    Frank was the oldest in Uncle Christ's family and the first to pass away. He was married to Carroll
    Hayward (a minister's daughter) and they had three children who grew to maturity. Their names were
    Erwin, Gladys and Florice. These children have families and live in or near Seattle, Washington where
    their father lived for many years while his family was growing up. Later he bought a home on the island
    of Vashon in Puget Sound, southwest of Seattle, where his wife lives at the present time. Frank
    developed a uremia, a poisoning which affected his heart and caused his death in the year 1945 at the age
    of sixty-seven. Frank was noted for his kindly and lovable disposition and left many very devoted
    friends.
