    1-4. The Franklin's
    1-4. The Franklin's
    ~1800 - near Roxbury, Connecticut:

    My great-great grandfather, Charles Franklin, was born in Roxbury, in the western part of Connecticut, probably around 1805 plus or minus ten years. In the mid or late 1830ís Charles met and married a widow, Susan Drock~Churchill [or Chirkin]. They probably met near Walton, Delaware County, New York. Their first child, Henry Franklin, was probably born in or near Walton. They later moved to Allegany County, New York. The family may have lived in Caneadea for a while, but finally settled near South Bolivar, Bolivar Township, Allegany County, New York. They probably lived on the Pennsylvania side of the state line while in South Bolivar.

    Charles Franklin seems to have died late in 1849 or during the first half of 1850, within five or six years after the birth of their youngest son in 1844. Charles and Susan had four children, all sons: Henry, Charles, Reuben Benjamin, and Jeremiah Buel.

    • from Cubby's notes and Kim's notes.
      From Drock;The Lost Family, by Daryl Holmes; from 1840 US Census; from Reuben Franklin's Death Certificate


      Charles Franklin was born in Roxbury, Connecticut around 1805 (+/- 5 ).
      He was Susan Drock's 2nd husband and she had four sons by him. They were probably married around 1837 or 1838. They may have been married in Delaware County, or in Allegany County (or somewhere in>
      between).
      In the 1840 US Census in Bolivar Township, Allegany County, New York, there is a household headed by "C. R. Franklin". There are 6 members of the household; 1 male age 30 to 40 [Mr. Franklin], 1 f>
      emale age 30 to 40 [Susan Drock was born ca. 1807 ~ 33 years old], 1 female age10-15 [Mary Churchill, born 1829 ~ 11 years], 1 female age 5 to 10 [Esther born ca 1832 ~ 8 years], 2 males age less than>
      5 [Henry born ca. 1839 ~ 1 year/ Charles born ca 1840 ~ infant].
      Given the close corellation in number, age & gender of family members, the fact that Reuben Franklin was born in or near Bolivar township in 1841, and the low population of the area it seems highly>
      probable that C.R. Franklin was Susan Drock's 2nd husband, Charles, & Reuben's father.
