Eckersley, Frank M. – Obituary

Cove, Union County, Oregon

Another Gold Star on Cove’s Service Flag

Frank M. Eckersley, son of Mr. and Mrs. Otho Eckersley, was killed in action in France, Oct. 10. He was born at Cove, Oregon, Feb. 27, 1891, where he lived most of his life and has a host of friends. He also has many friends in Walla Walla and Portland, where he attended school.

Entered the service at Camp Lewis, June 25, 1918, and was a member of Co. G. 158th Inft., which helped to fill the incompleted regiment of the 91st division, and sailed for France two weeks after the main division.

As he only entered the service last June, his death in action comes as an especial shock to his parents, sisters, brother-who has since died- and many friends among whom he was a favorite for his unusual high ideals and strength of character.

Besides his parents he leaves three sisters, Mrs. E.B. Conklin, Ontario, Ore., Nellie Eckersley, secretary of Whitman Conservatory of Music, Walla Walla, and Harriet Eckersley, of Edwards Co., Portland. Also he was a cousin of Ralph E. Williams, a well known man of Portland.
