ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

FRINK, Albert Berry (d. 1903)

News was received here Saturday afternoon announcing the death of Mr. Albert Berry FRINK at his home in Tampa.  He died Wednesday and was buried Thursday afternoon, Rev. C.H. NASH officiating.

Mrs. FRINK, who was before her marriage three years ago, Miss Julia WELLS, was here on a visit and did not know that her husband was even seriously ill until the news reached here Saturday.  Mr. FRINK had been an invalid for a long time and Mrs. FRINK left him with his mother at Tampla, while she came to Ocala on a business visit.

She is prostrated with grief and is at a loss to understand why she was not sent for before her husband’s death. We extend our sympathies to Mrs. FRINK in her great trouble.
