Descendants of Franklin M. Gant & Sara(h) Roxanna Hefner. The known children (all born in Iredell County, NC) are: Mary, born ca 1870 Julie A., born ca 1873 Lillie L., born ca 1874 Buela(h), born ca 1879 Ina M., born May 1883 Martha G., born Nov 1877 Roxanna had a son who is listed on the 1880 census as Thomas F. Gant, but he is actually Thomas F. Hefner. There was also a daughter Sally (Sallie) who may have been Roxanne's daughter, but she is also sometimes listed as a Gant. I know that six of the seven girls were alive in Dec of 1932, per Thomas' obituary.
