Generation No. 2

2.  DUNCAN2 FRASER (HUGH1) was born Bef. 19 Oct 1761 in Inverness, Inverness-shire, Scotland.  He married NANCY FRASER.  She was born 1766 in Scotland, and died 05 Aug 1840 in Madison Township, Columbiana County, Ohio.

Notes for DUNCAN FRASER:.  He was christened on 19 Oct 1761 in Inverness, Inverness, Scotland.  Not wishing to rear his family in Scotland (after three of his uncles had been burned at the stake fro their faith in Christ), Duncan Fraser (who was tailor to Lord Cavanaugh) started to America with his wife Nancy (both were Highland Scots from near Edinburgh) and their four children-- three girls and a boy, Daniel, in the year 1804.

All went well on the journey until one of the little girls became ill from teething and died.  They bore the burial of this child at sea, as only Scotch Presbyterians--"strong in the Loard and the power of His might" -- could endure such a trial.

Near the end of the journey, another of their baby girls died, leaving only Daniel and Isabel.  A second burial was more than the mother's heart could endure; since the journey was so nearly over, she concealed the body in their cabin.  It wasn't long before the captain noticed sharks following their vessel; he went about inquiring if anyone was concealing a body.  In a moment of weakness, the mother denied being guilty.  However, in a few more hours the captain came again saying, "There SURELY is a dead body concealed somewhere, as the man-eating sharks are lashing the ship with their tails so terrifically that all on board will be lost of it can't be stopped".

Duncan finally persuaded Nancy, his wife, there was no other way out but to give up the body.  So with the deepest of agony, another baby was given to the waves in burial.  As soon as this was done, the sharks left the ship in peace, and all were safe...until land was sighted.

Then, the captain and crew were so jubilant that they proceeded to get drunk, letting the vessel drift about aimlessly.  Daniel Fraser, the lad of ten years, was sitting near the railing playing, and said, "Oh! Here are green weeds!"  The captain, hearing the remark as he staggered by, sobered instantly to the extent that he called all hands to work at once.  But it was too late; the vessel grounded on the rocky island of Beaufort, just off the coast of North Carolina, in spite of all they could do.

The lifeboats were lowered and manned.  The passengers were taken as near to land as possible in the shallow water, then all got out and formed a chain by holding hands and running when the waves (of the tide) receded.  But when a great wave would come in, it would knock them all flat; yet, when it was gone, up they got and made another run and so on until they were on dry ground.

In one of the "downs" the boy Daniel was lost.  A man by the name of Andrew Smith had grown so attached to Daniel throughout the journey that he insisted he would go back and try

to find the boy.  All were afraid Smith would be lost and not find the boy, either.  He felt so strongly that he was right, they gave their consent and out he went.  Only a short distance out into the waters (of the Atlantic Ocean) Andrew saw a bulk nearly covered with sand.  This "lump" proved to be Daniel with a large blue and white wool coverlid about him (sufficient to give him breath) both were brought safely and alive to land.

They found a hut on the island with axes, guns, ammunitions, and so-forth, which proved a blessing to them in their we, hungry state. They later learned the hut and supplies belonged to men on the mainland who came over from time to time to attend a drove of hogs they had on the island.

The first night on the island, a baby boy, John Falconer, was born to parents in the group; here, Daniel's coverlid came in handy.

From the casks and barrels of food stuff which floated ashore from the broken vessel, toghter with the wild game the men were able to kill (they would not think of killing the hogs), they fared very well. When the men who owned the hogs made their next trip to the island, the shipwrecked families were taken to the mainland.

The Fraser family's money had been lost in the shipwreck, except a treasured keepsake (a silver dollar with a hole in it), which had been worn of a ribbon about the neck of the first child who was buried (sic) at sea.  The Fraser Family-- Duncan, Nancy, Daniel and Isabel--journeyed from Charleston, South Carolina to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and stayed there four years.  Then, on to the Scottish settlement, six miles  from Wellsville, Ohio, where they "took up" land near the Yellow Creek Scotch Settlement.

In this settlement Daniel grew to manhood and met a neighbor-girl, Euphemia Oglevie (sic), whose father, George Oglevie and his wife, Isabel (both Highland Scotch) had left Inverness "Sunnyshire" Scotland with their two children, Euphemia, 2 years old, and the other a small baby, and Isabel's sister, Janet, for the grand new world, America.

The Oglevies shipped from Nairn, Scotland, in 1802.  During the long perilous journey, drinking water became so scarce that it was apportioned--so much daily to each passenger.  When little Euphemia would cry for a drink of water, it so troubled the heart of one James McKenzie that he saved all of his portion he possibly could for the baby.

During the journey the vessel became disabled and another ship was sighted and signaled to their aid.  When it came alongside, a plank was placed from one ship to the other, and the passengers were thus transferred-- all except baby Euphemia who was handed across from her mother to Janet.  Whither the ship lurched at that moment or what, Euphemia was dropped!  She was saved only through Janet quickly catching her by the voluminous clothing of the day.

Without further mishap, they landed on Jamaica Island off South Carolina.  After many weeks of weary travel, the Oglevie family (and others) arrived in what has ever since borne the name of "The Scotch Settlement" at Yellow Creek, Columbiana
