Frank was the natural-legitimate father of Marie Louise ELFERS-LEWIS< at her death 12/2001. My mother was born Annibrita d'WAINIO, in New York City, where she was adopted by the Herman & Katherine EVERS-ELFERS, family. 3 of five of Frank's children from his 2nd marriage were put up for adotpion, his wife had died and his
restaurant (FINNISH) in NYC, NY, had failed, so he put the 3 youngest children up for "adoption" 2 girls and a son, two were adopted one a daughter remained in the adoptions home till she died, in her 80's, I bleieve as my mother in later years DID, have some contact with her. That duahgter somewhat older than my mother never married, nor had children. Frank moved to Little Rock, AR, after the failure of his restaurant, in NYC and started up a small motel, which did well enough, he then moved to CA, where he lived had a small motel and died at age 90. His third was was apparently Maria WAINIO. 1920 United States Federal Census
