Tombstone Thursday - (Actor) Frank Vincent Kiefer

Actor Frank Vincent Kiefer
(Note the curtain across the top!)

There is a curious tombstone in New salem Campground Cemetery on
Campground Road in Evansville. The inscription reads as follows:

The Final Curtain For Actor
Frank Vincent Kiefer
Born Friday May 26, 1873
Died Friday May 26, 1933

Did not find an obituary for this man, but he is listed on the 1930
Vanderburgh County census on Emmett Street in Evansville. His
occupation is listed as a saleman at a flour mill.

The tombstone was photographed 25 April 2009 by Brenda Joyce Jerome and submitted by her.
Note: We have not found anything on this "actor" - maybe someone can find something more about him! Browning Database Obits list a Frank Kiefer that died in 1955 & had lived at 1303 Emmett Street... is this the same man? - JGWest

[Tombstone Thursday is dedicated in memory of Donald G. West 1952-2000]

This is surely the same man as the one on the 1930 Vanderburgh County census. The address is the same and the same children are listed on the census and in Browning's Obits. Only the death year is different. A mistake, surely.
