Notes for John FRAME

Biographical Sketch (1881):68, p. 252-253. "What is known as the Frame graveyard is situated about a quarter mile southwest of Union Chapel. July 16, 1816 the infant daughter of John and Polly Frame died, and there being no graveyard in the neighborhood it was though best to bury the child near the house. Accordingly Silas, the brother of John, and father of Daniel Frame, dug a grave in a secluded spot a short distance northwest of the house. When the little procession of relatives started for the place of burial, it was with the utmost difficulty that they could find the grave, so thick was the heavy growth of bushes. A plain freestone slab now marks the little grave, which, in the course of time, has been surrounded by the silent inhabitants of the silent city that has grown about the lonely grave of the wilderness. Here are buried: Jeremiah Frame, December 9, 1828, aged seventy-six; his wife, Elizabeth, December 9, 1828 [sic] aged eighty-eight; Isham Lanier, January 2, 1823, aged sixty-six; John Frame, September 26, 1828, aged forty-four; Polly Frame, December 30, 1840, aged thirty-nine; Silas Frame, October 2, 1864" and others. This graveyard is located in Jackson Township."
