I'm trying to assist Chere Urgo with documenting her lineage for DAR. DAR has requested the following copies:
1. copy of proof "Daniel" (not "D") Franklin, born in Cincinnati in 1821, enlisted in Co. C, 72nd Illinois Infantry, died in Vicksburg, 22nd. June 1863, and buried there.
2.copy of documented proof that Daniel was the father of John T. Franklin, born 1859 in Illinois.
3. copy of documented proof that Daniel's father, Thomas Franklin was the son of Benjamin Franklin of Vigo County, Indiana who died in 1830.
4. copy of any texts or transcripts stating Benjamin Franklin was the son of Jehiel Franklin
Unfortunately, DAR does not accept "heresay" from other researchers. They require copies of documented proof with references. I do not belong to Ancestry.com, so if anyone could please help out, it would be GREATLY appreciated.
Please send proof to me at: Reginacopper@yahoo.com
PS. I will gladly pay $5 for each copy of documented proof with reference to it for the above mentioned to first person who sends it.
