Frazier, James A., one of the most prominent men of the town of Hoosick, began life at the foot of the ladder.
His father, James A. Frazier, a Scotchrnan, died when he was but a child, and he was thus early thrown upon his
own resources. He was borne at Shelburne Falls, Vt., and came to White Creek. Washington county, in 1861. Here
he acquired his education by laboring as an employé on the farm through the summer and attending school
winters, at last teaching during the winter seasons. After nine years of much labor he became Store manager for
R. Carpenter & Co.'s factory store, where he remained fifteen years, when they went Out of business. He is
now dealer in pressed hay, etc., and owns two large farms of 400 acres, and is also largely engaged in lumber business.
Although an ardent Democrat, he will not accept any public service. Mr. Frazier has been twice married, first in
1874 to Anna Dailey of White Creek. who died in 1888. Of her six children four survive her. His second marriage
was with Mrs. Nora McEnry of Cambridge, N. Y. He is a member of the R. C. church.
