Have not been able to get back past Fraser Brindley as the spelling however the older records spelled his last name as Prayzar, Brendley, Brinley. Over the years, some welling meaning people posted a lot of data about Fraser, which has proven not to be correct. We do have Dna, on his family line but have found no connection prior to Fraser. Some have written he was related to Brinlee's and Brinley's however Dna has shown this is not correct although some spelling have him listed as Brinlee, Brindley, Brindle, Brenlee. Thus we do not know the true last name of Fraser, or at least as to how he spelled his last name. After 40 years of research on this family, no one, nor records, have been able to provide his actual birth date, nor location, nor father or mother. While there has been a lot of guessing as to his brothers and father may have been, I have never seen any documents, that helps on this manner. The best change of solving this problem is with Dna. While Dna, has not provided his origin, it has provided that the the stories others have written as to his family line, have proven not to be correct. Please feel free to write me back.
