    • "THE HISTORY OF THE GABRIEL McKENZIE AND RACHEL BLUBAUGH FAMILY OF MARYLAND AND OHIO" by Father Homer Blubaugh:

      McKenzie, Frank Charles, born Nov. 3, 1883, and much of his biography is taken from his obituary in the Pend-
      leton East_Oregon Newspaper of June 9,1956. Frank attended the Jesuit Saint Xavier College, Cincinnati, with the intention of studying for the priesthood. "In 1905 Frank moved to Aberdeen, Washington, then in 1906 to Pendleton (Oregon) to work for the old PendletonTribune." On Nov. 5, 1908, he married Georgia L. O'Daniel and "they moved to Hermiston, Oregon, in 1909, to work for the Newport Construction Co. He later was a partner with H. T. Frazier in the Oregon Hardware and Implement Co. from1912-40." Georgia was born March 14, 1889. Frank or Mac is best known as "Mayor of Hermiston from 1914-22, and 1933-46. In addition he served eight years as City Recorder and Municipal Judge." The purpose of Frank's going west in 1905 was to relieve his chronic hayfever and allergies. Hermiston was a dry climate. He and Georgia were the parents of three sons: George, Gerald and Francis. Frank had been ill for a week before his death on June 8, 1956. Georgia died Jan. 21, 1969. They are buried at Hermiston, Oregon.
