My great-great-great grandfather William A. Frazier built this house around 1850 in Columbia county Arkansas (about 7 miles from Magnolia, AR). This house was a plantation, and had a slave quarters in the back. I do not know how many slaves William had. After researching cemetery records for Frazier cemetery, I did find a slave buried there with the name Jessie Frazier who died in 1886. After the civil war ended in 1865, William was forced to sell the house and land due to financial issues. The house is now privately owned.
The house is also on the national register for historical places. If you click on the house you can look up the registry number.
The house was also the site of the first court house for Columbia county Arkansas; although the marker has been moved from the exact location.
William Frazier was married to Elizabeth Sarah Pullig whom he met in South Carolina where he was originally born.
