Oakwood Cemetery -  High Point NC
“Frank Armfield was born in Union County May 24, 1870. He graduated at Trinity College. At Trinity he won the debater’s medal of his society and orator’s medal in a general contest. He attended Neff College of Oratory at Philadelphia and later went to Yale, where he received special mention by President Hadley. He took the law course at the University of North Carolina and was admitted to the bar February 1894. He located in Monroe and succeeded from the very first. Mr. Armfield is a well-equipped, all-around lawyer and the firm of Armfield & Williams enjoys a large practice. As a lawyer he is the soul of honor and courtesy; manly in defeat and modest in victory. He served one year as mayor of Monroe, but declined re-election. He is a member of the North Carolina Literary and Historical Society and writes excellent poetry. Some of his poems have appeared in the New York World, Atlanta Constitution, Charlotte Observer and other papers. He is now engaged in the preparation of a volume of poems for publication.” Stack and Beasley 1902

Frank Armfield married Mary Lucille Armfield, daughter of Wyatt Jackson Armfield of Guildford County. They were buried Oakwood Cemetery, High Point, Guilford County, NC
