Hi. I'm not related to this family. Here is a possibility for Frank in the 1940 Census:

1940 United States Federal Census about Frank Moskun
Name:        Frank Moskun
Age:        41
Estimated Birth Year:        abt 1899
Gender:        Male

Birthplace:        Ohio
Marital Status: Single
Relation to Head of House: Guest
Home in 1940:        Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Pennsylvania
Inferred Residence in 1935: Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Pennsylvania
Residence in 1935: Same Place
Sheet Number:        81A
Household Members:        
Name        Age
Frank Moskun -guest, Nick's Hotel- b. 1899 OH; Track Worker, Railroad

This might be a WWI draft card for him:

U.S., World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918 about Frank Moskune

Birth Date: 26 Jan 1900
Race:        White
Draft Board:        5
Age: 18
Occupation: Laborer, Greensburg, Pa
Nearest Relative: Nick Moskun, Bolivar

Nick might have been Frank's father. Here in the family in 1910:

Pennsylvania 1910 Miracode Index about Nick Moskun

Son       John       13 b. 1897 Pennsylvania
Son       Frank       11 b. 1899 Pennsylvania **
Dau       Mary       09 b. 1901 Pennsylvania

There is a naturalization record for Nick:

Pennsylvania, U.S. Naturalization Originals, 1795-1930 about Nick Moskun
Name:        Nick Moskun
Age:        27
Birth Date:        abt 1870

Naturalization Date:        26 Jul 1897
Arrival Year: 4 July 1891
Court Type:        Circuit Court and District Court
Court Location:        Western District, Pennsylvania

I found a very interesting newspaper article:

"Frank Moskun, of West Wheatfield township, entered a plea of guilty to failing to support a child born out of wedlock. He was sentenced to pay the costs of prosecution and pay the mother of the child $7.00 a month for a period fo 60 months." ~Indiana Progress, The - Wednesday, August 30, 1933, Indiana, Pennsylvania

Hope this helps. Annie
