Frank H. Edwards.

Frank H. Edwards, who is successfully following agricultural pursuits on section 19, Richland township, is a native of that township, born January 3, 1871, and is a son of David and Emily (Maxwell) Edwards.  An extended sketch of the father's life with his portrait appears elsewhere in this work.

Frank H. Edwards was reared under the parental roof and at the usual age entered the district schools, where he acquired his education.  After reaching mature years he  continued to reside at home and assisted his father in the latter's extensive farming operations.  Following his marriage in 1902 our subject removed to his present farm which was deeded to him by his father the year before.  He continued to reside upon that place until 1912, when he removed to Saskatchewan, Canada, where he had previously purchased a half section of land eighteen miles from Moosejaw.  However, he remained upon his Canada farm for but one year, after which he returned to Adair county, where he has since resided.  He is one of the representative farmers of Richland township and his labors return him a gratifying annual income.

On the 1st of January, 1902, Mr. Edwards was married to Miss Clara McKee, a daughter of William McKee, one of the well known residents of Massena, Cass county.  To this union have been born three children, two of whom survive, namely, Glenn M. and Lawrence E.

Mr. Edwards is a republican in his political belief and takes the interest of a good citizen in everything relating to the public welfare.  He has made many friends in this county, where he has lived for the greater part of his life, and he is a valued resident of his township.
