Try the Bureau of Land Management's website www.glo.records.gov/ for FRANKS to determine when they purchased land for homesteading. I visited Granby this past September and learned it is the only coal mining town in Missouri and West of the Mississippi. The BLM has images of these land deeds in GIF format and you can order certified copies from them.
Hope this helps!
