Biographies JAMES FRAME, of Dallas Township, is a native of Preble County, Ohio, born near Eaton, April 19, 1828, being the fourth in a family of nine children born to Silas and
Polly (Strader) Frame, natives of Bourbon County, Ky., and Burke County, Pa., respectively. They always remained residents of Ohio until their death, living upon the
same farm which is and has been in the possession of the Frame family for three generations. Our immediate subject was reared in his native State and county, remaining
at home and assisting his parents on the farm until he attained the age of twenty-four years, receiving a very limited education in the primitive log school houses of those days.
February, 1853, he emigrated to Indiana, first locating in the vicinity of Marion, Grant County, where he remained until the winter of 1855. During the time he was there he
purchased a saw-mill and stone quarry, burning the first lime made in that vicinity. He subsequently disposed of his interest to parties who eventually beat him out of the entire consideration for the property, when he removed to Huntington County engaging as clerk for the firm of Frame & Brawley at Warren, with whom he continued nearly three years, after which he entered the employ of Myran Smith & Co., serving them three years, when, in 1860 he, in company with John Alexander and Reason Emery, under the firm name of Frame, Emery & Co., embarked in the mercantile trade at Huntington. About two years later he disposed of his interest, trading it for the farm on which he has since lived. October 30, 1853, his marriage with Mary A. Ammerman was solemnized, and to their union two children were born, of whom neither she nor either of the children survive, she dying November 28, 1878, at the age of forty-four years. The children were named Abner D., who died at the age of twenty years, September 18, 1874, and William A., who died February 17, 1858, at the age of about five months. August 18, 1880, his marriage with Margaret J. Harden was celebrated, and their union has been blessed with this one child, Ella B., born June 13, 1886. Since 1862 he has made farming his occupation and he has been very successful. He now owns 100 acres of well improved land. He is a member of the Christian, his wife of the Methodist Episcopal Church. He also belongs to the Masonic fraternity. In politics he is a Democrat.
