Last week I posted this picture of the Frazier cabin on Frazier Mountain in Greene County, Virginia.

When I was looking through my Frazier files, I spied this next photo which was sent to me by John and Janet Thompson hoping I could help identify the people.
The white-bearded man is Henry Timber Frazier, John Thompson’s great-grandfather and my 1st cousin 4 times removed. Henry Timber was the son of Miley Frazier who once owned 1000 acres on this mountain, and grandson of John and Lucy Frazier. I’ve been unable to identify the others in the picture, but probably it’s one of Henry Timber’s sons and his wife and children OR a daughter and her husband and children. Or not.
As much as I’d like to be able to identify these people, I am drawn to the building. Doesn’t it look like the ruin in the previous picture? I think so. It seems too small to have been a house, so maybe it was a shed or smokehouse or other outbuilding. Whatever it is, I’m excited to see this family on their own land before it was taken by the government to establish the Skyline Drive.
