Frances Margery "Frankie" Gleason Painter
Birth: May 3, 1923
Fort Benton
Chouteau County
Montana, USA
Death: Sep. 1, 1955
Okfuskee County
Oklahoma, USA

The last child and sixth daughter of Gus Bockenkamp and Alta Moody, she was born in 1922. Frankie and her sister were adopted by Charles Edward Gleason and Agnes Stella Mulcahy, in the early 1930s. The Bockenkamp family did not get back together (all of them) until Frankie's death in 1955.

The family was traveling in two cars from Washington DC to their new duty station at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. I'm told Daddy turned around when I started crying and wouldn't stop. Mama and Gerry both died in a head-on collision with another car. Two sisters were injured but recovered. The passengers in the other vehicle survived.

Her father said, when told of her death, "she was born on the road (they didn't make it to the hospital) and she died on the road."
