The Frame family is of record in the colony of Connecticut prior to the revolutionary war, as shown in land transactions, although the connection between them and the family later of Ulster county, New York, cannot be traced. Following the trend of emigration, the family, no doubt after the war, migrated to New York state, where three brothers, Anthony, Andrew and John, are found. Anthony Frame went west and all trace is lost. Andrew settled in Schenectady, New York, where he was in the employ of the (now) New York Central Railroad as engineer, and later as foreman in the railroad shops. He died in 1890, and is buried in Vale Cemetery. He married Rebecca Van Voast, born in Schenectady, where she died in old age. Child, John, deceased, leaving a widow.
