Samuel and Dorcas Franklin had a daughter Sarah (Sally) who married Matthias Dellinger my gggrandfather. There is some question as to whether Samuel's father John is the nephew of Benjamin Franklin. According to records Benjamin's nephew was lost at sea. According to the book " John Franklin- An American Hero and his Progeny" our John was the son of David Franklin and Elizabeth Ayers and was born on 6/2/1729. Benjamin's nephew was born in 1716 and would have been 64 when Samuel was born and in his seventies when his youngest was born. And, rather than dying at 90 he would have been 103. To be Benjamin's nephew, our John would have had to survive being lost at sea and then choose to never contact his parents or his wife again.
