I have their childrens information too if you need it.

I'm sure that you have seen from my posting that I have an interest in this
family, because John Franks raised my ggrandmother, Rebecca Jane Denton and
her two siblings.......following the death of their father at the Battle of
Atlanta, Inman Park on 22 July 1864.

I have always hoped that through the interchange with Franks descendants,
that I might find the whereabouts of my Denton ancestors. All are
unaccounted for, with the exception of Samantha Denton and she married John
Jeffery. The third sibling, Lemuel Jeff Denton has never been found, as of

So, I would be real happy to see you post the children of John Wesley
Franks.......if you wouldn't mind too much. Afterall, you may have just that
hidden factor that might be a clue for further research.

I appreciate it, Ralph.
