This was copied from page 44 of the private published book titled, “My Burnap Family” by Zola Burnap Irwin. Published in 1980.

William and Mary Burnap were in both Wallowa and Union County. The family moved to Touchet in Walla Walla County in 1892. Eugene and Asel returned to Joseph in 1887.

Ocie Vaun Frakes was born in Lamar, Mo., April 11, 1885 and died in Walla Walla, Wn. September 21, 1912. She was married to James H. Frakes April 26, 1904. She leaves to mourn in deepest sorrow a faithful and devoted husband, two small children, a widowed mother, four brothers and a sister.

Last May she suffered a slight stoke of apoplexy, resulting in cerebral hemorrhage from which she never fully recovered, and the enfeebled condition of her reduced physical system by her long illness was unable to withstand a second attack, and loving friends and best medical aid were alike unsuccessful to repulse the fatal ending.

Interment was in the Touchet Cemetary, services by Elder J.T. Barnes, assisted by Undertaker Hennessey of Walla Walla.

The honorary pallbearers were Mrs. Lizzie White and Mrs F.M. Lowden of Walla Walla, Mrs. A. Cornell of Lowden, Mrs. Nellie Cummins, Mrs L.D. Payne, and Mrs. Lizzie Layman of Touchet. Mrs frakes was the youngest of her father’s family; the beloved parent preceded her in death only a few months previous. she came to Touchet in early childhood and was reared among the youthful schoolmates who attended the last sad rites….
