Mr. Frizzell was born in Guilford Nov. 25, 1840. He was one of seven children of Mr. and Mrs. John Frizzell, all of whom are now dead. In 1862 he enlisted in the war of the Rebellion, joining the 11th Vermont regiment at Brattleboro in a company in which were many Guilford young men. He served in the war three eyars, participating in several notable engagements, among them Cold Harbor, Spottsylvania, Antietam and the Wilderness. He was promoted corporal in January 1864.

At the close of his term of enlistment Mr. Frizzell returned to his father's farm in Guilford. Twenty-five years ago he entered the employ of Smith & Hunt in Guilford, now the S. A. Smith company of Brattleboro, coming to Brattleboro in 1881. His work during the larget part of those 25 years was in the packing department.

Mr. Frizzell married Fannie E. Riggs of Guilford in 1869. His second wife was Ida M. Morris of Guilford, daughter of Paul Morris, now of Easthampton, Mass., in November 1884. She survives him with one son, Abbott, 13 years old.

Mr. Frizzell was a member of the Methodist church, Wantastiquet lodge of Odd Fellows and Sedgwick post, G.A.R. In his home, in the factory, the church, the lodge or on the battle field his life was that of a true and loyal man. His services were valued highly by his employers, and his clean character, high ideals and Christian impulses were attributs for which he was respected by all who knew him.
