Francis "Frank" S. Chanfrau (1824 - 2 October 1884) was an American
actor and theatre manager in the 19th century. He began his career
playing bit parts and doing impressions of star actors such as
Edwin Forrest and of ethnic groups. In 1848, he appeared as a
Bowery b'hoy named Mose in A Glance at New York. The play became a

Traveller and Sam. Chanfrau's wife, Henrietta Baker Chanfrau, was a
well-known actress who usually performed under the name Mrs. F. S.
