Frank was born on December 13, 1887 in Cardigan, Prince Edward Island. In 1914, he filed on a homestead in the North Kleskun district (SE 16-74-4-W6). Frank was drafted in 1918 and never saw action. After the war, he returned to PEI and married Mary on August 20, 1919. The couple returned to Alberta and settled on Frank’s quarter section. Because of ill health it became necessary for Frank to give up farming, and he went to Drumheller in 1942 to work for the CNR as a bridgeman. The rest of the family joined him later the same year. Frank died on August 5, 1957 and is buried in Drumheller.
