FRANK H. BUHL, manager of the Sharon Iron Works, now the property of Buhl, Sons & Co., is a native of Detroit, Mich., in which city his parents reside. He received a first-class education and is a graduate of Yale College. In 1869 Mr. Buhl located in Sharon, and in 1874 became manager of the extensive iron works previously spoken of. He filled that position four years and then returned to Detroit. In August, 1887, he again took charge of the works, and has since remained in that capacity. Mr. Buhl was married February 8, 1888, to Miss Julia Forker, daughter of the late Henry Forker and granddaughter of the venerable T. J. Porter, Esq., of Sharon. He is a Republican in politics, and one of the most prominent iron manufacturers of Pennsylvania.
