About 1899, Frank left to go to Dawson City in the Yukon Territory with his brother Walter. (Walter later served with the military during in the First World War; he died in Hong Kong in 1943.)

While Frank and Walter were on their way to Dawson City, they decided to go instead to Atlin, British Columbia. Walter and another partner set up a druggist business in Atlin.

While he was in Atlin, Frank became active in the mining business. By 1903, he was a member of the Atlin branch of the British Columbia Miners’ Association.

By about 1905 he had begun to go to the Bulkley and Telkwa river areas of British Columbia, where he eventually went to live.

On April 21, 1909, in Vancouver, Frank married Elizabeth Danella Alexandra Whiteside (who was sometimes called “Nell” or “Nella” or “Lizzie.”)

Frank and Nell lived for a time at the Dockrill family home called “Sunnyside.”

Frank first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1910. He was a mining engineer, living at number 4 in the Stanley Court apartments, 920 Bidwell Street.

By 1915, Frank and Nell had moved from Vancouver to Telkwa in northwestern British Columbia.

In 1916, Frank ran as a Conservative candidate in the British Columbia general election. He was unsuccessful. He also ran unsuccessfully as a candidate for the Provincial party in the 1924 provincial general election.

In the 1930s, he developed a coal mine near Telkwa. He was also an active member of the Associated Boards of Trade of Central British Columbia. He strove to preserve sport fish and wild life for future generations.
