Frances, When was your greatgrandfather born and where? I have not as of yet come across a Franklin Soles. But then again I am still researching the Soles family line. I travel to North Carolina when I can and do my own research. I live in Delaware. Where do you live? Get back to me if you can. I ll tryto find out what I can for you or at least put you in touch with someone who maybe able to help you.
