"Athens Township, Feb 12 - Wayne Langworthy reports the death of E E Frost, 91, of Sinclairville, NY. The last of his family and son of Edwin and Clara Frost, E E Frost was reared on a farm northwest of Little Cooley. In youth he showed a flair for repairing watches, and that became his life's work. His first place of business is said to have been in Riceville. Later in life he had a shop in Union City, going from there into New York State. To anyone entering his workshop, the tick tock of the many clocks about the room was the sound of his trade. Mr Frost was buried in the Rose Hill Cemetery at Sparta beside his first wife Edna and his son, Ivan. A cousin, Roy Frost of Centerville, is the only known relative in this area of the late nonegenarian."
