|Birth: ||Jan. 31, 1887|
Frank was the 4th of 4 children of Homer Elwell and Indiana Pyle.
He married on January 1, 1914, San Franciso, California, to Edith Augusta Lindstrom.
He registered for service in World War I on November 25, 1917, indicating he was a rancher in Riverside, California, and had a wife and child.
Frank was the owner of a very successful business, the Elwell Trolley Supply Company, which had its main office and factory in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
He died in the flu epidemic.
His stone is in the old part of the cemetery, pretty close to 13th Street 182 Section I. It is not kept up and has lots of thorny weeds.
A granddaughter relates of him:
"My grandfather had problems with his parents, who told him that he was born late in their lives and to take care of them in their old age and take over the orchard. He wanted to go to college, so in rebellion he ran away from home and became a cowboy, which horrified them. With his sister Olive's help he was allowed to go to college (Stanford & MIT), where he got degrees in engineering. They were probably happy with Olive's decision, because he became a millionaire during World War I."
