Van Wert County
Lewis Frager, a native of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. Lewis was a boy when brought to Ohio by his parents. In 1852 he came to Van Wert County to take possession of a tract of land he had previously purchased in Union Township, but had never seen, but on arriving found that the tract was under water, and he consequently sought a new location, which he found in Ridge Township, his present home, which consisted of eighty acres, all in the woods, but to which he shortly added another tract of eighty acres. Here he erected a log home and moved his family into it before the roof was upon it, and of course the rain fell in torrents before the roof could be adjusted to it's place, but Mr. Frager devoted himself earnestly to the task of clearing and eventually developed as fine a farm as there was to be found in the county, although he possessed very limited means.
To Lewis and his wife Lucinda "Sydney" Harper, were born three children, Wesley, Melinda, and Louisa.
