This is a portrait of John Frazier who, with a few
other English traders on the upper Allegheny river in 1752, were
visited by friendly local natives that appreciated his skill at
metal repair. By mid-1753 the French had taken his cabin in Venango
and he fled to Turtle Creek near the Monongahela River. His cabin
there was visited by young George Washington in 1753 and 1754.
