Frank was a diver at the Eastland Disaster in 1915 Chicago. The ship turned over to it's side and hundreds of people died. Frank brought up many bodies. We had pictures, but they were stolen when we were robbed. Frank is my father's father. He married Mabel J. Kennedy and they had two children: Charlotte and Charles. Frank and Mabel may have divorced. Frank may have been robbed and stabbed to death for his pay check in New York. Not a lot is known about Frank... But I would love to know more about him and have some pictures. I don't know if he ever married again or not. My father told me he only saw him a few times in his life after his parents separated.
