Biographical Sketch (1882):63, p. 393-394. "Younger Frame, son of John and Ufa (Peak) Frame, was born in Preble County, Ohio, January 1, 1832; his father was born in Kentucky in 1804, and came to Preble County when quite young; his mother was born in Ohio in 1810, and lived there till after her marriage. In 1835, they emigrated to Michigan City, La Porte County, where Mr. Frame followed the coopering business. In 1849, they came to Porter County, settling in Pine Township, when his mother died December 29, 1860, and his father February 29, 1872. Younger Frame lived with his parents until twenty-nine years old. After receiving an ordinary school education, he learned his father’s trade, but has worked much more at farming, having now 212 acres in this and La Porte Counties. On February 28, 1861, he was married to Maria L. Weston, a daughter of Isaac and Louisa (Randall) Weston, and born March 7, 1839; her parents were early settlers of La Porte County. They have had three children — Hattie E., Cary J., and Chauncey B. During 1881-82, Mr. Frame has built a cheese factory, the only one in the township. When he first came hither, his farm was a wilderness, necessitating clearing and the building of a log cabin; he has now good improvements and seventy-five acres under cultivation. Mr. Frame is a Democrat, but liberal in local government."

Biographical Sketch (1912):47, v. 2, p. 838-839. "Younger Frame. The agricultural community of Pine township, Porter county, Indiana, includes among is oldest and most respected families that of Younger Frame, who is located on section thirty-six, the farm containing one hundred and eleven acres of fine land. The Frame family was originally from Kentucky, in which state Younger’s grandparents, William and Elizabeth Frame, were born.

Younger Frame is a native of Preble county, Ohio, where he was born January 1, 1832, the son of John Frame, born in 1804, and Eupha (Peak) Frame, born in 1810. The senior Frame removed with his family to Michigan City in 1835 and remained a resident of that place until 1849, when he located in Pine township, Porter county. He was a man of fine character and exemplary habits, a devout member of the Baptist church and a leader in its activities, and was also a valued member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows.

Younger Frame was a member of a family of nine children, few of whom survive at this writing. His oldest brother, Francis P., deceased, was a veteran of the Civil War; his sister Nancy, deceased, was the wife of Ethan Stephens; Lucinda, who married George Shaner, and a brother, John, are deceased. The next brother, William, married Mary Anderson and lives in Chicago. Martin, deceased, a soldier in the Civil War, married Elizabeth Goodwin, and Edwin, deceased, was married to Anna Pratt.

A good common school education was acquired by Younger Frame in the schools at Michigan City, and when at the age of seventeen he went with the family to Porter county, Indiana, he at once put his shoulder to the wheel and became his father’s able assistant in agricultural activities on the home farm, continuing to be a member of the parental household for twelve years thereafter. He was a faithful, thrifty, and industrious and when his decision was made to establish an independent home of his own he was in good financial condition to make a fine start.

His marriage to Maria L. Weston occurred February 28, 1861. Mrs. Frame is the daughter of Isaac Weston and Louisa (Randall) Weston. Her father, who was originally from Massachusetts, later became a resident of Ohio, and in Butler county of that state was married to Louisa Randall, who was born and reared in Virginia, but resided at Hamilton, Ohio, at the time of her marriage. Mrs. and Mrs. Weston settled in La Porte county, Indiana, in 1832, took up a tract of Government land, cleared and improved it and continued to make that place their home the remainder of their lives. Mr. Weston was the first postmaster of Otis, then known as Salem Crossing, and also enjoyed the distinction of having built the first hotel at that point. Of the four children of this family Cary fought in the Civil War as a member of the Seventy-third Indiana Volunteers and was a martyr to the cause in the battle at Stone River; Ann J. became the wife of S. C. Hackett; Mary is the widow of John Wolford; while Maria L., as previously stated, is the wife of Younger Frame. Mrs. Frame owns a hundred acre parcel of land in La Porte county. She is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church at Burdick and is a woman of fine character and hospitable instincts.

Mr. and Mrs. Frame are the parents of three children. Hattie is now the wife of Charles Leets, of La Porte county, Indiana. Cary is married to Elizabeth Paxton, of Michigan City; and Chauncey B. choose Pauline Sackman as his wife. Mr. Frame takes a prominent part in township official life and has had the honor of filling the office of township assessor, discharging his duties in a highly creditable manner in that capacity. His political tendencies are toward the Democratic party, in the principles of which he is a hearty believer and a strong advocate. Mr. and Mrs. Frame are esteemed as among the most liberal and substantial members of the community in which they reside and enjoy the sincere friendship of a large number of people who appreciate their many fine personal qualities."
