Research Notes

Micajah/Michagia Frazier is listed on the same page of the 1810 Census as Lewis. He is listed as being at least 45 years of age in the 1810 Census. [3] That would put Micajah's birth year as 1765 or earlier. The best information regarding Micajah's age indicates he was born about 1753. In 1810 he would then be about 57 years of age, so this census record fits as Lewis's father. However, the 1850 Census indicates that Lewis was born in 1779.[1] If Lewis were born in 1779, he would have been 31 in 1810, so this also fits the 1810 census record.
