This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Landscape painter, Francis Seth Frost, a Bostonian, made his first trip West in 1859 as part of the Lander Wyoming Expedition, which went into Idaho as well as Wyoming.  The expedition purpose was to find a 'cut off' or alternate route to the north of Mormon occupied lands in response to the Mountain Meadows Massacre in 1857.  This killing had occurred in a meadow near Cedar City, Utah, where Mormon's, allegedly with Indian assistance, had murdered 128 emigrants from Arkansas.  Albert Bierstadt and Henry Hitchings were also artists members of the group, and on this trip the Expedition left from Saint Joseph, Missouri.

Frost then had his own studio in Boston, and also briefly took up photography. 

According to John J. Henderson, scholar of the White Mountain School of Painting, the middle name of Shedd is mistakenly linked to this artist.
