I suspect Frank Krise was living in Minersville, PA around 1909 because according to my grandfather's (Paul Jacob KRISE, Frank's son) obituary, my grandfather was born in Minersville on 1909-Jul-23.
I also found this very intriguing household on FamilySearch.com (from the 1880 census) with a 6 month old Frank KREIS in it, but at this point I don't have a clue how to try to link this tantalizing bit of information to the very little bit I know about my ggrandfather, Frank KRISE. This census entry resonates because the Frank in this household would have been between 29-30 when my grandfather was born. Also, my grandfather's middle name matches Frank's father's name - Jacob.
