Frank was an enslaved worker at Tuckahoe during the Wight and Allen period. He is thought to have been born sometime between 1803-1805. He first appears on the inventory list of Edwin Wight’s estate in April 1850. Shortly thereafter, he is listed in Joseph Allen’s account after he acquired Tuckahoe in July of that year. Frank was listed as a field hand in the Allen records and was one of the oldest enslaved workers during this time. Next to him on one account was a man named Washington Johnson who was close enough in age to let us presume they were brothers.
