I am searching for the other siblings of Benjamin Franklin (both of them) If you know of anyone related by this quick description I have given please contact me.
I would love to hear from anyone with the same surname or anyone who has any further information on any of these individuals that I have listed above.

Also, i would love to find out who John Nicewander's parents were, and if he had any siblings other than the Samuel we have hard about.

Please contact me, I would be most grateful.
