Miller is the society’s program chairman, a member of the the Genealogical Society of West Fields and an “entertaining speaker,” according to Thena Rosahl, WHS Administrator.

John Henry Frazee was born in 1873 in a house where the town’s WWI monument stands today. According to Miller, this book conveys the feeling that Frazee enjoyed every minute of his long life in Westfield, from the pranks he played as a boy to learning masonry skills from his Uncle Milton. Other stories in the book tell of Westfield’s inns, its first church, the arrival of the railroad and even its first schools.

The book also contains a chart of Frazee’s noted family history, which includes his Aunt Betty Frazee of Revolutionary War fame.  

To reserve your place at the luncheon, call 908-233-2930.  The cost is $21 for members and $26 for non-members, including gratuity.
