I have been reading with interest the posts old and new about James Franklin 1650. My husband counts him in his family line. He was raised with the idea that his Franklin family is a part of "The Ben's" family. We raised our children with the same idea.I have found where the idea of "Uncle Ben" came from as far as this family is concerned. A man in the 1800's in Lyme NH. who was a historian wrote of a Lewis Franklin, brother of Ben as the father of Record.It should be a John B.1683. I find no Lewis Franklin as a brother of Benjamin Franklin. But a man sent me this and I think it may apply to our family. Our Record Franklin B. 1729 is Ben's first cousin once removed. Records father John, B. 1683 is Ben's first cousin. John's father JAMES B. 1650 is Ben's uncle because James's brother Josiah, B. 1652 is Ben's father. They are the children of Thomas Franklin and Jane white. I am very interested in the relationship between the several Franklin Family's in and around Norton, Rehoboth, and Taunton, Ma. Sandy Franklin
