Varina in Henrico County, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
The Frayser Family
The Frayser family is listed among those who were charter members of nearby Four Mile Creek Baptist Church (est. 1781). Samuel Frayser (1787-1849), son of Jesse and Keziah, became a local potter. He was the ﬁrst potter to work at the Richard Randolph Manufactory, though he later operated independently. His salt-glazed stoneware is now sought after by collectors.
The Frayser family land is now divided among several subdivisions. The Frayser Cemetery located nearby is unmarked. Headstones listing the names of Jesse and Keziah Frayser are now located in the cemetery at Four Mile Creek Baptist Church.
