     one of the prosperous farmers of Franklin township, where he owns 136 acres of valuable land which is particularly well adapted to stock raising, was born January 12, 1860, in Green township, Shelby county, and is a son of Benjamin and Elizabeth (Woods) Frazier. The parents of Mr. Frazier were well known and respected residents of Green township for many years, where the father followed the mason trade. Both passed away some years ago and their burial was in the cemetery at Plattsville. They were members of the Universalist church and reared their family in that liberal religious faith. Their children were: Beulah, who is the wife of Thomas Buchanon; John; Harriet, who is the wife of Rudolph Peppers; Amy, who is the wife of Edward Emley; George; Alfred; and Ida, who is the wife of James Eldredge.
     After his school days were over, George A. Frazier learned the plastering trade, which he followed for fifteen years, during which he bought forty acres of land in Green township. He resided on that place for sixteen years but in 1900 sold it and then purchased his present property in Franklin township, from Abe Emley. The residence needed but little remodeling but a new barn was required and Mr. Frazier erected a commodious one which probably is the most modern barn in the township. He has a complete water system which he controls with a gas engine. For some time he has been interested in raising Jersey cattle and Duroc hogs and is making preparations to go into the stock business extensively.
     In January, 1884, Mr. Frazier was married to Miss Hannah Hill, who was born in Miami county, O., a daughter of John and Hannah (Howell) Hill, well known people in that part of the state, and beside Mrs. Frazier they had three other children: Josephine, who is the wife of Frank Pence; Eugenia, who is the wife of James McCormick; and Telford. Two children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Frazier: Genie, who resides at home; and Kate, who is the wife of Lyman Alien, who is a farmer in Franklin
township; and they have one son, George. Mr. Frazier and family attend the Universalist church. He is identified with the democratic party but is not a man to seek political honors for himself, although in every way well qualified for the same.
