Another Nebraska Pioneer Answers Final Call
Mr. Frank P. Burns was born on August 5, 1854, near Union, West Virginia.
While a child his parents moved to Ill., where he grew to manhood. In 1888 he moved to Frontier County, Nebr., where located on a homestead.
In 1879, on Oct. 9 he married Ida E. Fair. To this union were born four children, two boys having preceded him into the great beyond.
In 1920 he and his wife moved to Grant, where they have since resided.
He accepted Christ as his savior and joined the Church of United Brethren in 1892. He was always a noble, devoted Christian. While at Grant he took a great interest in a little country Sunday school in his community. He enjoyed studying the Word of God, and telling it to others. His presence will be greatly missed in this Sunday school.
Mr. Burn’s health began to fail in Sept., 1924, but it was not until the beginning of the new year the real cause, cancer of the stomach, was discovered, then it was too late. All that loving hands could do was done for him, and his Savior called him in the morning of March 4, 1925.
He leaves to mourn his passing, his wife, Ida E. Burns, his daughter, Mrs. A. G. Bisener, and family of North Platte, and Ira A. Burns and family of Grant, besides many friends. He will be greatly missed in his home and community, for to know him was to love him.
Following short services which were held at his home near Grant, the remains were shipeed to Farnam where funeral services were held from the M.E. church Friday afternoon, and Interment was made in the Farnam Cemetery. The Services were conducted by Rev. G. L. Wick, pastor of the M. E. Church at Maywood.
The Echo extends heartfelt sympathy to the sorrowing family in this dark hour of death.
