Biography of Isaac J. Frazier
Tompkins County, NY Biographies





Frazier, Isaac J., was born in New Jersey, October 17, 1813, and with his parents moved in 1817 to Saratoga county, N. Y where he received his early education in the common schools, which he attended winters and worked on the farm during the summer time. At the age of twenty seven he opened a store at Dunning's Street Corners, and the same year married Dorothy Ann Usher, of Saratoga county, by whom he had six children, Of these, three survive; Sheldon Fiske Frazier, the son, enlisted in 1862 and served till the close of the war, since which he has been ordained as a minister of the M. E. church. Our subject came to this county in 1845 from Saratoga county, making the journey in a wagon and starting in the spring. The journey was remarkable, as the waters of the Mohawk River, which he was forced to cross, were very high, and the roads almost impassable. He first settled about two miles east of Ithaca, where he remained three years, then in 1848 bought what was known as the Wyatt farm, of seventy five acres, to which he afterwards added, raising grain, hay and stock, and paying special attention to dairying. He is a Republican, and has been a member of the M. E. church since 1839. He is regarded as one of the foremost men of the town.
