In the month of December, 1874, died, near Columbus, Georgia, one of the truest and sweetest lyric poets this country has yet produced. Nevertheless, he lived the fifty-two years of his allotted existence in comparative obscurity, and passed to the 'great beyond' unknown, despite the rare originality of his genius and works, except, indeed, to that small portion of the Southern public who condescend now and then to pass from politics to poetry.
Dr. Frank O. Ticknor, born in Baldwin County, Georgia, combined in his mental and moral constitution many of the best qualities of the North and South. His father was a 'New Jerseyman,' a physician of great energy, while his grandparents were natives of Norwich, Connecticut. Dr. Ticknor, the elder, married into a distinguished family of Savannah, and settled for a time in that city. He died a young man, leaving his widow with three small children to support. At once she removed to the town of Columbus, exerting herself with such judicious perseverance that she succeeded in giving to her sons excellent and liberal educations.
