Civil War Horse Frank, of the 12th Ohio Cavalry, died Sept 11, 1886 at age 28. His obituary made the Bucyrus Journal. Frank died about the time of a Veterans reunion in Bucyrus. The men of the Keller and Leith Posts of the G.A.R. took old Frank out to the farm of Capt Harter and buried him there. They took up a collection and placed a large granite monument on his grave.
At Veterans reunions, when the bugle sounded calls, Frank would trot up to the flag, still ready for battle...Frank is also said to have accompanied his rider, Abe Conger, into a local tavern in Nevada, Ohio.
