      After Lucinda died Frank married Molly WHITE June 14 1883 in Ashley Co Ark.   As per the Frank O Erickson Bible Marie An Catherine "Molly" White was born May 20 1853. Frank was Swedish, therefore Marie instead of Mary and An instead of Ann.     In the 1890 Ashley Co Ark personal property tax index, Frank Erickson is shown in school district 1 with property valued at $525.   School district 1 was in the SW corner of Ashley Co.
On June 24 1891 Frank's address was Petersburg Post Office, Ashley Co Ark.   He lived 20 "English" miles from Crossett Ark.   Frank Erickson ran a two story - double log hotel that catered to people coming to the Sulphur Springs Health Resort.
