 Includes NotesNotes for Royal Edward Frazier:
He was named after a friend or relative (not a Frazier) who had a farm. The person may have spelled it differently. A Royall Orcutt appeared in NY State Social Security Death benefit records. He was a butcher when he was younger. Was in the army for three years, and stationed overseas.

He was "Duke" to everyone. His wife, Helen, said he was called that because he was always getting into fights. Marguerite Searles, who lived in his father's home from time to time says the name was much older, and because of his mother. His mom was infatuated with England's royalty, particularly Duke Edward who abdicated the throne of England so he could marry a common woman. This is why he was named Royal Edward. His mother called him "Duke" . His 1956 yearbook has his nickname as "Duke".
