According to information I received, Catherine Frank was born in Deposit in 1741 to Stephan Frank. The Frank family moved to Deposit from Herkimer County in the 1730's and may have returned there in the early 1750's. Catherine's siblings Frederick, Stephen and John Stephen were also born in Deposit; Elizabeth and Nicholas were born in Herkimer County at a later date. Catherine was buried in 1829 in Deposit. I don't know her married name, if any. I suspect the Frank family were Palatine Germans, so may have moved to the Deposit area as part of a group. Of course I'd love information on this particular family, but would also welcome anything going back to the 1730's and 40's.
