milling business at Oxford Mills, Iowa, where

In 1886 Air. and Mrs. Boyer made a visit

Boyer passed away Oct. 29, 1889, at the age

the First National Bank of Delta, York coun-
ty, was born Oct. 27, 1867, son of Harry and
Isabel (Ross) Keyser, the former a native of
Philadelphia, and the latter of Lower Chance-
ford township, York county.

The great-grandfather of E. W. Keyser
was Peter Keyser, a noted German Baptist
preacher, who ministered to a large congrega-
tion of that religion for a number of years
in Germantown, Pa. He married Catherine
Clemments, who was also a native of Phila-

E. W. Keyser, grandfather of our subject,
was also born in Philadelphia, where his early
educational training was secured. Early in
life he engaged in the lumber business, and
was one of Philadelphia's leading merchants
in that line for many years. He amassed a
handsome competency, including valuable
holdings in real estate, and was well-known
in the financial world, being president of the
National Bank of Northern Liberties, of Phil-
adelphia, for many years. When a young man
he married Maria Fox, also born in Philadel-
phia, a descendant of one of the good old Ger-
man families of that name. The children born
to this union were : George F., deceased, who
lived in Philadelphia ; Airs. Catherine Wallace ;
Francis; Mrs. Sarah Savage; Harry; and Ben-
jamin W., of Washington, D. C.

Harry Keyser, the father of our subject,
was educated in the schools of Philadelphia,
and when yet a young man came to York
county, and purchased a tract of land in Lower
Chanceford township, near Airville. He at
once set out to improve his land, and added to
it from time to time until at the time of his

demise he owned some of the best land in that
township. His aim was to improve the con-
ditions of the county, and he was broad-minded
and public-spirited. Mr. Keyser was one of
the prime factors in the establishment of the
Peach Bottom Railroad, being greatly instru-
mental in the building of that road, of which he
was one of the stockholders. He was one of
the board of directors from 1884 until 1889,
when the road was sold to Baltimore capital-
ists. Mr. Keyser was a director of the First
National Bank of Delta from its organization
until his death in 1896.

Harry Keysei; was married in 1863 to Isa-
bel Ross, daughter of Hugh Ross, of Lowei
Chanceford township, York county. [An ex-
tended review of the Ross family will be found
elsewhere.] To this union were born: R.
Glenn, who became the wife of Rev. Craig B.
Cross, a Presbyterian minister of Carlisle, Pa. ;
E. Winchester; and Katharine, the wife of C.
Collins Smith, a merchant of Airville, Pa.
Mr. Keyser was a stanch Republican. In his
religious affiliations he was a devoted member
of the Presbyterian Church. Mrs. Keys'^r
died in 1903, aged sixty-eight years.

E. Winchester Keyser attended the com-
mon schools of Lower Chanceford township
and the York Collegiate Institute, after which
he returned home, and assisted his father with
the labors of the farm until 1888, when he ac-
cepted a position with the Peninsula Lumber
Company, of Wilmington, Del., remaining
with this company until 1890. In that year
he returned to Lower Chanceford township,
and managed the home farm until 1902, when
he accepted his present position with the First
National Bank of Delta. Besides being cashier,
Mr. Keyser is a director of this institution,
having held this office since 1896.

In 1903 Mr. Keyser married Miss Eliza
C. Fulton, daughter of James C. and Sarah
(Mitchell) Fulton, of Lower Chanceford
township. Mr. Keyser, like his honored fath-
er, is a member of the Presbyterian Church,
and is ruling elder of that religious body. Po-
litically a stanch Republican, he is not, how-
ever, an office seeker, preferring to devote his
entire time and attention to his numerous busi-
ness interests. He has always taken a public-
spirited interest in the town, however, and sup-
ports every movement which his judgment has
led him to regard as beneficial. He is univer-



sally esteemed, and occupies a high social po-

(VII) Jacob Martin Frick, born Nov.
22, 1855, in Carroll county, Md., son of
Christian Frick, is now living retired in Wash-
ington township, York Co., Pa. He was
actively engaged in farming there until the
spring of 1905, and is one of the prominent
citizens and large landowners of that town-
ship. Mr. Frick spent his early life in his na-
tive county, coming to York county with his
widowed mother in 1867. From that time un-
til he was twenty-four he lived with his uncle,
Joseph Speck, and during that period attended
school in Warrington township, receiving an
excellent common-school training. On leav-
ing his uncle he commenced agricultural work
on his own account, and in spite of his youth
had the ambition to buy 103 acres in Washing-
ton township, of Adam Kinter. He lived on
that tract for many years, making all the
changes and improvements which give the
place its high value at the present day. He
has always been progressive, and by first-class
methods and the exercise of excellent judg-
ment in his work he succeeded so well that he
was able to purchase more property from time
to time. His holdings now comprise 253 acres
of valuable improved farming land, all ad-
joining in Washington township. The place
on which he has lived since he retired, in the
spring of 1905, is a nice farm of fifty-two
acres, and he bought the adjoining farm of
eighty-seven acres from Solomon Border's
estate. Few farms are better situated any-
where in York county ; a fine view of this beau-
tiful agricultural region is to be had from the
site of Mr. Prick's home, and his own attrac-
tive acres form a pleasing part of the pros-
pect. Mr. Frick is still in the prime of life,
and with the comfortable competence he has
accumulated by good management and judi-
cious investments he can look forward to many
enjoyable years. He is an estimable citizen,
living his own life for the good of others as
well as for his own benefit, and is willing to
heljj others do the same. As a deacon in the
Lutheran Church at Barrentz he is actively in-
terested in Christian work generally as well
as in the welfare of his own church, and ex-
ercises a strong influence for good in his com-
munity. He is not identified in any particular
way with public affairs, but gives his sympathy
and support to the Republican party.

Mr. Frick was married, Oct. 30, 1879, to
Hattie B. Speck, from Virginia, daughter



of Frederick and Susannah (Berkheimer)
Speck, and a member of a well-known York
county family. Three children have blessed this
union, Oscar E., Harry Arthur, and Ora, who
is at home. Oscar E. (now aged twenty-live
years) married Grace Harbold, and they are
living on the large farm of his father in Wash-
ington township, which Oscar cultivates.

Harry A. Erick entered Goldey Business
College at Wilmington, Del., in January, 1901,
and followed the course until May 30th, of the
same year, on which day he met with a serious
accident in a trolley wreck, which disabled and
pre\'ented him from entering school again un-
til February, 1902. After finishing the com-
plete course he accepted a position in Phila-
delphia, Pa., in May, 1903, and is now holding
a responsible position with the same firm, The
International Harvester Company of America.

EXOS S. MANN, M. D. The medical
profession has in York county an able and pop-
ular representative in Dr. Mann, who main-
tains his home in the attractive borough of
Dallastown, York township, and who con-
trols a large practice throughout that section
of the county, where he is held in high esteem
as a physician and a citizen. The Doctor has
been in a significant sense the architect of his
own fortunes, having gained through his own
efforts the funds which enabled him to com-
plete his academic and technical education, and
thus his success is the more gratifying to con-

Enos Seitz Mann is a native of the old
Keystone State, having been born in Manor
township, Lancaster county, Oct. 17, 1865,
son of Henry W. and Anna C. (Seitz) Mann,
both representatives of old and honored pioneer
families of that section of the State, where his
father devoted his life to agricultural pursuits.

Bernhart Mann, the great-great-grandfath-
er of Dr. E. S. Mann, was born May 9, 1740,
