FRANK M. CONNER ATTORNEY, IS DEAD

Frank M. Conner, 67 years old, attorney-at-law and former justice of the peace, died at his home, 317 North Eighteenth Street Tuesday morning after a long illness. Death was due to cancer. Mr. Conner was born in Green's Fork, IN 1858. At an early age he removed with his parents to Cass county, where he grew to manhood. He received his education in the schools of Cass county and at the Indiana State Normal school at Terre Haute.

For several years Mr. Conner taught school in both Cass and Wayne counties.

He came to Richmond in 1888 and in 1891 began the study of law with the firm of Jackson and Starr. After completing his studies he was admitted to the Wayne county bar and for several years was actively engaged in the practice of law.

He served as justice of the peace for several years. Mr. Conner was not married. He is survived by one brother, W.W. Conner of Hemlock; and three sisters; Mrs. W.R. Berry and Mrs. A.J. Shaffer of Logansport and Mrs. Albert E. Foster of this city.

According to his nephew, Albert J. Foster:
"Frank had a mole on his chest that turned into cancer. It was a huge open sore and so painful that he kept a pistol under his bed in case he could no longer stand the pain. However, he endured the pain until the cancer took his life."
