Frank's closest friend in his boyhood was a Wiminuche called Jack House, later to be Chief of the Ute Indian Tribe.

Frank ran stock from Dove Creek to the San Juan.

He was the head stockman for the Ute Mountain reservation.

He is know to have had a homestead in Delores and ran his own cattle.

In 1919 he and a partner bought Joe Tanner's trading post on Tanner Mesa.

He build a 2nd. store at Macos Creek.

He later ran cattle again and also bought the Ute Trading Co.
