My Francis line was in Ohio by the 1830's, certainly in the US. My message was posted in the 'Adams Co Ohio' Forum, SO, the state is Ohio. FRANCIS in my database starts with: William Francis b 1757 Philadelphia, PA; d Abt 1839 Bourbon Co, KY; m Sarah Rogers. I am descended from their son, Caleb Moses Francis b 04 Jan 1808 Paris, Bourbon Co, KY; d 06 Feb 1889 Adams Co, OH; m 08 Oct 1834 to Martha Ruggles (b 16 Oct 1818)
Currently researching mainly: Henderson, Pollard,(Rader) and Franklin at this time which is my father's line. Morrison, Francis, Bradford is mother's line.
