So, if I read your post correctly, "our" Joneses had been in Wisconsin all of 23 years when Frank Wright was born ?

I've never thought to ask before now, but where did the Wrights find the name "Frank" ?

The origins of "Frank" are many, from Latin to Old German to Saxon. The olde meanings were javelin, spear, knife or dagger ... take your pick.

The history of Frank's "other half," William Carey Wright, should be examined as well. Frank may have been closer to his mother, but he got a lot more from his father than he was willing to admit.

I mean, what about the name would have appealed to the parents; any Franks in either family ?

“Ultimately from the Germanic tribal name of the Franks, in the early medieval Frankish Empire, the status of being "a Frank" became synonymous with that of a free man; hence also the English adjective frank (Middle English, from Old French franc, 12th century).”

-Wikipedia

He certainly lived up to his name. He behaved and lived as a free man, and he spoke frankly (well, most of the time).
