John D. Frazier, of Burlington, lawyer and the county attorney of Coffey county, was born in Clinton county, Ohio, Sept. 6, 1845. His father, William C. Frazier, was born, reared and educated in Ohio. His mother, Minerva J. Hill, was descended from an old Virginia family. Her parents moved to Indiana at an early day. Mr. Frazier was a farmer and bricklayer by trade. He moved to Indiana in 1855 and lived there until his death in 1895.

John Frazier was educated in the common schools of his native state and then attended the academy at Frankfort. After finishing his education he taught school. During the Civil war he served in the Thirtieth Indiana infantry and fought in the battles of Franklin and Nashville. At the close of the war he decided upon a professional career and entered an academy at Frankfort, where he graduated in 1870. He then entered the University of Michigan where he was graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Laws in the class of 1872. The next year he came to Kansas and located in Coffey county, but about two years later returned to Indiana and opened a law office at Michigantown, where he remained until 1881. Mr. Frazier settled at Burlington on his return to the Sunflower State and has engaged in the practice of his profession ever since. He immediately began to take part in the political life of Burlington and though a Democrat was elected county attorney and in 1910 was again elected to that office. His district is strongly Republican but when he was a candidate for probate judge was only beaten by five votes. Mr. Frazier is a popular member of the bar and has made many warm friends. He has a large and lucrative practice and owns a farm south of Burlington.

In 1875 he married Martha J., daughter of George Kent, who was born in Connecticut. He immigrated to Indiana at an early day and cleared a farm in the wilderness. Three daughters have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Frazier. Mr. Frazier is progessive in his ideas and believes in a broad and liberal education. He has sent all three of his children to Baker University, Baldwin, Kan., where they graduated with credit. One daughter is married and the others are teachers. The family are members of the Methodist Episcopal church.
