Do you know the location of the John M. Franck home ? Was it Onslow or Jones county ?What about Edward Franck who married Leah Probart ?Where did he live ?If I'm not mistaken, Leah also married Waitstill Avery and that family connects to the Howards in Onslow Co.,NC.Any ideas on that ? Do you know where Jenkins or Cohorn swamps are ? Please read these deeds from Onslow co.,NC.I'm trying to locate the cemetary mentioned below.THANKS SO MUCH .
