Frankum, his son, Frederick George Frankum, who was born in Canada, and his daughter, Winifred Annie Frankum, who was born in the United States of America, were lost on the Lusitania. At the time of her death Winifred was not quite three years of age. Her father, a British subject, was her sole heir. Raymond R. Cameron was duly appointed, qualified, and is acting as Administrator of the Estate of Winifred Annie Frankum, Deceased. No claim is made for any personal property lost with the minor.
