The Frazers of Martinsburg, New York

Recently, I have looked more into the Martinsburg, New York to see the Frazer connections. As shown below, Frazer arrived there about 1837, 1846, 1850, and 1851.

The first Irish Frazer came to Martinsburg as a Hazard. Earlier researchers had that Ann Frazer married John Hazard and immigrated to the US where the family changed the name to Hassard. It appears, however, that this John is recorded as a William in the official records. He did however, have a son named John. This Ann was a younger sister to Mary Frazer who married William Johnston below. If the 1855 census for Martinsburg is correct, then their first child was born in New York city about 1832. Subsequent children were born in Lewis County - presumably Martinsburg beginning about 1837.

The second Frazer in Martinsburg was Patrick or Henry (or both) Frazer from the James line. The 1855 State Census has the Henry there 9 years or since 1846 with his wife and 5 children. They also owned land there.

The third Irish Frazer to come to Martinsburg was actually the Johnstons. This family married the Frazers on a regular basis in Roscommon. Mary Frazer married William Johnston at the Ardcarne Church in 1815 and according to the unknown mid 20th century Doug Vaugh relative researcher, she immigrated to the USA. I didn't realize I'd be able to find any of these USA Frazers, but now I have. There is a shipping record of William Johnston with 4 other younger Johnstons in 1850.

The fourth Frazer to come to Martinsburg was also the youngest. He was Richard Frazer baptized at Arcdarne in 1830. Although he was shown on the census as 21, if this is the same Richard baptized in Ardcarne in 1830, he should have been 25 in 1855. The census shows that he had lived in the county for 4 years or since about 1851. At any rate, this Richard married Amelia Hazard, presumed daughter of William John Hazard and Ann Frazer and had children. If I have it right, the surviving child, George, would have had 3 related Frazer grandparents.
