Hello I am in this line of the Prouty family. Lyman A. Prouty and Sarah A. Warner were my great grandparents. Harold was my grandfather and my father was Lyman Prouty from Harold's 2nd marriage to Rhoda Morgan. I am doing a lineage of the family and am stumped at the Dorcas Franklin who married Lyman who is William C. Prouty's father. The 1850 and 1870 census say she was born in Rhode Island. I have a Death certificate for William and it confirms that she was born in Bristol, Rhode Island but cannot find a Dorcas Franklin for the 1795 -1797 time frame other than Dean Franklin & Electa Morse's Daughter Dorcas and it doesn't add up to me cause the records say that she was born in Washington, Mass. The info out there on our side of the family is very sketchy. Can anyone help clear this up? Thanks in advance!
