    1785, married Abel Burdett, died April 6, 1866, in Lake City. Her
    husband died in Zumbro, this county, April 18, 1858. This couple dwelt
    many years in Grafton, Vermont, where was ushered into the world, July
    18, 1821, the person whose name heads this paragraph. During the early
    years of the latter, he spent some time at the common school, and
    subsequently managed the farm while his father dealt in stock. The
    farm was exchanged for hotel property, and Frank was his father's
    assistant in conducting the house for fourteen years. April 24, 1846,

    years in California, at mining and other occupations, with moderate
    success. Returning to Vermont in 1855, he took up a permanent
