FRANK CLINTON EBERHARDT
Frank Clinton Eberhardt, eldest of John and Mary Eberhardt's family of nine children, was born at Alton, Iowa, April 27, 1868, and passed away at his home in Wichita, Kansas, August 3, 1945, being 77 years, 3 months and 6 days of age.
His parents moved to Kansas when he was a small boy, homesteading northeast of Glasco, where he grew to young manhood.
All his life was spent in Kansas. Frank had a generous, friendly nature, which made for him many friends in the various communities in which he resided. He had the happy faculty of never really growing old, and occupied himself as a tree surgeon almost to the last.
He had a severe heart attack July 5, but seemed so much better, his death was a great shock.
Those who mourn his passing are his wife Maude Eberhardt, daughters, Mary Williams of Wichita, and Betty Fraley, Des Moines, Iowa; sons, John, Jess and Henry of Oklahoma, Chester of Lons (maybe Lyons?) Kansas, S-Sgt. Clayton of the U.S. Army, overseas; Bobby of Wichita, and Billy of Hutchinson; six step-children, twenty-one grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren; also his sisters, Mrs. Lizzie Aikin and Mrs. Ad Rogers, and brothers, Bert, Val, and J.H. of Glasco, and Walter of Kansas City, Kansas.
A small daughter, Katie, died when they lived at La Harpe, and a son, Eddie, was killed in an auto accident and is also buried at that place.
Comforting services were conducted by Rev. Johnson, at Broad Mortuary, Wichita, August 6. A male quartet, composed of distant relatives of the deceased, sang "In That Land Where We'll Never Grow Old," and "The City Four Square." Interment was in the beautiful Wichita Park cemetery.
