All of my info came from a journal a cousin of mine put together several years ago.In there it lists Samuel's father as William, mother unknown.
After I posted the message on the forum and received several responses I called her and she said most of the info came from one of our Aunts.I am planning on visiting this Aunt soon to see this info for myself.
I do not have any of this info into the computer yet, but I have promised a couple of others copies of everything and if you will e-mail me your address I will make copies for you also.
Which line of John Franklin's are you from?I am from his daughter's, Sallie Manahan,who married John William Kennedy.
Also I'm having computer problems so you may want to respond to firstname.lastname@example.org until I get this computer fixed.
What info do you have?The majority of info I have is after they came to Freestone county, in 1868.
I to am excited and looked forward to exchanging info with you. I have worked for quite a while on my mother's side SCARBOROUGH and MCKINNEY and to often felt like "the baby left on the doorstep."
