SOURCES:

Frank's date of birth was noted in Amy Dugal's WCdb. His year of emigration was noted on the 1900 census and that allowed a very brief entry for him to be identified in Walter Tenfelde's book Auswanderungen und Auswanderer aus dem ehemaligen Kreise Lingen nach Nordamerika which supplied possible place of birth. Luenne parish records were checked and a corresponding birth/bapt entry was found there for Bernard Franz. His parents' names as noted above were from that entry. Information about his death was from the WCdb.
