ABSALOM P. FRAZIER, Ohio County, was born August 3, 1827, in Jefferson County, Ky., and in 1840, removed with his parents to Ohio County, where he still resides. In 1861 he enlisted in Company P, Seventeenth Kentucky Infantry, and remained with the regiment as teamster three years and four months, having an arm broken in the service. His father, Alexander Frazier, was born in 1793, in Shelby County, and died in Grayson County, in 1864. He was the son of Andrew Frazier, of Maryland, a Revolutionary soldier of Scotch-Irish descent. Alexander married Rosana, daughter of Absalom and Diademia (Webb) Pierce, of Shelby County, born in 1805, and now living, and to them were born Andrew J., Absalom P., Alfred (deceased), Allen L. (died a prisoner of war at Richmond, Va.), Gilbert H. (deceased), Ann A. (McDaniel), Elvira, and John W., who was drowned while in the army. Mr. Frazier is a farmer, owning 100 acres of good land. Being unmarried he is living with his mother and sister. Mr. Frazier is a member of the Reformed Church, and in politics a Republican. 

Note:  Some researchers indicate his middle initial is "T" rather than "P". It is thought that he never married. His Will was probated in October 1887 in Ohio County.  His Will was signed in Booneville, Warrick County, Indiana and also probated in Indiana, also during October 1887, so more than likely he was living in Indiana when he died but owned property in Kentucky.  I also found records of his service during the Civil War with Company F, Kentucky 17th Infantry Regiment 1862-1865.  He received a pension for his service of $6.00 per month due to a fractured arm; these records, from 1883, show his address as Rosine. His Civil War records indicate his middle initial is "P".
