I know next to nothing about Frank. He emigrated to the US from Germany in 1900. He married my great-grandmother Jessie and apparently really loved her. Family legend is that he took his own life after Jessie died. Official records show he died 9 years after Jessie did and that seems like a long time to mourn.

How sad. What a tragic couple.
Bearing out what’s often said about men not doing well in widowhood . . .
Nine years does seem like a long time to mourn. I suspect something else was involved, and the family legend is the most palatable of options?
