On this 13th day of March A.D. 1896 at 7:45 o'clock P.M. came Isaac A. Merchant and filed herein a deed of assignment to him from John R. Frame and Geo. M. Beicher partners doing business as Frame and Beicher in trust for the benefit of all their creditors.
F. J. Schultz Probate Judge.

10. Newspaper: Marion Star: Court Actions re Frame & Beicher, 14 Mar 1896, Marion, Marion, OH. 18 Page 5:

Fred E. Guthery, as attorney for himself, Friday filed in the court of common pleas a petition in foreclosure against George M. Beicher and Irene Beicher, his wife. The Ohio Building and Loan company, Carrie Ladd, Jane King, Mary A. Coffy and T, P. Wallace doing business as the Deposit bank.
In his petition Mr. Guthery sets up three notes signed by Geo. M. Beicher, one for $300, one for $541.25 and one for $1000, the first due on or before one year, the second on or before three years and the third due on or before five years after date, and secured by three mortgages, the first on lot 689 in Patten & Wallace's addition to Marion, the second on lots 689, 702 and 703, in the same addition the mortgage being on the undivided half of lots 702 and 703, and the third mortgage being on the same premises as the second mortgage.
The plaintiff says that all the notes are due and payable, that the defendants aside from Mr. Beicher and his wife claim some interests in the premises and asks that they may be compelled to set up their interests.

The Deeds Were Made by Frame & Beicher
John R. Frame and George M. Beicher.
The Assetts Amount to About $14,000.
Liabilities Not Given Out.

At 7:45 o clock Friday night three deeds of assignments were filed in the probate court.

All the deeds were made to Isaac A. Merchant and in the first the grantors were Frame and Beicher, in. the second John R. Frame and in the third George M. Beicher.

The property conveyed in the deeds by Frame & Beicher to Merchant was the stock of furniture and undertaking supplies owned by the firm at their place of business on west Center street. The stock is valued at $3000.

In the Frame deal lots 828 in Wallace's and True's second addition to the city is forty-eight acres of land in Big Island township, this county, and all his personal property, which is estimated to be worth $4500.

Mr. Beicher conveyed in the deed lot 689 and the undivided half of lots 702 and 703 in Patten and Wallace's addition to the city, all his personality and any interest which he might have in any other realty. It is estimated that Mr. Biecher's assets will be in the neighborhood of $6000.

The assignment was brought about by the extreme depression of the times and the hardness of the money market and it is more than likely that three judgments taken by Mary A. Coffy and the Marion deposit bank in the court of common pleas, aggregating $1200, may have somewhat precipitated the step.

The affair is a most unfortunate one and the many friends of Messrs. Frame and Beicher are filled with regret that those gentlemen find it necessary to make the assignment.
