  • November 15, 2017: Benjamin Franklin Hiding in the Family Tree - Leaves & Branches
    Benjamin Franklin, 1706 – 1790, was a Founding Father of our country. He was also a leading author, printer, political theorist, politician, freemason, postmaster, scientist, inventor, humorist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat. Long after Benjamin’s death some branches of my family named their sons after Benjamin.

    Recently I posted about the George Washingtons in my family tree a friend saw the post on FaceBook and he made a comment about Benjamin Franklin. Well, Russ, here are a few Benjamins for you.

    Benjamin Franklin Barton      1904-1992    son of Yearby Franklin Barton & Ophelia Kemp

    Benjamin Franklin Ellzey       1827-1904    son of John Ellzey & Elizabeth Coney

    Benjamin Franklin Ritter        1835-1884    son of Michael Ritter & Eloisa Miller

    Benjamin Franklin Wolf         b 1833           son of Andrew Wolf & Catherine Dick
