Hello! I have mostly been stumped with uncertainty about who Joseph's father was. I know he worked for a family that was not his own, and I have spoken with a few Foster family members that make great educated guesses, but I would love to find someone who knows for sure. I have pictures of Joseph and Martha, and their old home, but that's all. We are related through the siblings Samuel and Joseph Franklin then. Do you have info about living relatives? If you could, please contact me via my personal email. I will add whatever I can to your info.. It's very nice to "meet" you!
