From further research and corrospondance with others on this message board, I have located information on Isaac Jenkinson Frazee b. 11/30/1858 in Indiana d. 6/23/1942 in Orange, CA.His father was William Doniphan Frazee (published many books as W.D. Frazee), and his paternal grandfather was Ephraim Frazee.This Ephraim Frazee married a Susan Doniphan b. 11/12/1794 in July 1816...I believe in Kentucky and they moved to Rush County, Indiana.
I am looking for more information on Ephraim Frazee.I believe he had to have been born sometime in the 1780-1790 time frame, possibly in Kentucky or NJ?I know a long time ago I traced this part of the family back to Elizabeth Township, New Jersey, but that was nearly a decade ago and I cannot find what I wrote down.
I am trying to get all of this together for a research paper on the impact my family lineage had on the early history of the United States.
I have learned also that Isaac J. Frazee traced his family back to inhabitants of Dunnotar Castle which is near Aberdeen, Scotland.I have a little bit of information on the Doniphans coming from Scotland/Spain, but nothing on Frazee.I was under the impression that the line from this Ephraim was originally in France, then the UK as Hugeunots (sp).It has been a while since I researched this, so I could be wrong, but I am dying to find out!!!
Please, any help you could send my way would be helpful.I need to have published or archived sources to use as well....anything out there?????
