Obituary

Died July 11th, 1890, at the home of his brother, Gardner Ingraham, in the town of Rutland, Dane Co., Wis.,
Rev. Frank B. Ingraham, aged 30 years.

The deceased was a member in good standing of the Wisconsin conference, Free Methodist Church, having
been received into the conference on trial in the fall of 1887, and into full connection and ordained Deacon in
the fall of 1889.

Brother Ingraham's life was very exemplary, his conversation godly, and his integrity unyielding.  His ministerial
life though short was successful, he having made proof of his ministry.  He was respected by saint and sinner.

His last charge was in the northern part of the state, which, on account of failing health, he was compelled to
resign last April, when he came to the home of his brother, where he died as stated above.

His illness though protracted and severe, was borne with Christian meekness and resignation.  His father
preceded him not quite three weeks before.  The funeral was held at the house on Sunday, July 13th, at 10
a.m., Rev. J. A. Murray conducting the services, after which the remains were laid away in the cemetery at
Union Village, by the side of his mother and sister to await the resurrection morn.
