Frank was born in 1879.


The 1910 census gives his "Indian name" as WaConChaHoNoKah, which is for Wakąjaxųnųga, "Young Thunderbird" or "Small Thunderbird," a Thunderbird Clan name. The name is from Wakąjá, "Thunderbird"; xųnų, "little, young"; and -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names.

Hi. Profile photo for Frank might actually be his brother, Henry. Frank would be the other person in this photo. The archive lists the names Henry (first, on the left) and then Frank.
