Biographical data
Name: Fraser, George Brunton  
Born: 1831
Died: 1 Dec. 1905
 
Notes:
Gaige gives birth between 2-12-1830 and 1-12-1831. Hooper and Whyld (1st ed.) give birth year 'c1831' and give 1831 in the 2nd edition. Spinrad has a 'Fraser' in a match with Kolisch in 1860. Is it J.C. Fraser, G.B. Fraser, or another? The Chess Player's Magazine of Dec. 1866 (p.384) has 'J.B. Fraser' in error.
