Frank Payne Sebree

Frank Payne Sebree was born in Fayette, Missouri, October 25, 1854.  His education was received first at Central College in Fayette, then at Pritchett College in Glasgow, Mo., and then he entered the law department of the Missouri State University.  After being graduated and duly admitted to the bar he located in Marshall, where he practiced law until 1889, when he came to Kansas city for a permanent residence.  The year prior to his removal to Kansas City he was elected to the Legislature from Saline County, and during his term served with conspicuous ability as chairman of the Judiciary Committee.

     Mr. Sebree is a life-long Democrat, and ahs always taken an active interest in politics.  He served as chairman of the County Committee in the campaign of 1898.  In 1902 Mr. Sebree was appointed Police Commissioner by Governor Dockery, and in August resigned that position to accept the more important place of chairman of the Election Board.  Mr. Sebree has also served as County Counselor, in fact, resigned that well-salaried office to accept the appointment of Police Commissioner, which pays practically nothing.

     In 1883 Mr. Sebree married Miss Russie Boyd, daughter of Colonel Sam Boyd, of Marshall.  They have one son, Sam, born in 1887.
