David W. Frampton, Jr. is my 2nd cousin 4 times removed. He is the son of David Frampton, Sr. and Clara Beams. He married Ruth H. Delebar about 1890. They had four sons, Peyton G., Lt. Charles Edward, David W., and John M.
David’s obituary states that he had served as a district judge in Huntington. Sadly, at the age of 80 yrs. 6 mos. 22 days, it wasn’t illness that took David Frampton, but being hit by a vehicle. His death certificate states that he suffered a fractured skull, fracture of both legs below the knees, a “mashed & crushed” right hand and that he died on route to the hospital.
At the time of his death David, in spite of his age, was working as a Guard at the Huntington Tent & Awning Co.
Here’s my transcription of the obituary.
