Notes:
Frank was living with his sister, Elenor, and her family in 1880.

Nothing is known of Frank's first marriage to Jennie.  They weren't married very long before she died in 1885.  Jennie Quinett is documented as buried in the Johnston Smith Cemetery.  It is believed that this is Jennie, Frank's 1st wife, not Mary Jennie, Charles's sister.

In 1913, they immigrated to Saskatchewan Canada and Frank homesteaded in the Sweet Hills District, west of Simpson (Homestead Description: Part NW; Section 13; Township 29, Range 27, Meridian W2).  Frank later operated the Simpson Hotel and then later established himself in business in Liberty, Saskatchewan where he had a livery stable, a garage, and a blacksmith shop.  As a result of a disastrous fire in 1922, which spread through the business district of the village, he was completely wiped out.
