Hi, I was just at the Hill county courthouse last week researching my Franklin line who lived in the county in th late 1800's. I copied all the births, deaths, probates, marriages I could find with the Franklin name. May take me awhile to get it all organized but once I do I will post it all on this site. I can tell you I found no birth records prior to 1903. The first Franklin birth record I found was a Franklin (no first name)born 9-26-1903 parents listed as Bud and Ann Franklin.
