THE WESTERN STAR, 8 November 1918

The news reached this county last week of the death of Frank Huffmaster, son of Mr. and Mrs. R. Huffmaster, who were among the early settlers in this county and who were well known here. A few years ago the Huffmaster family moved to Louisiana, where they still live. The news of Frank's death will be received with surprise and sadness here as he was a well known and highly respected young man here for many years. We are indebted to Mrs. Lewis Gray of Flesburg, Kansas, a sister of the deceased, for the following obituary notice:

Frank Huffmaster was born in Peoria county, Illinois, on October 22, 1881, and died near Bolivia, La., on October 28, 1918, aged 37 years and 6 days. At the age of five years he moved with his parents to No Man's Land, or what is now Beaver county, Oklahoma. The family lived there a short time, then moved to Comanche county, Kansas, where Frank grew to
manhood. He received his education in the Coldwater schools. He was of a very quiet disposition and always a great boy for home. All his acquaintances were his friends because he always had a kind word for everybody.

He moved to Louisiana about six years ago and there he resided until the 11th of October, when the Nation called him to serve his country. It was when he went to be examined that he was in a rain and got wet and took a severe cold which developed into influenza and pneumonia and, notwithstanding all that the doctor could do or the loving care of his mother and sister, who watched over him day and night, God claimed him and relieved him of his suffering. He leaves to mourn his death, father and mother, two brothers and three sisters. His father and mother and Albert and Ella live in Louisiana, Charlie Huffmaster and Mrs. Anna Gary, live at Feisburg, Kansas and Mrs. Belle Woodworth lives neat Potter, Nebraska.
