Sgt., U.S. Army, WW I.

In 1925, World War I veteran Frank Heath and his horse Gypsy Queen began a journey across the United States, with the goal of visiting all 48 states. They completed the trip more than two years later, returning to their starting point in Washington, D.C. in 1927. In all, the pair covered 11,356 miles, making it the longest trail ever covered by one horse under saddle.

-------------

His first marriage was to Minnie Stone 1869-1924 and they had 5 children. I believe they were divorced.

His 2nd marriage was to my Great-Grandfather's Sister, Pheme/Phebe Logan. They had zero children together and were also divorced.
