William H. Frame cash-claimed a quarter in 2, 9N 55W in 1912.  It's not likely, but a William H. Frame was born July 1893 in Colorado, living with parents Clayton M. and Josephine A. Frame in 1900 Denver.

Another William H. Frame is in Colfax County, New Mexico in 1910, 27, born in Texas, a foreman for a grading company.  So he could have been accustomed to moving frequently.
