Frank is listed on the obelisk shaped gravestone with his father and his sister Hattie.

Marion County Ga court records indicate that his mother was given guardianship of 32 year old Frank in 1900, right after the census was taken. His death a year later, and the fact that he wasn’t listed in the Macon County household with his wife Georgia Ann and son Roddie about 10 miles away (even though she is listed as married), indicates that he was probably in declining health at the time of the 1900 census. The son listed as “T. J.” in his mother’s Marion County household in 1900 is probably meant to be Frank. The month and year of his birth are a match. Previous census records don’t show her with a son named “T. J.” The column showing him as “widowed” is incorrect, as his wife is listed several miles away in the Macon County census. His brother-in-law, the widowed John B. Cartwright’s children are living in the 1900 Marion County household with their grandmother (Frank’s mother), and John B. may also be there (thus the confusion regarding the unknown person named “T. J.”). It might be noted that there is no record for Frank or John B. listed in any adjacent county census for that year.

The obituary for Frank’s son Roddie names “Frank Jones” as his father.
