JOHN FRAZIER, CSA

 John Riley Frazier served 3 years and 7 months in the Confederate Army, and
 was injured in the battle of Franklin. As a Private in the 9th Tenn. Calvary
 he was captured by the Federals while recovering from his injury in December
 1864. He was released on January 28, 1865 in Nashville only to return to his
 company that later surrendered in May of 1865 near Boonville, MS. He was 
 discribed by the Federals as having a fair complexion, light hair, blue eyes
 and 6 feet in height.

 John never recovered from his wounds. His right hip was dislocated during the
 war and caused his right leg to be one inch shorter than the left. He had a
 depression just above and in front of his right ear, that caused great pain.
 He farmed all of his life and lived to be 77 years old.
