Biography of Frank L. Barnet


Barnet, Frank L., Alden, was born in 1859, and is a son of Peter M. and Sarah (Foster) Barnet of Buffalo. Peter M. was a Scotchman by birth, and came to Buffalo nearly fifty years ago, where he followed the trade of cabinet-maker; he died in 1876; his wife was of English descent, but spent most of her life in Buffalo, and died in 1886. They had four children, of whom Frank L. was the youngest. He received his education from the public schools of the city, and after graduating entered the law office of W. B. Donohue, where he remained about three years, when Mr. Donohue went to New York and Mr. Barnet found a new preceptor in W. W. Hodge, whose office he then entered. He remained there until admitred to the bar in 1881. The opportunities seeming better in the smaller towns at that time, Mr. Barnet settled in Alden, Erie county, where he has built up a successful practice. He is counsel for the village corporation and has served it also in other official capacities. He has recently established an office in Buffalo. In September, 1881 he married M. Louise, daughter of Charles M. and Asenath Platt of Alden.
