Although proclaimed as the Peerless Ragtime Pianist on the cover of his only known published work, Rags to Burn (1899), nothing else is known about Frank X. McFadden. The same cover shows an earnest young white man with high collar and natty necktie and the rags themselves are of the Kansas/Missouri folk variety published so much by J. W. Jenkins and Sons.
For data housekeeping purposes he is listed in these webpages as a one-off composer.
