Excerpt from A History of Jasper County and It's People by Joel Livingston. . . .
A practical and progressive agriculturist in the
early prime of life, Frank H. Royer is prosperously engaged in his independent vocation on one of the most pleasant and desirable estates in Union township, being proprietor of Grand View Stock Farm, which is finely located eight miles southeast of Carthage, in the midst of a rich agricultural region.

He was born in Union township, on the old Royer homestead, where his father, John Royer, settled on coming to Jasper county from Pennsylvania, his native state. John Royer was for several years a prominent farmer of Union township, having by dint of persevering labor improved a good homestead of two hundred and sixty acres.
He married Fanny Custard, who died many years ago. He passed to the life beyond in 1901, leaving four sons and one daughter, Mrs. William Spencer, of Union township. Brought up on the home farm, Frank H. Royer obtained his elementary education in the district schools, and was subsequently graduated from a business college.

Taking kindly to agricultural pursuits in the days of his youth, he succeeded to the occupation of his ancestors, and as a general farmer and stock raiser is meeting with genuine success. Grand View Farm, of which Mr. Royer is owner, contains one hundred and twenty-two acres of the best land in Jasper county, and with its modernly constructed residence, substantial barn, forty feet by forty-two feet, and its beautifully shaded lawns, invariably attracts the attention of the passer-by, and bears visible evidence of the good taste, ability and wise management of its proprietor.

Mr. Royer makes a specialty of raising fine horses, Percheron being his favorite breed, and he has one of the best coach horses in southwestern Missouri. He also
raises thoroughbred Jersey cattle and thoroughbred Cotswold sheep.

He has one of the best-growing young orchards in the vicinity, its five acres being set out with all kinds of fruits, and being highly productive. Mr. Royer married, on the 17th of January, 1896, Belle Wyatt, of Jasper county, Missouri, who prior to her marriage was a successful music teacher.

Mr. and Mrs. Royer are the parents of two children. In his political affiliations Mr. Royer is a Democrat, and fraternally he belongs to Parshley Lodge, No. 898, M. W. A. ; and to Parshley Lodge, No. 199, A. H. T. A.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Royer are members of the Missionary Baptist church, and Mrs. Royer is also a member of Union Court, No. 3036, Royal Neighbors.
