Short Biography

     He was born at 64 North Road, Preston, Lancashire on Saturday 18 July 1846 and was baptized at St. John five weeks later.
At the age of 5 he was living with his parents and sisters Ann, Lizzie, Emma and Patty at 13 Great Shaw Street, Preston.

Later they moved to 35 New Row, Preston, Lancashire by the time he was 14 years old. He was already working as a clerk in a cotton mill. By the time he was 21 he was living at 59 Warwick Street, in Greenheys, and was working as a warehouseman.

He married Sarah Rowe, daughter of Henry Rowe, at Manchester Cathedral on Saturday 21 September 1867 at Manchester. They had a son soon after, their only child.

On 11 August 1873 Frederick and his partner Robert Clark dissolved their mat and matting manufacturers business. Frederick and his wife emmigrated to the USA from England circa 1879.

In 1880 they were living in Pennsylvania and he was working as a mat manufacturer.

Frederick's wife evidently died because he married a woman called Rose in 1890. By 1895 they had moved to Indiana where they spent the rest of their lives. Tragedy struck - their son, a doctor, died in his early twenties.

Frederick died in July 1932 at Indiana. His body was interred at Crown Hill Cemetery on 28 July 1932 at Indianapolis, Indiana. He is buried in the same plot as his wife.
