Frank's burial location not proved. It is believed he is one of the 47 or so who were reinterred from the Beard School Grounds cemetery to the Beardstown City Cemetery in 2002:
"Here rest the remains of 47 early pioneers of Beardstown unearthed in July 1997 at the Beard School Grounds a former cemetery reinterred here on May 14 2002."

He is possibly buried with his parents in the Wells Cemetery.
