Frank B. Palmer was the son of Benjamin Franklin Palmer and Julia Ann (Frazier) Palmer. He had one sister, June Mary (Palmer) Goff and several half-siblings - Karl Taylor Holliday, Ross Adams Holliday, Ernest Frazer Holliday, Violet Mary (Palmer) Roby, Victor Hugo Palmer, Vallie Mae (Palmer) Miller, Fred Lynn Palmer, and John Mason Palmer.

Frank grew up living in Frankfort, Clinton County, Indiana. His father had died before he was three years old. In 1910, when he was fifteen years old, he held a job at the Frankfort Times as an apprentice printer. In 1917 he enlisted in the US Navy and served aboard the USS Nebraska.

In about 1926, he moved to Toledo, Ohio and worked as a linotype man in the composing room of the Toledo Blade, where he worked until his retirement in 1962. He was a member of the Toledo Progressive Club I.T.U., the Blade Times Chapel Welfare Foundation, and the Toledo Typographical Union #63.

He was a quiet man who liked to read and was well versed in world affairs. He died in his home, of a heart attack.
