I don't have any information on John Franklin Upton's sixteen children. I would love to have information on your father and his sister. Feel feel to contact me directly.
There is some information in the book, "A History of Ozark County, MO, 1841-1991" on George Washington ROGERS (02 Sep 1890-02 Mar 1975) and Chlora Agatha UPTON (13Mar 1891-26 Jan 1973); the daughter of John Franklin UPTON and Safrona Elizabeth SANDERS. They had four children. Do you have that information?
