Millspaugh, Frank Rosebrook, Protestant Episcopal bishop of Kansas, was born on April 12, 1848, at Nichols, Tioga county, N. Y. He is of Dutch and Huguenot ancestry, the name having originally been spelled "Miltzbach." In 1857 his parents removed to Minnesota, where he received his early education in the parish schools, after which he completed the course at Shattuck Hall in 1869, and in 1872 graduated at the Seabury Divinity School with the degree of Bachelor of Divinity. In June, 1873, he was made a deacon in the church, and the following year was ordained to the priesthood. His first charge was at Duluth, Minn. In 1876 he was made dean of the cathedral at Omaha, Neb., where he remained for ten years, at the end of which time he went to St. Paul's church at Minneapolis, Minn. In 1894 he became dean of the Grace cathedral at Topeka, Kan., and the next year succeeded Bishop Thomas as the executive head of the diocese. Bishop Millspaugh has been active in his work of building up the church in Kansas. He has cleared off a debt of $35,000 against Bethany College at Topeka; has built sixteen new churches, and has been the means of increasing the membership in most of the older congregations. He was united in marriage in 1882 with Miss Mary M. Clarkson, daughter of Bishop Clarkson, of Omaha.
