I am seeking information on my g-g-grandfather,William A. Fraser/Frazier and his wife, Margaret Foote. Both were from Kings County, Nova Scotia, and are in Blue Earth County by 1875 and were living in Mankato in 1880. The children that I know of are John Austin, (my g-grandfather) Maggie, Amelia, Ella, Willie, (died as a baby), Bessie and Earl. Margaret Fraser died in 1884 and some of the children appear to be living in other households in 1885. Maggie is in the home of Jennie McDuffie. In 1885, Earl is in the home of Caleb Foote and his wife Sophia. Caleb was Margaret Foote Fraser's half-brother.
William Fraser was re-married in about 1887 to Clementine Cameron. They had a second family and were in Otter Tail County on the 1900 Census. William died there in 1919, a victim of a cyclone that killed over 50 people.
Any help on these Fraser/Foote lines would be greatly appreciated
