If I recall, Frank ultimately hands himself in to the authorities because of the guilt he felt for killing the innocent family (he didnt actually kill them by the way, it was a set up!). He is sent to the electric chair and apparantly killed, however this was also a fake-out. Frank then joins a powerful crime family in order to police them from inside, and this is essentially where we pick up Punisher volume 2.
Volume 2 wasnt popular with Punisher fans due to the fact that Frank working *with* a criminal organisation for the long term is contrary to pretty much every moral he holds.
As for the other Punishers. Lynne Michaels was seen again sometime later in War Journal Volume 2 as a SHIELD agent. Payback was last referred to in Civil War as a potential recruit, 'Hitman' Jimmy Pierce (the mob Punisher) was last seen running off into the night, the Yuppie-Punisher was killed, the 'idiot' Punisher was killed on his first mission when he slipped, Outlaw (The British Punisher) was last show as still active in Punisher annual #7, and Carlos Cruz (the official replacement Punisher) was killed by the mercenary Stone Cold.
