            David Theodore (Ted) Frison was born july 6, 1906 in Ten Sleep, Big Horn Co., Wyoming—his parents were pioneers Jacob C. and Margaret Shields Frison who came to Ten Sleep in 1901.  In Addition to Ted, there were several other boys in the Frison family: Robert, Paul and George Frison lived to adult age but a younger brother, James Alfred Frison, passed away at the age of 10 In 1912.  A sister Annella also preceded Ted in death in 1916. 

Ted spent all of his life in the ranching business.  In 1935 he married Maurine E. Nelson and the couple had 6 children:  Margaret Inez Harless, Willis (Billy), David, Jean Marie, Daniel and Patrick (Ricky).  Maurine passed away in 1962 and some time later, the ranch was sold, and Ted moved to Worland, WY and owned and operated a feeding system for cattle between Worland and Thermopolis until he passed away December 15, 1982.


Memories:  I believe that Ted Frison was a good man, a faithful member of the Catholic Church, and a loving husband and father.  Fb
