Biography

Susannah Hamilton is thought to have been born circa 1755 (headstone has 1740).[1]

Circa 1772, Susannah is presumed to have married Micajah Frasher.[2]

Susannah is presumed to have died in 1852, in Drag Creek, Wayne County, Virginia (now West Virginia). She is buried in Frasher Cemetery in Wayne County, West Virginia.[1]

Research Note

There is a Suzan Frasher living in the household of Granville Frasher in the 1850 United States Census in Wayne County, Virginia (now West Virginia) listed as being 105 years old. (Perhaps they were 10 years off and she was only 95 years old and the widow of Micajah!) [3] Granville Frasher was the son of Hasten Frasher and therefore Susannah's grandson. This record supports the possibility that this is the same Susannah and she lived until 1852. The fact that the headstone lists her birthdate as 1740 lends credence that this person in the census is definitely one and the same Susannah.
