Fred was the third of six children born to Daniel and Hannah (Philbrick) Austin.

When Fred was eight, his father served in the Civil War-- from December 22, 1863 until April 5, 1865. Hannah died on December 12, 1867. Online sources indicate that Daniel married two more times.

It is not clear how some of the Austins ended up in the Leeds/Greene area, which is about 100 miles from Parkman. Fred's grandparents had married in Greene in 1811. Daniel died in Lewiston in 1884. In 1885 Fred's younger brother Jessie married Abbie Caswell, the daughter of Oliver and Abigail Caswell, buried in this cemetery.

In 1900 he was employed as a farm laborer for Arthur and Grace Fish in Greene. That year he was single and 45 years old.

Fred married on May 14, 1901 in Gorham, New Hampshire. His wife, called Lizzie, was born Elizabeth A. Pullen. She divorced her first husband David H. Elliot, by whom she had three children. Her second husband, Albert Senate, died about three months before Lizzie married Fred.

Lizzie and Fred lived in Leeds on his farm, directly south of this cemetery, very close to the border to Greene. In the 1920 census their household included their granddaughter, 6-year-old Lizzie "Austin." This was the daughter of Charles Elliott. She is also listed as living with her father that year. It is likely the granddaughter was there for a visit.
