Jeremiah Frazier

Parents

Father Daniel Frazer Jeremiah's father is usually assumed to be Daniel Frazer but this is based on the assumption that Jeremiah was the brother of William, for whom a case can be made that Daniel was his father. There is actually very little documentation that links Jeremiah and William.. 
Mother Unknown  

Lifespan

Born Bef. 1733   Calculated from marriage to Fathy.
Died Abt. 1811 Granville County, NC Assuming that the entry in the tax list for 1811 is his. He was certainly alive in May 1809, when he made a deed of gift to his son Howell.

Marriages

Spouse Fathy Bef. 1753 Calculated from birth of Ephraim.
Children Ephraim Abt. 1754 Ephraim is often assumed to be Jeremiah's brother. This is not impossible, though he appears to have been much younger than Jeremiah, but it seems equally possible that he was Jeremiah's eldest son. Jeremiah witnessed the deed when Ephraim bought his first land in Granville County and there is no earlier record of Ephraim.
  Elizabeth Abt. 1764 Elizabeth married Zachariah Hester and they named a son Jeremiah and a daughter Fathy.
  William Bef. 1766 William's will names his brother Howell as an executor. Howell is known to have been the son of Jeremiah.
  Robert Bef. 1772 Robert and Jeremiah bought land next to one another on Tabbs Creek.
  Jeremiah Bef. 1772 Jeremiah obtained a horse from Jeremiah Jr., which he later gave to Philip. In the bill of sale the two Jeremiah's are referred to as Jeremiah Sr. and Jeremiah Jr. This does not necessarily mean they were related but it seems likely. 
  Nancy Abt. 1772 When Nancy married William Bearden Jeremiah Frazier was the bondsman (either Jeremiah Sr. or Jeremiah Jr.).
  Stephen Bef. 1778  Stephen first appears in the Granville County tax list in 1799. The possibilities for his father appear to be Ephraim and Jeremiah, since Stephen is not mentioned in the wills of either William or Malachi. A different Stephen appears more likely to be the son of Ephraim and Jeremiah was listed with Stephen in the Abrams Plains tax list for 1799, instead of Oxford where he would normally have been listed. Possibly he was helping Stephen with his first tax submission after his marriage to Mary Vass on 04 Jun 1798. 
  Philip   In adeed of gift Jeremiah gave Philip a horse he had obtainedfrom Jeremiah Jr. This suggests that they were related.
  John Bef. 1779  John is referred to as Jeremiah's son in a deed.
  Howell 1779-1780 Howell is referred to as Jeremiah's youngest son in a deed.
  Susannah Abt. 1784 When Susannah married Yearby Bressie Jeremiah Frazier was the bondsman (either Jeremiah Sr. or Jeremiah Jr.).
