"ALKALI FRANK" IS DEAD
Frank Huott, Pioneer of The Dalles, Dies at Ripe Old Age.
Frank Huott, a pioneer of The Dalles, died last night at his home in this city, 169 North Twenty-second street. He would have been 87 years of age on November 17, and was born in Quebec.
Mr. Huott came to Oregon in 1856, and settled near Canyon City. Far and wide among the pioneers he was known as "Alkali Frank," for the reason that he was one of the first settlers on Alkali Flat. For more than 30 years he kept an inn near The Dalles.
In 1905 Mr. Huott removed to this city, where he had since resided. He is survived by his widow, four daughters and one son, Frank E. Huott, of this city. The daughters are: Mrs. W. J. Wright, of Ketchikan, Alaska; Mrs. C. D. Fardher, of Dufur, Or.; Mrs. A. M. Hawkins and Mrs. Frank Loveland, of this city. All of the children were present at his bedside.
