Biography

Frank (born Robert Findley McLaury, and known as "Rob" when younger) was born in Kortright, New York. He was the son of Margaret Rowland and Robert Houston. The McLaury family worked a farm in Merideth, Delaware County, New York. The father Robert moved the family to a new farm near Belle Plaine in Benton County, Iowa, in 1855, where Robert also practiced law. His mother Margaret died in October 1857 when Frank was 9. Franks' father Robert was 65 years old in August 1865. By that time he had lived as a widower for over 15 years. He was the father of 11 children, six of them sons. But by 1875, two of his sons had already died. Hugh McLaury was only 4 years old when the house caught fire and no one could get to him in time.

Frank's older brother Edwin McLaury joined the 14th Iowa Volunteers, which saw action at the battle of Fort Sumter and Pittsburgh Landing (Shiloh). Edwin was captured and imprisoned at Macon, Georgia, and after he was paroled he came home but died in October 1862 from the effects of starvation and disease. Another brother, Will, was still serving in the Union Army and could not attend Edwins' funeral.
