Deborah Fraser Padgett USA Alabama Apr 11, 2017
My father is Phillip Harold Fraser. He was youngest sibling. Oldest was Elliott Nathaniel, and other was Donald. Sisters were Marie, Lou and Edith. Father was Alexander grant Fraser. His Father was James Terrance Fraser. His Father was Richard Fraser born Petersburg, VA in 1812. Richard had a brother Duncan Fraser born 1809 in Kirkhill, Inverness Scotland. We believe the Father was William and Mother Margaret. We also believe the William was connected to a John and a Alexander Fraser. There was a trip back to Scotland by William and John to defend their right to property they believed to be theirs rightfully as heirs but lost. I am having hard time connecting back to Scotland from Richard as records were destroyed in fire in Petersburg, VA. Richard married Georgiana Moncrief. There are Grants in the family also. Please email me with any info.
