FRANK EMERSON, a thriving dairy farmer of Section 23, Beaver Township, was born in Loyal Township, Clark County, Feb. 9, 1877, son of Andrew and Helen (Johnson) Emerson. He had worked on the home farm until he was 25 years old, at which time the farm was sold.

He was then married, March 23, 1904, to Emma Bruns, who was born in Colby, Wis., March 11, 1883, her father, Henry Bruns, being a carpenter of that place, to which he came from Sheboygan County, in 1877.

After his marriage Mr. Emerson bought eighty acres of land in Section 23, Beaver Township, the tract being a partly improved farm, on which he and his wife settled. Since then he has continued the improvements on it, building a thirteen room frame house and a barn 35 by 56 feet in dimensions, and is prosperously engaged in dairying, also keeping hogs. He is a member of the Lynn Mutual Fire Insurance Company.
