Burnett, Frank (21 Jun 1872 - 12 Apr
Frank Burnett died last Saturday morning
after an illness of several months duration and which was prolonged
for some weeks by the wonderful physical stamina of the sick
man. Frank was born to Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Burnett at Portage
on June 21, 1872, and came with his parents to Neillsville in 1880,
which city had ever since been his home. He was united in
marriage to Miss Jessa Scovill on Dec. 20. 1899. Frank, or
"Daisy" as he was familiarly known, took a keen interest in sports
and was one of the leading spirits in the several good teams which
represented this city years ago. Twenty-four years ago he
became associated with Co. A, and during that time he had always
been a faithful and efficient member, working his way from private
to 1st Lieut.,
and often commanding the company. To Daisy should be in a
great degree attributed the sustenance in the interest in military
affairs in this city.
Mr. Burnett is survived by his wife and
two children, brother C.M. Burnett of Eleva and sisters Mrs. F.
Darling of Montesno, Wash., Miss Helen Burnett and Mrs. H.F. Kern
of Duluth and Mrs. J.M. Davis of Black River Falls.
The funeral was held Monday afternoon and was a military burial. Rev. Prucia of Fairchild, preached the sermon and the funeral procession, headed by the Neillsville band, included Co. A and the Spanish War veterans. At the grave W.A. Campman spoke a few words in behalf of the Spanish War veterans, of which organization, Mr. Burnett was a member.
