push to enlarge.

Was born June 6, 1864, at Davenport, Iowa. Received tlie benefits of an excellent system of schools, supplementing a good common school education with a course at Davenport Academy. Came to Kansas in 1878, and on April 15, 1896, was united in marriage to Miss Mary Kolde, to which union three children were born: Adelaide, Theresa, and Frank. Mr. Frey has served the people of Newbury township one term as trustee and has been constable since he was old enough to vote, his excellent work in that office pointing him out as the right man for the office of sheriff of Wabaunsee county to which important office he was elected in 1899. Mr. Frey has proven himself a capable official. His metal has more than once been subjected to the crucial tests essential to secure a verdict of approval. He has served the people truly and well, and they seldom fail to mete out to the faithful
that reward to which they are justly entitled.


Was born in Sidney, Shelby county, Ohio, October 6, 1851. In 1875, went to Illinois. On September 15, 1872, was united in marriage to Miss Martha Carroll. Came to Kansas in 1887, locating at Alma, were he has since resided. Mr. Clayton is serving his ninth term as township trustee and his fifth term as a member of the city council of Alma excellent proof as to the degree of conlldence reposed in him as a public official.


He was the under Sheriff, he was a Stock Raiser. Little is known about him.  He had a home in Alma and was still Under Sheriff in 1901.


There is nothing said about him only that he was a Deputy Sheriff in 1899.
