The grim reaper makes another call. Francis M. EDINGTON was called away Sunday morning, Feb. 19, at 4 o'clock to attend the perpetual gathering assembled in the great beyond. Frank, as familiarly known, was born Juy 15, 1850. He was one of a family of nine children. Four sisters survive him, a brother and three sisters having preceded him. His father died when Frank was but a child, leaving him to be the main stay to the family, thus it became his duty to toil while very young to sustain his widowed mother.

He was married to Docia H. MILLER Sept. 20, 1868. Their union was blessed with eight children. Two died in infancy. Surviving him are his wife, three sons, Melvin, Dodd and Charley, three daughters, Gorda, Edna and Georgia, also surviving him are twenty-seven grandchildren and fifteen great-grandchildren besides many friends. Friends to him and with him was all the term implies. He lived the Golden Rule and reaped a golden harvest of generous deeds set with diamonds of love, respect and appreciation. The world to Frank was a little world. He having spent seventy-five years of his life within the radius of a few miles. But he knew his little world, well and favorable and this little world knew him. He will not only be missed by the family but by all who know him.

Daddy's only resting now, no more the ax, the hoe, the plow, his task has been from sun til sun. His labor is ended, the day is done, no more the ax, the hoe, the plow, daddy's only resting now.February 23, 1928."
