Frazier, who came to the area in 1883 and settled on a government homestead. Frazier drilled two wells by his home and struck water at just over 400 feet. Frazier soon decided his well water had remarkable curative powers over his chronic rheumatism. (Submitted on December 29, 2016, by Barry Swackhamer of San Jose, California.)
