L.Way (Julia Ann Frazier Way) 310 N. Fifth Ave. Mrs. Frazer was 72 years of age and an old settler of Marshall county, having resided for thirty years near Bangor, where she owned property at the time of her death. Deceased was born in Boone Co IN (other sources say Kentucky, but it was likely somewhere else in IN, as Boone Co didn't exist the year she was born) She leaves three children, Mrs. Way (Julia Ann Frazier) of this city, Mr. J. N. Frazer (Jasper Newton Frazier) of Union. Mr. C.O. Frazer (Curtis Otwell Frazier) of this city was a brother in law. The funeral will be held Sunday afternoon from the Bangor Friends church of which the deceased was a member. Interrment following at the Bangor cemetary. (don't know why Cramelia Frazier Huber was excluded from this list. She was alive and living in Marshalltown at this time Possibly because she was no longer a Quaker? )

Have a great day!
