THE WESTERN STAR, 18 July 1902
Obituary of OREN S. FRAZIER

FRAZIER - On Sunday, July 13, 1902, at his home in Avilla-tp., Comanche-co., Kansas, Oren S. Frazier, aged 64 years, 9 months and 21 days.

Another of the pioneer settlers of Comanche-co. and one of her honored and respected citizens has passed away. At 7:30 a.m. on last Sunday the great spirit of Oren S. Frazier passed to the Great Beyond. For several weeks he had been in quite poor health, but there were no alarming conditions until late Saturday night when he became considerably worse. Early Sunday morning a messenger was dispatched for a physician but death ensued after a very short time. A bronchial affection seemed to be the immediate cause of death. For several years Mr. Frazier had been an occasional sufferer from asthma.

The deceased was born in Oxford, Erie-co., Ohio, on September 22, 1837. On December 2, 1863, he was married to Ruth S. Webb, by whom he had three children - two sons, E. E. and H. C. and one daughter, Mrs. J. H. Laffoon, now a resident of Cass-co., Missouri. In the spring of 1886 Mr. Frazier moved with his family from Ohio to Comanche-co., settling in Avilla-tp. where he had ever since continued to live. He was known and respected by a large circle of friends by whom he regarded as a good neighbor and a worthy citizen. His life had been devoted to pure motives and worthy purposes. He united with the M. E. church in Milan, Ohio, in 1859.

Funeral services were held at 2 p.m. on Monday at the Missouri Valley School house and were attended by a large number of the neighbor and friends of the deceased. Rev. J. C. Fisher, of the M. E. church, had charge of the services and preached a brief, but very appropriate sermon, using as a text James 4-14, "What is your life?" It is even as a vapor that appeareth for a time and then vanisheth away." Interment took place in the Coldwater cemetery.
