Our father, Frank Hartman, was born on March 7, 1877 at Monterey, Indiana. His father was born in Germany and was brought to this country at the age of three. His mother came from Pennsylvania and was of French descent.
There were five brothers, Albert, William, Edward, Charles, and Harry; and two sisters, Jennie and Nellie.

a shoe shine boy and newspaper vendor.
Later he learned the barber trade and set up shop in his home town. He married our mother, Emma Kelsey, daughter of Dr. William Kelsey, in St. Anne's Catholic Church in January of 1905.
