Jacob FRANK was born in Frankfort, Herkimer county, in 1800. He came to Ashford in 1817, but soon returned, and came again in 1831, settling permanently on the farm now owned by Adam OYER. Mr. FRANK was a boatman on the Erie canal, and through him many emigrants were induced to settle in Ashford and vicinity. He married Margaret WEBER and had eleven children. In 1846 and 1847 he represented the town on the Board of Supervisors. The family has been a prominent and substantial one in the history of Ashford.
