    Frank was my grandfather. Taught me how to bowl, Unfortunately, it didn’t take.

      The Bowling Museum in Texas has an old silent film short from the 1920s called “Pin Action.” At the very beginning, there’s footage of Frank rolling a couple of shots. You might want to contact the Museum to see it.

    Thanks so much for the reply and info J.R.. In what Texas city might the Bowling Museum be located?

    Your grandfather, Frank, bowled with my grandfather, Baxter Reed Sharp, in the Chicago Classic League. I know their team traveled all over the country to bowling tournaments in the 30’s. Frank helped my grandfather and father build a cabin in Nestor Falls, Ontario after the war. We have some very old and fragile silent movie footage of them during the building phase. I never met Mr Kartheiser, but his name was a part of many conversations in our household. I know my grandfather considered him a good friend.

      I remember my grandfather Frank speak of fishing in Canada. It’s so cool that we’re ‘related’. Do you recall their team name ?
