Burial will be in the I.O.O.F. Cemetery under the direction of the E. M. Trout and Sons Funeral Home.

Round was born Aug. 26, 1877, in Donephan county, Kan., one of 13 children of the late Mr. and Mrs. Allen ROUND. He moved with his parents to Kay County at the opening of the Cherokee Strip, when his father staked a claim six miles northwest of Ponca City.

Frank registered in the Kiowa County land drawing and his was the third name drawn. He selected a farm adjoining the present townsite of Hobart. Later he sold the farm and purchased a farm adjoining his father's land.

On Aug. 23, 1904, he married Nellie BEARD in Ponca City. They farmed until early in 1919, when they moved to Ponca City. ROUND was associated with L. S. BARNES, Bill WADDLOW, O. C. HATFIELD and O. C. WHITE, retiring shortly after the close of World War II.

He had been a active member of the Methodist Church since 1904 and was a regular attendant of the Methodist Men's Bible Class.

Surviving ROUND are his wife of the home, 518 North Fourth; a daughter, Mrs. Lorene CLARK, 514 North Fourth; a son, Clarence, 703 Eat Overbrook; three brothers, Edd, 1808 North Woodland; Jack, 209 North Palm; and Fred of Grove; three sisters, Mrs. Bell WHITE, 115 North Lake; Mrs. Rella FIELDS of Blackwell and Mrs. Mary SLABACK of Lakeview, Ark., and three grandchildren, Coleenand Clark ROUND and Karen CLARK.
