FREASE, GEORGE, Napoleon, of Napoleon, O., was born in Somerset county, Pa., August 20, 1812, and was a son of JOHN and ELIZABETH FREASE, who settled in Summit county, O., where they died. GEORGE and HANNAH (Mrs. BRAY) came to Napoleon in 1843; JOHN and JACOB came in 1852; Mrs. CATHARINE RAFF in 1854 and B.F. in 1869. Six of the children now reside in Henry county [sic, this is how it is written but it appears this sentence and the previous should be reversed]. GEORGE was married in Summit county, O., in 1835, to ELIZABETH WILLARD. They have had a family of eight children, six of whom are now living: DANIEL W., WINFIELD, JOHN H., CLARINDA, CYNTHIA, SAMANTHA, CLARISSA and CELESTIA [sic]. Both died leaving families, three children each [sic]. GEORGE FREASE settled in Napoleon in 1843, and purchased his present homestead of 160 acres of State canal land at two dollars per acre. His farm is now highly cultivated and under fine improvement. He was engaged in surveying in early life but devotes his entire attention to farming.
