Burnett, Frank (21 Jun 1872 - 12 Apr 1913) 

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.
