  • Biography/Notes:
    Frank maintained his citizenship in the Miami Nation based on his mother's ancestry. He married Josie Decker about 1908 and had a son, Leonard F. Buck, who also died in 1940. As the heir to his father's Quapaw allotment, Frank benefited from mining leases facilitated thereupon. This afforded him many opportunities to travel, but also made him a target for lawsuits. A veteran of World War I, he was a leader in the local American Legion, often attending conventions within the state and across the country with his son. He worked for a time as a farmer in Ottawa County, but moved to Los Angeles shortly before his death in 1940. He is buried in the G.A.R. Cemetery in Miami.
