The following court records are from Madison County, Missouri filed in 1847 and filed as State of Missouri vs Jason Frizzell. Because of the date I’m going to assume this is Jason Frizzell born in 1815 (Thomas Frizzell’s son). The other names listed were Needham Frizzell, John Smith, Jr and David Johnson. I’ll transcribe what Page 2 reads below:
