Descendants of Isaac Frazier, Sr.

Generation No. 1

1. ISAAC1 FRAZIER, SR.1,2 was born Bef. 1750 in Virginia3,4, and died Abt. 1801 in Rapides Parish, Louisiana. He married OLIVIA LEE5,6. She was born Abt. 1755 in Virginia7,8, and died Aft. 1830 in Rapides Parish, Louisiana8.

Notes for ISAAC FRAZIER, SR.:
The following was extracted from Carolyn Frazier Cathey’s and Margaret Rose Brunson Hickman’s “Frazier File”.

Isaac Frazier, Sr., born prior to 1762 (based on land grantage records), died 1801- 1802. He was married to Olivia Lee. Baptism records of a grandson, William Miller, indicate that Isaac and Olivia were natives of Virginia. Isaac, Olivia and Olivia’s family are found in the Old 96th District, Union County South Carolina in 1779. Isaac and his brother-in-laws were Loyalists in Major Daniel Plummer’s Regiment, Fair Forrest Militia, Ninety-Six Brigade.

Olivia was born 1750-1760 and died after the 1830 census. The following sketchy data was obtained from hours of skimming through old, dusty records in the State Land Office in Baton Rouge and from published information in books.

The first record we have of Isaac Frazier in Louisiana is the census of the Opelousas Post in 1783: "Isaac Frazier, one male in the middle-age group; four females; six cattle; one horse; and, no land.

August 10, 1794 – Isaac Frazier was one of many signers of a petition to the Military Governor of Louisiana to allow them to settle on an area near Catahoula Lake. This is the area along Bayou Flagon.

In 1799 or 1800, the census taken of the Rapides Post listed: "Isaac Frazer – Age 25-49; wife – age 25-49; children – 4 boys (1-24 years old); 2 females (1-24 years old).

Apparently, Isaac Frazier, or the other settlers did not wait for permission to settle on the land near Catahoula Lake, for we find early Land Records, bulging with statements that they settled there about 1799.

In 1803, when the United States made the Louisiana Purchase, it became necessary for the settlers to apply to the Bureau of Land Management to be able to retain the Spanish Grants. The following are depositions of friends and family members submitted to support the land claims.

Deposition of Matthew Nugent relative to the claim of the heirs of Isaac Frazier: This deponent, being first sworn, deposes and says that about seven or eight years ago, Isaac Frazier, father of the claimants, built a mill and cleared about one and half or two acres of some land and that about two years after, he died, and his widow enjoyed the benefit of it until it was destroyed by flood. Shortly after the death of the said Isaac Frazier, Benjamin Miller, who had been appointed guardian to the children moved on the land and has continued to live there ever since. 25th December 1806. Matthew Nugent.

Deposition of Benjamin Miller relative to the claim of the heirs of Isaac Frazier: The heirs of Isaac Frazier claim six hundred and forty acres of land lying on the Bayou Fragon (sic), by virtue of a settlement made by the said Isaac Frazier. The said tract of land was settled eight or nine years ago, and has been occupied ever since for the benefit of the heirs ever since the death of their father, which happened about five or six years ago.

Deposition of Robert Sandifer relative to the claim of the heirs of Isaac Frazier for the Spanish Grant in Rapides Parish on Bayou Flagon. This deponent, being first sworn, deposeth and saith that the land claimed was settled in the year 1802 by Benjamin Miller, who has resided on it ever since. The improvements consist of 15 or 20 acres of cleared land, several cabins and a mill. Signature – Robert Sandefur.

Olaviah Frazier claims six hundred and forty acres of land lying on Bayou Flagon in the county of Rapides – by virtue of settlement made under the second act of congress.

Deposition of Benjamin Miller relative to the claim of Olavia Frazier: This deponent being first sworn deposes and says that the claimant, Olaviah Frazier (with her husband) settled on the land claimed 8 or 9 years ago, and actually resided and cultivated a crop on the same in the year 1803, they had an improvement of 19 or 20 acres of land cleared and a good log house. 25 February 1806 – Benj. Miller.

Deposition of Benjamin Miller relative to the claim of McCuin Barrow: The deponent being first sworn deposeth and saith that early in the year 1803, the claimant McCuin Barrow, with his family settled on the land claimed, and cleared thereon four or five acres which he cultivated in corn. He continued to live on the said land until some time after Christmas when his wife died and then moved off the land. The next year he cultivated a small crop on the land and has since that had a tenant on it. 26th Feb. 1806 – Benj. Miller.

On the basis of the strong supporting testimonies that the heirs of Isaac Frazier had indeed been on the land, cultivated it, and inhabited it, they, and their mother (Olivia Frazier), were granted their claims to the Spanish Grants bu the Bureau of Land Management. In addition, Michael LaCroix and Benjamin Miller were granted land by the Bureau of Land Management, all along Bayou Flagon.

The 1810 Rapides census lists: Frazer, Mde. (Madam) 2 males 10-16, 2 males 16-26, 1 female 45-up.

The 1820 Rapides census (living on Bayou Flagon) lists: Oliviah Frazer, 1 male 16-26, 1 male 45-up, 1 female 10-16, 1 female 16-26, 1 female 45-up.

It appears that there is another family in the home with Olivia, probably a daughter and a son-in-law with their family.

The 1830 census lists: Olivia Frazer, 1 male 60-70, 1 female 70-80,. This is the last census in which Olivia has been located.
