"Frank A. Ball, residing at the city of Fargo, Cass county, came to his death at his home in that city on the 11th day of July, 1908, cut down at the very entrance upon the prime of his life, at the age of 34 years. His was the first death in a family of six, his father, mother, two brothers, W. M. Ball, residing now at Fargo, John G., residing now in St. Paul, and a sister, Mrs. C. A. Wheelock, residing now in Fargo. He was the son of Col. W. F. Ball, and Mary A. Ball, his wife, who for more than thirty years have resided in Fargo. He was born at Detroit, Becker county, Minnesota, where his parents then resided, on October 7th, 1873. He resided at home with his parents until his marriage in 1902. At that time he married Miss Corinne E. Carey, of Fargo, and until his death resided in Fargo, in a cottage close to the old homestead of his parents." ...

"In 1904, to gain a more independent experience, he severed that relation, and opened a law office of his own in Fargo, and entered upon the general practice of the law, the pursuit of which he continued uninterruptedly until his untimely death. At the time of his decease his business was a prosperous one, and was rapidly increasing, and his prospects were of the brightest.

"Mr. Ball was of somewhat fleshy habit, and, owing to defective eyesight, did not take very much exercise. His physical makeup, and his habits of life were such as to make him a fitting subject for apopletic troubles, strongly resembling his maternal grandfather [Algernon Merryweather], who died in the very prime of his life from that cause."
