Frank Sebastian/Bastian

My grandmother was Mabel Bastian, born 1895 in Chicago, died while a resident of Oak Park, IL in 1942. Mabel's father, I believe was called/named "Frank" who emigrated from Quebec with three other brothers in late 19th century. Their original last names were Sebastian.
The three brothers supposedly sold ice and went on to found Bastian-Blessing, makers of soda fountain equipment.
Any info on "Frank," the brothers, or when they emigrated? Many thanks.
