Mahlon Lowry Frost was the son of Benjamin F. Frost Sr. and Margaret Mooney, whose pictures I also have on this site. Mahlon was born 20 Sep 1838 in Lodi Twp, Athens Co, Ohio. He married Nancy Elizabeth Ward, (whose picture I also have on this site) on 18 Aug 1863 in Bancroft, Freeborn Co, Minnesota. In 1885, they settled in what is now Cody, Wyoming on the western side of the Big Horn Mountains. They operated a way station for travelers for a few years, then moved on to California, leaving behind their son Ned, who apparently wished to run the way station. Mahlon died 1 Dec 1929 in Long Beach, Los Angeles Co, California where he is buried. Note: Mahlon's brother, Benjamin Lorin Frost, settled on the eastern side of the Big Horn Mountains in Sheridan, Wyoming. For some reason, the brothers did not stay in contact.
