Birth: 1830

From "Armstrong County, Her People, Past and Present," J.H. Beers Co., 1914, pp. 176-717. Biography of J.H. Ambrose, a son of Frank and Rebecca (Dougherty) Ambrose:

"Frank Ambrose was born in 1830, in Westmoreland county, Pa., and at an early date his parents brought him to East Franklin township, this county. His wife was born in 1832 in Washington county, Pa. They had a family of ten children, eight of whom are still living. The father died Feb. 2, 1906, the mother in 1888. In political faith Mr. Ambrose was a Republican. He was a man of good common sense, and the common school training he received was well supplemented by his experiences in life."
