Query Text: Frank A. Dunn married Anna May Breed in 1898 in Cortland. Anna was the daughter of Ezariah (Ed) Breed and Mary Ellen Graves of Lincklaen in nearby Chenango county. Frank and his son, Byrle, were printers for the Cortland Standard in the early 1900s. At age 17, Byrle married (first) - Elizabeth Harrington and they had one son, Byrle, jr. (name later changed to Louis). The marriage ended in divorce. He later married Mary Fleming of Syracuse.
Anna May Breed had brothers Willis and Calvin who lived in Cortland and a sister Elnora who married Milo Shaw of Cuyler. She also had a sister Ida Bell Breed who died in 1906.
After Anna's death in 1943, Frank married Maud Lindemann of Cortland and they bought a farm on Cheningo-Solon Pond Rd. south of Truxton. After Maude's death he married Lura (unknown) and then Pearl Tuttle. He lived to be 92.
