|Death: ||Jun. 26, 1896|
Two sources give two different sets of information:
#1-Frazey, George W. Age 18. Residence Blairstown, nativity Ohio. Enlisted March 3, 1862. Mustered March 3, 1862. Mustered out March 20,1865, expiration of term of service. See company F, Fourteenth Infantry.
This unit fought at the Battle of Shiloh and many others.
#2-Co. B 14th Iowa Infantry, enlisted in Blairstown, Iowa-Frazey, George W. (Frazer) Age 18. Residence Vandalia, nativity Indiana. Enlisted Sept. 28, 1861. Mustered Nov. 1, 1861. Discharged for disability Oct. 15, 1862, Keokuk, Iowa. (Company F) George Frazier - #2 is buried in Roseburg National Cemetery in Oregon FAG # 43424785. This is not the Frazey for this memorial.
#1 is this G.W. Frazey. His tombstone says Company B also the pension index lists it as first F then Company B. also his pension papers give the correct family members and locations.
Co. B is the residuary company. This was also called the Veterans Reserve Corps. The 14th Iowa after it re-enlisted, it was sent to Springfield, Illinois where it ended serving as the honor guard for President Lincoln's funeral escort and tomb sentry.
The cemetery was called Pleasant Ridge at the time and the town was called Linden.
Military lists an alternate name as George W. Frazee an Frazer. Also middle initial W and M.
He buried a son and daughter. There are two young children buried next to him. It is presumed to be his children. The daughter is Lillie Grace.
It appears he was a distant cousin of Horace R. Flint, also buried at Knoles.
He was living in 1890 in Falls, Oklahoma Indian Territory with Norman as his postal address then moved to Linden. He is on the Pension Records for Little River. He died on June 26 ,1896. His tombstone did not have a date of birth or death. The pension index listed Jul 1896 as his death. At the time of ordering pension records could not be found so the death date of July was inscribed on his tombstone. Later the records were obtain and found his death date was 26 June 1896 but it was too late, the inscription had been done. The name and unit were illegible so they were re-inscribed.
His grave and many others were nearer to the road. When Franklin Road was widened, many graves were graded away. The hill was removed making the road flat. This left Frazey's Grave and many others in danger of washing away. A court order was obtained and these graves were moved further in for safety.
