     FRANK H. DEARBORN, b. 1877, Sherman, Aroostook Co., Me., d. 1 Apr. 1899 Island Falls, Aroostook Co., Me.; m FLORA BELINDA PERRY on 26 Jun 1897 in Sherman. She was also known as Linnie and Tweet. She had been born on 12 Mar 1880 in Island Falls, Aroostook Co., and died in 1921 at Sherman. She was the daughter of ALBINUS PHILBRICK PERRY and DELIA A. MORRISON of Island Falls.

     Frank Dearborn was twenty when he and Linnie were married. In the spring of 1899 he had a job at a sawmill in southern Island Falls at a place named Cold Brook. He, Linnie and their 1 year old son Cleve were living in a boarding house not far from the sawmill. Linnie was 7 months pregnant with their second child. On the 1st of April Frank was killed in an accident at the mill. In the early 1970's, when I began my research I was told that Frank had been cut in half by one of the saws.

    After Frank's death Linnie moved in with her grandparents, Barnabas and Belinda Perry on the Hurricane Road in southern Island Falls. There, slightly less than two months later on the 28th of June Linnie gave birth to a daughter, she named Delia Frankie, after her mother Delia Morrison and Frank.

Flora Belinda Perry married (2) Alton Irish in 1901.
