      (2) C. L. Frost :

      Laredo Tribune, Laredo, MO, February 28, 1923:

      John Frost died Tuesday evening at six o'clock at his home in the northwest part of Laredo, aged 72 years. Tuesday evening of last week "Uncle Jack" as he was familiarly called by his friends, went to the well at his home to get a bucket of water, going without his cane, and as he stepped on the ice covered walk his feet slipped out from under him and he fell, resulting in a fractured hip. Everything possible was done to relieve him, but on account of his advanced age and not well any way, could not withstand the shock and pain, and the end came at the close of the day and Uncle Jack passed to his reward.

      Mr. Frost and wife until a short time ago were the agents for the Kansas City Star and Times, and Post and Journal, but on account of Mr. Frost's failing health had to give up the Star and Times early in the fall, but kept the Post and Journal.

      John Frost was born December 21, 1850, in Ft Madison, Lee County, Iowa. He came to Missouri when a child and resided in this state all his life, except 18 months spent in Louisburg, Kansas. He was married to Nancy Morgan, Aug. 19, 1875. To this union was born six children, all living and are: Mary M. Cousins, Burlington, Des Moines County, IA; Maggie B. Robinson, Powersville, Mo.; Betty Ethel of Laredo; Mable A. Hart of Osgood; Charles Ira of Chico, Calif; Elsie Isaphine McNabb, Bingham Canyon, Utah.

      His early married life was spent in Powersville, when there was only three residents in the town, moving there to assist in the early construction of the Milwaukee railroad at that place. Later he spent ten years resided in Laredo.

      Uncle Jack united with the Methodist church at St. John when a very young man and lived according to his convictions, a Christian life. He was able to attend the M.E. revival, and gave an interesting testimony that will linger in the memory of the I.O.O.F. Lodge No. 542, Cleopatra, Mo., for a number of years. He leaves to mourn his death, a faithful companion, 6 children, 23 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren. Funeral services will be held at the Methodist church Friday afternoon at two o'clock; burial at Richardson cemetery east of town.
