It is reputed that James Franklin married (1) Eunice Barnes [probably about 1676], who was daughter of Samuel Barnes of Barrington, MA (now RI). I have serious doubts about that, but have no proof either way. For one thing, Barrington was originally part of Swansea, MA and wasn't incorporated until the early 1700s. They had at least one son, James, born 8 Jul 1682 in Dartmouth, MA [if the story is true]. Eunice apparently died on or before 1695, when James Sr. married Elizabeth Hammond. Any info will be deeply appreciated.
