Peter had a son, Matthew Peter FRANK born 1815 in Busti, New York. Matthew Peter FRANK was a shopkeeper in Germantown, Montgomery County, Ohio. Montgomery County is next to Darke County so the two persons appear to be connected.
Matthew Peter FRANK was born 3/17/1815 and died 7/2/1866. He married Eliza Jane VANDERVEER on January 24, 1839. Eliza was born on 4/13/1821 and died on 12/6/1850. They had four children: Mary Jane, George W., Cerene, and Charles C.
On January 13, 1852, Matthew Peter FRANK married Mary EMINGER in Montgomery County. Mary was born on 8/24/1831 and died on 3/16/ 1876. All these people are buried in the Germantown Cemetery which we visited in May of this year. Mary and Matthew had six children: Joseph A., William E. (my grandfather), Edward, Annetta, Jacob, Clara, and David.
Matthew Peter FRANK is my great grandfather. I do not know his mother's name, nor do I know any of his brother's and sister's names. I have lots of information prior to 1800 and about the ancestors following Matthew Peter FRANK to exchange.
