Bryant, Frank proprietor of the Lake Katherine Bungalows at Hazelhurst, was born at Albion, Mich., Aug. 30, 1861, son of Hiram and Julia (STURTEVANT) BRYANT, natives of England and New York State respectively, who were engaged in farming at Albion for many years. Frank assisted his father in the operation of the home farm for some years and then engaged in the lumber industry, working in the woods and on the drives down the rivers and becoming a foreman in this work before reaching the age of 20 years. When he was 21 years old he established himself in business in Mecosta County, Michigan, and in 1901 he went from there to Rhinelander, being engaged in business at the latter city from then until 1915. In June, 1915, he came to Hazelhurst and erected his present property, the Lake Katherine Bungalows. Besides conducting these he operates an up-to-date ice cream and soft drink parlor and carries a complete line of fishing supplies. He is a member of Rhinelander Lodge No. 598 of the Elks and of the Mecosta, Mich., lodge of the Knights of Pythias. He is very popular in the community about Hazelhurst, and is well-liked by all. Mr. Bryant was first married on Aug. 20, 1881, to Miss Josephine HARDING, who died on Feb. 1, 1913, leaving two children, Ross E., who is now in the employ of C.A. ROBERTS at Chicago, and Mabel, who is Mrs. J. S. DEXTER of St. Louis, Mo. Mr. BRYANT was united with his present wife on Nov. 20, 1913; in maiden life she was Miss Mary CAPPEL, and at the time of her marriage to Mr. BRYANT she was Mrs. Mary FRANK.
