He was a member of the G. A. R., an organization that is swiftly passing and which will soon be remembered only by historic records.
Surely, anyone born in and living thru such historic eras, as Mr. Frentress has, confronted many difficult and trying obstacles, which only the most faithful can overcome, and truly it can be said that he has proven himself, not only a good soldier in war, but also a good soldier in the greatest of all battles - "Life's Battle".
Mr. Frentress was converted and joined the M.E.

He will not only be sadly missed by relatives but also by his many friends who he heartily welcomed at his home at any time.
He leaves to mourn his passing his wife, three children, six grandchildren and eight great grandchildren and a multitude of friends.
