With the passing away of the aged, especially to those who have reached such a ripe old age as the subject of the memoir, there is an added signifigance to the biography. Things which to many of us are matters of historical interest were matters of personal experience to them.

Mr. Joseph Frost was born in Norfolk Co., Province of Ontario, March 12,1812, and died on Wednesday morning, April 26, 1899, aged 87 years, 1 month and 14 days. During the period be lived in Canada he was honored with the position of constable and bailiff of Middleton for 22 years. By his first marriage to Miss Kate Cohor one son George was born who resides in Iowa. By his second marriage to Miss Jane Downs, three children were born, Mary who preceded her father to the "home over there." Wilmot, with whom he has lived for many years and Walter, also a resident of Grant county. Some two years ago Mr. Frost suffered a stroke of paralysis, since which time he has been denied active service and has been a member of the "shut-in" society. He was kindly cared for by his children and grandchildren and testified just an hour before his death of the kindness he had received at their hands. The funeral services were conducted at the home of his son on Friday last by Rev. T. J. Brown and a vast concourse of friends gathered at the home to pay the last tribute of respect to the honored resident and lay him to rest. Thus one by one they are being gathered to their rest.
