  • Vol. 2 - Hillis vs. Frazier--O. S. 398; N. S. 145--Copy of bill in Frazier vs. Ledgerwood, by John Frazier and Ann Frazier, who were children of Isabella Frazier, who was sister to Robert Moody who had taken John and Ann when young and reared them. When Moody died John was 40 years old. Moody promised to give orator and oratrix all his property in December, 1786 (Note: Robert Moody's will was proven on 18 April 1787).. His heirs were Rebecca Ledgerwood, Rebecca Berry, Esther Carruthers. (Note: this record, and the record below, help to establish the ages of some of this family. Since it appears that Robert Moody died in 1786, when his will was written, John Frazier is listed as being "40 years old when Moody died", so that would make John's birthdate as "abt. 1746").

Three of the children took all the land and left nothing for John and Anne, whom Robert Moody took care of.
