Oregon Republican League:

Republican League Register of Oregon, The Register Publishing Company, 1896, page 209.

FRATER, W. A., of Roseburg, was born in Eastern Ohio in 1843. He was Second Sergeant of Company E, One Hundred and Fortieth Ohio Volunteers, in the war, and at the close of the war returned to his farm. In 1877 he took his family to Kansas, but fire robbed him of all his possessions, and he came on to Oregon, locating in Douglas County. For sixteen years he lived there, engaged in farming, carpentering and other labor. In 1893 he was appointed Treasurer of Douglas County, to fill a vacancy, and in 1894 was elected to the position. He was a member of the county central committee in 1888 and a delegate to the county convention in 1890.
