Dear Betty, James and family,
My name is Richard Wayne Fraser and I am William Plumlee Fraser's son. My grandmother was Mary Majorie Magdalene Ogden Fraser. And our great or (great-great) grandmother, Sally Roupe we share in common. I'm new at this, but I'm trying to put together my family heritage. I have a lot of information that I have received from my dad, W.P. Lee Fraser. The information is not documented, so I'm in the process in learning what I need to do. I am using the services of the genealogy department of Fort Worth, Texas public library. The first thing they required of me was to fill out a Pedigree Chart and Family Group for each family husband and wife info with their children's info. Then I am going back to the library for follow up with checking the information out against the library's records. The federal government census information records will be the source for doing the cross-checking.
I'm going to send you some brief information with some blank forms that you can make copies of to fill out your family tree information. If you would fill out the information known to you, and I will verify at the library. Your help would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help you can give to me. If you are any of your family members would like to contact me about our family history please do.
After I have done my research, I hope to write a book on my family history.
What country did you family come from? Do you know any stories about your family?
Do you know if any persons who fought in any American or foreign wars?
I know more about my dad's side of the family than my mother's side. My mother was a Hayden. The came from Oklahoma, Kentucky, Virginia and Somerset Shire England. I will find out soon that information.
Daniel Fraser came to American as a stowaway on a ship around 1743 to 46. His uncle was Simon Fraser the 12th Lord of Lovat in Scotland. There were many Frasers in Scotland. One Sir Simon Fraser fought with William Wallace for Scotland freedom from England in the 14th century. Simon had married the sister of Robert the Bruce or Robert the I, king of Scotland after its freedom from England with the Pope's blessing. Robert the Bruce was formerly called Robert the Bruce the VIII. I don't know if you saw the movie Braveheart where Mel Gibson played William Wallace. Both Simon Fraser and William Wallace were hanged in England for their attempt in trying to free Scotland. Later Robert the Bruce won the freedom for Scotland.
The first Frasers came to Scotland around 1060 from France, probably Anjou, France, and they were called La Fraseliere or La Frazeliere. I have a lot of gaps to fill in.
Dad is still alive in Denver Colorado at his old address. He is remarried to a woman named Dee. Dad is ninety years old now. He has several problems with aches and pains. He is still mentally alert, but does have some memory problems. (Note today 042704 dad is 96 and failing fast)
Are all of your families well? Have there been any deaths in your family since dad last contacted you?
I will close for now, but I will give you more information to you later, after I hear from you.
Thanks for any help you can give to me for filling in the information on our family history.
(Note today I have a better record of the family)
