William Frazier was a Scottish fur trader who visited Cadron Settlement on the Arkansas River shortly after its settlement. Frazier was then in the employ of Frederick Notrebe a wealthy Arkansas Post merchant who operated a lucrative trade in furs and pelts with resident Native American tribes. In 1810 Frazier visited the site to trade, and noted that his colleague John McElmurray had already established a prosperous trading post at the site, which was occupied by "not less than one hundred hunters, both whites and Indians."
