|Frank M. Mayo|
He moved to San Francisco where at seventeen years of age he began his career and within a few years was appearing with the young Edwin Booth. He won applause in some classic roles, but his first great success was as Badger in The Streets of New York which he appeared in Boston in August 1865. In 1872 he brought out Davy Crockett, a backwoods character which endeared him to the public. In later years he played in "Davy Crockett" revivals.
Mark Twain's Pudd'nhead Wilson was a character well suited to display his talents as a comedian. Other favorite roles were in "Nordeck" and "The Royal Guard". Mayo is buried in West Laurel Hill Cemetery in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania.
