 Descendants of SARAH "SALLIE" FRAZIER
 Including notes and additional research updated: Oct 15, 2003

 ROBERT FRAZIER was born about 1823 in TN, and died before 1870. He was married
 three times and had 11 children before 1870. His third wife was MARY ELIZABETH
 Frazier (last name unknown). She was born about 1827 in Virginia, and died
 after 1880. Robert is on page 138 of 1860 Census of Wayne Co, TN living in
 district six in the township of Ashland.

 MARY ELIZABETH FRAZIER, the third wife of Robert is on the 1870 Wayne Co, TN
 Census in district 6 page 463 and the 1880 Wayne Co, TN Census in district 5
 on page 28. She is listed as a widow. She was born in Virginia and both of
 her parents also listed as born in Virginia.

 The eleven children born to ROBERT FRAZIER in order of birth include;
 WILLIAM Homer Frazier, SARAH "Sallie" Frazier (Suratt), SAMUEL Frazier,
 JOHN Riley Frazier, ROBERT Frazier, GEORGE N. Frazier, THOMAS Sidney Frazier,
 URSULA Elizabeth Frazier (Warren), MARY Ann "Annie" Frazier (Jackson),
 MARTHA Frazier (Whitehead) and James Andrew Frazier.

 Most of this family remained in or around Wayne Co, TN while John and Sarah 
 moved to Dyer Co, TN, were both are buried. Some of the descendants of Thomas
 Frazier moved to Oklahoma and Arizona.

 SARAH "SALLIE" FRAZIER was born Feb 1842 and died Jan 23, 1923 in Dyer Co, TN.
 The death year for Sarah may be off by a few years. I could not find a death
 record for Sarah with multiple spellings of her last name in the death index
 for the state of Tennessee. I had another researcher from Dyer Co, TN that
 checked the records in Nashville, TN and he was unable to produce a death
 record for Sarah with the year 1923.

 Maybe she died in another state. She was buried in Dyer Co, TN and 20 years prior
 to 1920, she was living in Dyer Co, TN per the census records. She was found living
 with her son John Clay Seratt in 1920, listed as his mother and as a widow.

 I did find the death certificate for Frances Bell (Seratt) Duncan (1866-1937), the
 first born child of Sarah and John Seratt. The death certificate listed her mother
 as Miss Frazier.

 I first discovered the name Sarah Seratt from the journal of Eula V. Frazier. 
 She wrote a 51-page journal about her family. Eula was the youngest daughter of
 John Riley Frazier and Nancy Catherine Long. Eula was the last of 8 children and
 was born Dec 12, 1909 in Gibson Co, TN and died March of 1973 in Crockett Co, TN.
 Her father John Riley Frazier was born Mar 07, 1845 in Wayne Co, TN and died
 Aug 04, 1922 in Dyersburg, TN.

 The Journal of Eula Frazier includes:
 Chapter 1
 When my daddy was a Boy he lived with his Father & Mother and Brother & Sister.
 His sister was Sallie, his Brother Sam. They were his half Brother and Sister.
 Then his Father and Mother had 2 more Boys. Jim Frazier and George Frazier.
 He tales his children about what he did when he was a Boy. He lived in Middle
 Tennessee. Him and Sallie would go hunting in the wood for some kind of meet,
 Rabbit or squirrels, and of course they would get into something they had no
 business to.

 Chapter 6
 We started out the First of July in 1918, we cross the Mississippi River. I had
 seen the river but hadn't crossed it since I could remember. I was 8 years old.
 We cross the river at Eallars Weaves and got off at Cotton Wood Point we came on
 till we got to Mingle Wood and my Mother Cook us some Dinner. From there to
 to Finley, Tennessee and we stayed all night there. The next morning my Mother
 maid us Breakfast...we started on to Dyerburg Tennessee.
 We meet some of Daddies Folks. His half sister Aunt Sallie, Cousin Bell Dunkins
 & her husbman, and some of Aunt Sallie's Boys John & Dug Serrett. We stayed till
 the seckon of July.
