Frazier DNA Surprises



As I said in my last post, my Quaker FRAZIER family of North Carolina, Indiana & Iowa has provided me with the most autosomal DNA matches which have verifiable genealogical connections to THOMAS (aka GEORGE THOMAS) FRAZIER.

Here are some of the interesting things that I have discovered recently about this family via my results with 23andMe, Family Tree DNA & AncestryDNA:

--SAMUEL FRAZIER , a Quaker, b April 10, 1749 North Carolina (married REBECCA JULIAN) was definitely the son of THOMAS (aka GEORGE THOMAS) FRAZIER b 1725 & MARY PUGH.  Definitely. No doubt about it.  Six known descendants of THOMAS' other sons match descendants of SAMUEL on Chromosome 15 on the exact same chromosomal location. And I have nine more matches with descendants of SAMUEL on AncestryDNA yet to explore.

--DANIEL FRAZIER b about 1703 of Bertie Co North Carolina (married MARGARET DAWSON) was somehow related to THOMAS (aka GEORGE THOMAS) FRAZIER.   I have one match  from Family Tree DNA with  a descendant of DANIEL on Chromosome 6 (close to where other FRAZIER descendants are matching), and nine matches with descendants of DANIEL on AncestryDNA, which I am currently trying to verify through Gedmatch, since AncestryDNA does not have a chromosome browser.  It is my belief that this DANIEL FRAZIER of Bertie Co North Carolina was the brother of JOHN FRAZIER Sr of Carteret County North Carolina (who married MARY FALCONER)--likely parents of THOMAS (aka GEORGE THOMAS) FRAZIER.

--ALEXANDER FRAZIER a Quaker, b 1685 Scotland, died Dec 1750 Chester Co Pennsylvania (married SARAH COPPOCK) was somehow related to THOMAS (aka GEORGE THOMAS) FRAZIER.  I have six matches with descendants of ALEXANDER on AncestryDNA, which I am currently trying to verify through Gedmatch, since AncestryDNA does not have a chromosome browser. Some of the children of ALEXANDER FRAZIER migrated from Chester Co Pennsylvania to Guilford Co North Carolina in the early-mid 1700s, and can be found in the  New Garden & Center Quaker Monthly Meeting records. These are the same meetings that the children of THOMAS (aka GEORGE THOMAS)  FRAZIER attended.

In summary, here is a list of my current FRAZIER matches with Chromosome locations. I've removed the names of my DNA relatives for privacy's sake. No PUGH or OTWELL family descendants have matched to these same chromosomal locations--yet--so I'm guessing the connection is definitely through the FRAZIER family.

Very interesting..I have been doing the same research with my DNA results. I have almost all of your matches as well and have had some of your theories of kinship. I match many of the same and my Frazier family was in Campbell co VA. I match so many others in Chester PA and NC ones you have mentioned. I descend back to Thomas Frazier b. in the mid 1700's He had William, Micajah, Thomas, Benjamin and some daughters. I descend from his son Benjamin Frazier.
Thanks for posting

Betty, I am a descendant of Daniel Frazer and Margaret Dawson of Bertie Co. I've had my DNA tested on Ancestry, 23andme, and my brother's DNA tested on FTDNA. How can I find out if there are links to you?

Betty said...

Hi Teresa, I have tested with all three companies, and would show up in your match list(s). If I'm not there, then I don't share any DNA. Yours, Betty Tartas

I've been wondering about the supposed 1703 birthdate for Daniel Frazer. I've never seen a source for that date other than Ancestry trees. I keep coming across this quote (also unsourced): "I also have evidence (WFT) of a Daniel Frazier born JUly 2, 1688 in Alloa, Clackmanan, Scotland, who died about 1760 in Granville County. He was married to Margaret Dason and their children are lised as Malachi, Jeremiah, and William.
Other evidence from Internet shows Jeremiah born in Alloa Clackmanan, Scotland on July 2, 1688 and died in Granville County in 1760. His wife is shown as Margaret Dason, born in Scotland." Unless Daniel Frazer was 12 years old when captured at the Battle of Prestonpans, the 1688 birthdate in Scotland makes more sense. Wishing I had source material for any of this.
