    • According to Penny Linton's report of what her father told her, Frank transported people across Lake Ponchartrain. A storm came up, and he drowned. His tombstone indicates it happened in 1906.
      HOWEVER, according to his succession papers filed in the Saint Tammany Parish courthouse, he died at home on 28 Oct 1903.

      In any event, he died without a will; his estate, valued at $1295.00, was settled in the courts. The distribution was as follows:
      $174.16 each to minors Francesca, Sydney, and Lovell (children of Antonia Cagnolatti.)
      $174.16 to Rita Fauria Dugas.
      $174.16 each to minors Pearley and Aliska (children of Adelia Dannel)
      $125 to adopted daughter Matilda Landry.
      $125 to widow Adelia Dannel Faurier.
      This included a $1,000 insurance policy paid in equal amounts to each of the above; household & kitchen furniture valued at $45; and a lot of ground 50 x 200 feet on Main Street valued at $250. Apparently the household goods and lot were sold and the proceeds divided among the natural children, as the wife and adopted daughter got only the insurance payment.

    • He is identified with the title "Captain" on his tombstone.

      Tombstone inscription (per Penny Linton):
      To my dear husband, Capt. Frank Fauria
      Born April [date missing] 1853
      Died October 28, 1906
      A Friend to All

      He is buried under a slab wide enough for three graves or more. Because it is cemented, it is likely that the graves are filled, but no record of who is buried there has been discovered.
