William Frank was born in Wurtemburg
Germany, May 8, 1818; he is the eldest of seven children, of whom
five are still living-William, Hannah, John, Louisa, and Christina.
At the age of twenty-eight, William came to this country, landing at
New York, going straight to Washtenaw County, Mich.; he lived there
some seven years, when he came to Lake County, and has lived here
ever since. In 1863, he bought his present place, one-half mile
south of Hobart, but he lived
one-half mile east of it until about
1870, when he moved upon it. He was married in 1851 to Selinda Kern,
in Washtenaw County, Mich. She has given birth to six
children-Moses, Peter, John, Frederick, David and Jacob. The oldest
and youngest are dead. Mr. Frank has always been a good, honest
farmer, and has always endeavored to act the part of a true citizen.
He now lives on his very fine farm, one-half mile south of Hobart.
