In the 1860 census, he is 8 years old and lives with his parents and siblings. In the 1870 census, he is 18 years old with the occupation of seaman but is still living with his parents.
Without the family that I am working with, I would wonder what happened to Frank. Sometimes with situations like this, a body is not recovered and there is no gravestone. It is great that the family put one up for him here in the family plot at Elm Grove Cemetery in Mystic, CT
