     Elmina Sutlief Frasier, wife of Nathaniel Frasier
20 June 1907
The death of Mrs. Elmira Fraser, one of the oldest women of this section of the state, occurred on Thursday afternoon last, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. A. H. Hatch, of Starrville, this county.A few weeks ago, Mrs. Fraser broke her hip, and owing to her advanced age-she was in her ninety-ninth year the shock was too great for her to withstand. The funeral was held on Saturday forenoon last from her late home, Rev. A. E. Healey, of Port Huron, her former pastor, officiating. Burial took place in Starrville cemetery. Several St. Clair people attended the funeral.Mrs. Fraser was one of the few real daughters" of the American Revolution in the country. That is to say, her father was an active participant in the Revolutionary War. Ot-si-ke-ta chapter of that organization always took considerable interest in the old lady and sent her flowers on many occasions, that her might know that she was remembered, even though unable to attend the meetings of the chapter.Her surviving children are Mrs. W. A. Tripp, of this city, Mrs. A.H. Hatch, of Starrville, and Albert Fraser, of Adair.Mrs. A. H. Hatch prepared the following interesting account of her mother's life, which was read before the St. Clair County Pioneer Society at its meeting Tuesday in this city:'Ladies and Gentlemen, Members of this Pioneer Society: Your president thinking it would be interesting at this meeting to have a short memorial of my mother, Mrs. Elmira Fraser, she has asked me to prepare a brief sketch, as she was one of the oldest residents of this county. She passed to her reward last week. Had she lived until November, she would have been 99 years old. I have had such a short time to prepare this that it is very imperfect but trust you will not criticize too severely.Elmira Sutlief was the youngest of seven children, her parents, Jannar Sutlief and Hephsilah Storey came from good old Puritan stock. The Storys, having come over from England the next summer after the pilgrims landed in Massachusetts. At the age of sixteen her father, Jannar Sutlief, went to the revolutionary war as a drummer but later, his father being disabled in battle, he took his place and served to the end of the terrible struggle. Some years after he married and settled in Norwich, Conn. As time passed by the western fever broke out and they decided to emigrate to the far west. What did that mean a hundred years ago? To them it meant the Mohawk Valley, in middle New York. But in those days it was a much longer journey than a trip to California or any other part of these United States or even Europe would be now. I have heard my grandmother tell how with her six children and few household goods they were two weeks on the journey, on wagons sometimes drawn by horses but oftener by oxen. Here they crossed the Hudson river on a scow paddled by four men, but finally reached their destination, Johnstown, Montgomery Co., N.Y. There their youngest child my mother, was born. They next moved to Jefferson County, near Sackett's Harbor, where her father again enlisted in the war of 1812, and though but four or five years old, she could distinctly remember her mother taking her to Sackett's Harbor to see the soldiers march and recognizing her father among them. When she was 18 her father died after a lingering illness of consumption and left her with her widowed mother to meet life's battles alone the other children having all married and left home. Not being blessed with very much of the world's goods, (few were in those days), they had to work hard, spinning and weaving and caring for the sick until she was 22, when she married Nathaniel Frasier. Together they made them a home in Clayton, Jefferson County, N.Y. My earliest recollection of life is of that old farm where the everlasting hills and rocks made such a pleasant picture.The cold, cold spring gushing from the rocky ledge on the hillside and flowing in a beautiful steam that never ran dry, the whole length of the farm. But the spirit of unrest prevails in human nature and in 1852 the farm was sold with the intentions of going west. But the gold fever of 1849 had not abated in that section and my father with two or three neighbors started for the Eldorado. It was a long and aedious journey in those days and I well remember my mother's anxiety until the first letter came telling of his safe arrival. Now father was gone and mother must bear the burden alone and see to it that the savings of former years was not encroached upon for present support.That must be by judicious investment, strict economy and hard work. She increased the fund instead of diminishing it. On account of poor health, my father returned less than two years having failed to secure the fortune he so fondly anticipated.Then came the journey west. 52 years ago, you know, Michigan was away out west. In October, 1855, we arrived in New Port now Marine City,coming on a propeller from Clayton, through the Welland canal to Detroit, then taking the river boat, the old Ruby. Some of these old pioneers must remember her, she could go all the way from Detroit to Port Huron in one day and back the next. Soon after arriving they purchased a farm in Cottrelville township, then called Ira. We arrived at the farm one bleak November evening a desolate looking place, all a flat swamp to us, who had always lived among the beautiful hills. How hardpoor mother tried to cheer us up and look to the bright side herself so homesick she could hardly keep up. There again was a situation calling for hard work and good courage and she never failed to respond. It was 7 or 8 miles to town the way the road went then and a horrible road at that, so that it was often difficult to get there. The neighbors soon learned of her skill in nursing and caring for the sick and many was the midnight ride she took on horse back to assist some poor mother in caring for a sick child, or other member of the family. And all is time she was attending to her household affairs with the assistance of her daughters, spinning and weaving cloth, milking cows and making butter and the thousand and one things that fall to the lot of the farmer's wife in a new country. But I never remember of her going to a card party or a full dress ball. Well time passed on, the farm of 160 acres was all paid for and preparations made to build a new house when in the spring of 1864 my father sickened and died. Her family, consisting of 1 son and two daughters were all married but she carried on the farm for many years, but sold out at last and lived with her daughters, sometimes keeping house by herself for a time as the fancy took her. She was a remarkably smart and active woman long after she was 80 year old she could drive her own horse and hitch it up too if there was no one else handy to do it for her. Some years ago she heard of the forming of a society called the Daughters of American Revolution, and how every own daughter would be presented bythe government with a gold spoon. Her ambition was at once aroused to become a member and secure the spoon, not so much for the money value as what it represented, the hardships her father endured to help secure the nation's independence. Some five years ago she joined the chapter here in St. Clair and with their assistance obtained the spoon, which she prized very highly.She always took a lively interest in all that was going on in the world before her eyesight failed. Her health was always very good until three years ago she became quite feeble. On May 21st she had the misfortune to fall and fracture her hip but for that she would no doubt have lived a whole century, but it was not to be. She left us last Thursday, June 20th, 1907. She has gone to her reward and her works do follow her.Thus is closed the life of one devoted mother a useful member of the army of the west, she who lived before steam navigation was made a success, before telegraphy, railroads, trolley cars or automobiles were even thought of, when even matches and cook stoves were not in common use, and the house mother made with her own hands the ferments worn by the family, taking the wool from the sheep's back, carding, spinning, weaving, pressing and making the clothes that kept her family warm.
