Pueblo County, Colorado
Harry C. Frink
Contributed by Jean Griesan.
Among the progressive young men of Pueblo County who are turning their attention to the breeding and raising of stock is Mr. Frink, whose ranch is near Rye. He was born in Pueblo, May 21, 1869, and is a representative of one of the honored pioneer families of the county, being a son of Alonzo and Jane (Convers) Frink. His father was a soldier of the Civil war, a member of the Second Iowa Infantry, and remained in the service until hostilities ceased. He died leaving six children, two sons and four daughters, namely: James A., a farmer and stockman of Montezuma Valley, Colo.; Jane (twin of James A.), the wife of C. W. Walters, who lives seven miles from Rye; Harry C., our subject; Hattie C. (twin of Harry C.), the wife of John Thomas, a merchant of Rye, whose sketch appears on another page of this volume; Mrs. George Haynes; and Helen C., wife of Clayton Colvin, who resides in Colorado Springs, and whose husband is a railroad man. The mother is still living and is now the wife of John G. Austin, whose sketch may also be found in this volume.
Our subject was only six weeks old when his parents removed to the ranch where he now resides, and he was educated in the schools of the district. Although he has traveled quite extensively over Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and other parts of the country, he has always made his home here, and since attaining to man's estate has successfully managed the farm, which comprises three hundred and twenty acres, in which he owns an interest. As a stock-raiser he has met with most excellent success, and now has a fine lot of stock upon his place. He was married in 1896 to Miss Elizabeth Duckworth, daughter of Jonathan Duckworth, and they now have a son, Lyle Convers. Politically Mr. Frink is identified with the Democracy, and socially affiliates with the Woodmen of the World.
