Frank Clark Dies; Was Ill Long
Douglas Budget - December 7, 1922Frank Clark, resident of Converse county for thirty-seven years, died at his home in Douglas Monday afternoon, after a long illness. About two months ago his condition became grave and for several weeks it was known that recovery was impossible.
His death takes one more of the diminishing band of pioneers of Converse county. Mr. Clark came here in 1885, settling at Fort Fetterman. He moved from there to Sage creek, where he established a stock ranch, in which business he had continued until his death. he was born at Noblesville, Ind., February 18, 1861.
He was married to Mrs. Agnes Henry Higley, May 8, 1899, who survives him. Surviving also are five children, Mrs. Ross Grennell of Casper, Frances, Florence, Agnes and Catherine; a step-daughter Mrs. George Richter of Casper; his aged mother, five brothers and three sisters, residing at Glasgow, Kan.
A man of fine character was Frank Clark. Quiet, unassuming, industrious, he had during his long residence in Wyoming won and held the esteem and confidence of all who knew him. His passing is a distinct loss to the community.
Funeral services were held this afternoon at the Methodist church at 9:30 o'clock, Rev. R.M. Jones officiating. Burial was in Douglas cemetery.
