I have a theory that im gonna toss out and see what happens. Ive been researching Franklin R Tower (1815-1870) Ive found him in a few censes. The one in Louisiana 1860 with wife Elizabeth. (He is listed in the Tower Genealogy Book with this wife also)age 42. with children Wm E, Franklin, & Charles.Now here comes another wife without mention in the book.In the 1850, Federal Census. 4th district, Louisville ward 7, Jefferson COunty, Kentucky . List the name of Franklin R TOwer (age 32) with wife Charlotte Tower (age 25 from Germany)and son (sp?) Malcome age 2 is listed.Now according to the book, Franklin married Elizabeth 1853. So my question is, is there another family branch out there from this line? DO you think this is my same Franklin R? If so what happened to Charlotte and her son? Any ideas or thoughts..
