Albert C. L. Frost

Research needed:
Willie Mae Prine (William Marion, William Marion, William Henry, John Anderson, Daniel Cannon, Francis) was born 18 Apr 1903, and died 1996. She married Roy Frost, son of Albert Frost and Bertha Prine.
Child: William (Billy) Frost. He married Zelma


Rosa Lee Frost

Rosa never married.


Lucien Larche Frost

Lucien and Emily are recorded in the Censuses of: 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930 [see sources].

Spellings:
Proper spelling of his name: Lucien Larche Frost
1880 United States Census: Lucien Frost (2 years old)
Marriage application: L. F. Frost
Social Security spelled his name: Lucian
His tombstone spelled his name: Luceon (believed to have been phonically spelled by the survivors at the time).

We are going with the name we believe his parent's gave him but fully acknowledge the marriage application spelling, the Federal government's spelling and the tombstone's spelling of his name.

Lucien appears to have been named after a local Ouachita Parish resident: Lucien Larche (b. abt. 1808-Louisiana) married to Antonett Olivo (Oliveaux) on June 10, 1828. The connection to the Frost family is unknown. Lucien Larche (Lucian Larch), his wife, and 7 children are listed on the 1850 Federal Census for Union Parish, Louisiana.

Available on microfilm at the Hill Memorial Library, Louisiana State University campus, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Timothy D. Hudson
The Ouachita Telegraph Friday, 20 April 1877, page 2, column 3 "UNION.
We are pained to learn that Dr. L. Larche, an old and estimable citizen, died at his residence near Downsville, last week. Dr. Larche was one of the pioneer settlers of this section of the State, and his upright course of life united with his other admirable qualities as a citizen, had endeared him to the people of his acquaintance. He raised a large family of children who proved an honor to him in his declining years. His demise has caused a feeling of depression throughout the entire community. Requiescat in peace. - Record."

Lucien Frost had sharecroppers farming his land. He owned the commissary where the sharecroppers bought their food. The sharecroppers seldom were able to get ahead as a result.

Family story:
Lucien had told the family and others that he would help build a jail but never a church. One night while walking from the farm commissary to his Great House, a large ball of fire hit right in front of him and rolled to the spot where the FrostTown Church of God stands today. The very next day, Lucien donated two acres of land and had a parson's house built for the local preacher.

Lucien gave each of his sons 100 acres of land upon his death.

Feedback needed, believed to be descendants of Lucien Larche Frost:
The following names are in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery, Pleasant Valley (FrostTown), Ouachita Parish, Louisiana. I do not know who their parents are, can you help - just email me at: bjalex@pennswoods.net.

Wilbert Jackson Frost Sr.

Family rumor:
Wilbert served in the military or at least was suppose to in 1918. He did not want to serve in the military because of WWI. He hid in a church belfry to avoid authorities. There is probably truth to this because Wilbert can be found in the 1910 and 1930's United States censuses but not in the 1920 census. This could imply that he was still afriad to be found by military authorities.

Gennie is said to be 100 % Choctaw Indian. Her brother, David Lenard, claim they were French.

Gennie met Wilburt in Caldwell Parish, Louisiana.
