Thanks! I might have to make a visit to Franklin County someday, but if the records burned, I am out of luck. None of the children of this marriage knew the name of their mother as she died when they were quite young and their father remarried almost immediately. The earliest records for Franklin that I can find are 1875 and the county is not on the 1870 census records, so I am presuming the county was not established until 1875. Fires are the bane of genealogy! Thank you for the info about the fires. You have saved me some dead end hours!
