L. Frizzel was born in the state of Maryland in the year 1815, and came to Ohio prior to the organization of Ashland County, and settled near Olivesburgh, where he remained about two years. When he landed at Olivesburgh he had three one-half dollar pieces in his pocket, and all of his baggage, beside the suit of clothes he wore, tied up in a handkerchief. He removed from Olivesburgh to Savannah, and engaged with an old pioneer by the name of Smith, at fifty cents per day to take charge of and drive his team. When twenty-one years old, his employer started him on a trip to Baltimore with one hundred and sixty bushels of clover and timothy seed. In this venture he was successful, and it was the beginning of a career that has proved to be a successful and prosperous one. He soon after married the daughter of his employer, and has, by industry, perseverance and luck, amassed a good fortune, and is one of the leading members of the Methodist church.
