Memorable Manitobans: George Frazer (1858-?)

Farmer.

He came to Manitoba in 1880 and took up a homestead claim, remaining on it for three years, after moving to Clanwilliam where he bought a small farm. He gradually acquired more land until he had 3,200 acres. He was a promoter of the Minnedosa dam project and served as a Reeve of the Rural Municipality of Minto in 1904. He and wife Susan Price had four children: Richard P. Frazer, James C. Frazer (b 1894), Harvey Frazer (b 1896), and Clifford Frazer (b 1899). He was a member of the IOOF.
