  • Notes 
    • [Depositions of Della Franklin; 1885 Nebraska Census]


      "Uncle Ben" was born 5 December, 1869, according to Della Franklin in a deposition, however, the 1885 Nebraska Census shows his age at last birthday was 16 which would place his birth in December 186>
      8. In the Port Huron 1870 Census he was three, so probably born in December, 1866.
      Ben was libving with his parents in Ainsworth, Nebraska at the time of the 1885 Nebraska census. He apparently accompanied his parents to Oregon ca 1890, and later moved to Woodland, Washington. >
      He operated a drayage company in Wooodland with at least two teams of horses and two wagons.
      Uncle Ben never married and apparently lived with his parents until around the time of their deaths. During the 1930 census he was a member of the Harry Roddy household in the Los Angeles, Calif>
      ornia, area. He seems to have lived with relatives for most of his life, much like his sister, Aunt Dot [Nita Elizabeth Franklin].
      Uncle Ben died while living with Evelyn & Buss Gordon near Sutherlin, Douglas County, Oregon, sometime in the mid or late 1930's.
