Notes for Leander A. FRAME

Biographical Sketch (1981):52, p. 873-875. "Leander A. Frame, a popular and prosperous farmer, of Jackson township, Preble county, Ohio, is the proprietor of the old Frame homestead, entered by his great-great-grandfather on October 28, 1816. No little distinction is attached to the ownership of a farm with which one’s family name has been connected ever since it was a wilderness and purchased from the government. Leander A. Frame obtained this farm, of one hundred and sixty acres, from his father, Daniel Frame, in 1900, who obtained it, in 1865, from his father, Silas Frame, he, in turn, obtaining it from Jeremiah Frame, who entered the land. Leander A. Frame and his wife and mother now own this farm.

Leander A. Frame was born on this farm on December 18, 1853, the son of Daniel and Hannah (Dillman Frame). Daniel Frame was the son of Silas and Pollie (Strador) Frame. Silas was the son of Jeremiah and Elizabeth Frame. Jeremiah Frame was a native of Virginia and a soldier under General Washington in the Revolutionary War. He was detailed to return to Washington’s plantation to oversee the farm work. After the war he moved to Kentucky, where he was a slaveholder in that state. He became disgusted with slavery and left his slaves and came to Ohio, locating on the farm where the subject lives. Here he built a log cabin and, all in all, entered eight other farms, none of which was less than a quarter of a section. He gave each of his nine children a farm. In his day Jeremiah Frame was a prominent man. He was a strict Presbyterian. Mr. Frame died in 1828, after having been in Ohio twelve years.

Silas Frame was the youngest son of Jeremiah, and received the old home place. This place passed from him to Daniel Frame, who was a public-spirited man of wide influence in his community. He was a member of the Christian church and a deacon in that church. Although possessed of a strong religious nature, Daniel Frame was broad-minded and liberal in thought. He was much interested in the public welfare of the community and contributed much to its common good. He was the father of two children: Leander A., the subject of this sketch, and Ella O., who became the wife of J. W. Brinley. She was born in 1859, married in 1882, and died in 1886.

Leander A. Frame was reared on the farm and received his education in the common schools of Jackson township. He attended school in the winter and worked on the farm during the summer time. He remained at home until twenty-eight years old. He has been a farmer throughout his whole life and was active in his vocation. He preferred Shorthorn cattle, Englishshire and road horses and good hogs. Mr. Frame’s horses were mostly native road horses. He was also interested in several imported horses. Mr. Frame is now retired.

Leander A. Frame married Laura Wolf, in February, 1882, from which union two children were born, Lawrence and Ella O. Lawrence was born in 1887 and died in 1908. Ella O. was born in April 28, 1891, and married Leland Campbell, of Campbellstown, Ohio. They have one daughter, Ramona, who was born on April 28, 1912. The first wife of Leander A. Frame died in 1894, and he married Eva Conley in 1895, she dying on October 12, 1912. He then married Mrs. Emma (Moss) Huffman, who was born in Union County, Indiana, April 26, 1861. She was educated in the common schools and lived in Eaton, Ohio.

Mr. and Mrs. Frame are members of the First Christian church, at Eaton, Ohio, he being a member of the official board and prominent in the work of that church. Mr. Frame is independent, preferring to cast his vote for able, honest, and efficient men, rather than for political parties. He is well known throughout Preble County and is popular in all classes of people. He deserves to rank as one of the representative citizens of the community where he lives."
