~ all information provided here has been taken directly from the John Fraser family tree compiled in 1880 and as such is the only source for these writings - the objective being to record his work for further study and documentation ~ 

editor's note: As I entered this information I was struck by the fact that four of this couple's young children all died in 1818. A quick internet search revealed there were outbreaks of Typhoid Fever and Tuberculosis throughout Scotland that year.
