Hi Audry;

Nice to have my query get a response. Your Isaac and my Isaac are not the same Isaac.
My Isaac's name is Isaac Marion Franklin & he was married to my great grandmother
Margaret Steele McClellan.

Taken from my Franklin family records below:



Isaac Marion Franklin b: July 11, 1826 in Burke County, North Carolina d: July 19,
1888 in Putman County, Missouri
.. Margaret Steele Mc Clellan b: August 19, 1829 d: May 16, 1890

My Great Grandparents are listed below as I found them on the net, I've been working on this & I continue to work on this family line to try and track down the sources. I found
the main family line also on a Family Tree Maker C D. It had come from a different source altogether because the names at the bottom, or newest descendants, were different & came down different descendant lines. The main line was still the same except it was missing more of the dates than the Franklin family line that I found on the net. I have my Isaac's family bible & his discharge papers. From the
discharge papers I found out where he was born & middle name. All I knew ahead of that was that his middle initial was M. Everything seems to hook up, right birth location,
wife's name, wedding date, death dates, and birth dates. Isaac's birth date was exactly 1 year off. It had the correct day & month July 11, but wrong year exactly 1 year off.
Isaac's bible listed July 11, 1826 & the information on the net listed July 11, 1825. Isaac served in the Civil War for 3 years. Any information or corrections welcome. I'm trying
to tie down some sources to check out . If you can add to this feel free too. I am looking for help. I would share what I have on my Isaac's family.

I can't guarantee everything below because I still working on it. I'll post it so it may help others. Any help is appreciated.

Surnames: FRANKLIN, PARKER, BURNS, TAYLOR
I have information but if differs somewhat from yours. My husband is also a descendant of Isaac Franklin.
Isaac b ? Burke Cty, NC m. Hannah taylor b 1820-22 d. aft. 1870
Son of Samuel b 1780 Burke Cty NC d 1857 Linville Falls, Burke County (now Avery Cty), NC m. Dorcas Barbara Burns Aug. 6, 1800 Michlenburg Cty. She born 1774 in Burke Cty and d. 1857 in Linville Falls.
son of John b. June 2, 1727 Boston, Suffolk Cty, MA d. Sept. 30, 1818 Connelly Springs, Burke Cty, NC m. Phebe Parker d/o Nathaniel b. 1731, d 1821 Connelly Springs, NC. They probably married in Washington Cty VA in 1758. John was s/o John Sr and he the son of Josiah Franklin father of the statesman, Benjamin Franklin. This is all info I have gathered but take it all with grain of salt - Which of Isaac's children do you descend from?

Surnames: Franklin, Dellinger
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.
