 {IR3} Frank (Francis) H Audley

Obituary New York Times  Thursday 11th May 1916

 Frank H Audley, who conducted a police supply shop at 8 Centre Market, opposite police Headquarters, died yesterday in St Vincent’s Hospital, where he was taken Monday night after being stricken with a complication of disease. Mr Audley, who was 67 years old, had been in the police supply business for ten years. Formerly he was a harness maker, but the development of automobiles  made his trade unprofitable. Mr Audley was the inventor of many appliances used by the police, including a safety holster. He lived in Stamford Conn where a wife, three sons and a daughter survive him
