Hi - I don't have Frank's death certificate yet but believe I may have his obituary. I am looking for it in my files. I found it online through a library database. Offhand I believe he died in Muskegon, MI at the hospital, something like Mercy. After his wife Martha nee Stankus died, he remarried per my aunt. The online 1920 census says 1898 immigration for Frank and 1896 for Martha. For "Naturalized or Alien" it says "Pa" which I think means "first papers". It gives "Place of Birth" as Russia for Frank and Martha and "Mother Tongue" as Lithuanian. This same information is listed for "Father" and "Mother" of Frank and Martha. It says Frank was able to read/write but Martha says "No". He is Frank Barkus in the 1920 US Federal Census. He is Frank Bartkus in the 1910 census. Gives his immigration as 1898 and Martha's as 1894. Frank's work is listed as laborer for railroad in the 1910 census; none for Martha.
