Succumbing to an illness of only ten days duration, Charles G. Franklin died Wednesday morning at 8:45 at the home of his daughter-in-law, Mrs. Nellie Franklin, in Janesville where he had resided for three years.

Mr. Franklin was born on March 8, 1833, in Morristown, New York. When ten years old he moved to Beloit with his parents, and since that time has resided in that vicinity and Clinton, except for the few years spent in Perry, Iowa.

In 1859, he was united in marriage to Ellen Brand, of Clinton. During most of his life he had been a farmer, and was recognized as a man of sterling character. He was very favorably known in this city and vicinity, where he leaves five nephews, Fred, Frank, Lewis, Leon, and A. G. Franklin and a niece, Mrs. Bourtier Courtier. He is also survived by his wife, and four children.

Funeral arrangements had not been made at the time of our going to press.

Ruth Ann passed along your posting regarding Clara Franklin possibly being related to Charles G. Franklin (1833-1917).

I have been researching a line of Franklin's that settled in southern Wisconsin in the 1840's.

Charles was a brother to Samuel Franklin (1823-1870). Samuel had a daughter, Clara L. Franklin (1864-1927). She married Lelland Burr ("Bert") Courtier (1861-1948).

Another brother was Enos Franklin, who lived out his life in Sioux City, Iowa.

I have been unable to confirm their ancestry, but my belief is these three were sons of Enos Franklin (1794-1871) and Harriet Franklin (1804-??). There may have been another sibling, Silas W. Franklin (1829-1852).

The more complete obit for Charles appeared in an area newspaper. It listed his survivors as:

Spouse (Ellen Brand Franklin -- I have her family history)
Four children:
Mrs. Walter Birdsall (LaJuanta, Colorado)
Mrs. E.C. Tarrant (Prowers, Colorado)
C.E. Franklin (Chicago,Illinois)
H.O. Franklin (East Troy, Wisconsin)

Charles was preceded in death by a son, William G. Franklin (d. January 1895)

Charles and Ellen were married in 1859 at Clinton, WI and farmed near there until moving to Beloit, WI in 1905.

Clara Franklin is my GG grandmother. They had three children; Erle Louis, Hazel Mae and Gladys Marie. Erle is my Ggrandfather. I don't know much about him. But I got to know Erle's wife Ethal Lenora Sweet. She loved to make dolls for me. I still have some that she made me. As far as Clara and Lellan Courtier I don't know anything. If you have any information I would appreciate it. Thanks,
And if I find out anymore information on any body I will let you know. Thanks, Candy

Samuel Franklin (1823-1870) and Charles G. Franklin (1833-1917) had a brother Enos Franklin who left the family farm near Clinton, Rock County, WI circa 1879-80 and lived out his life in Iowa. Enos attended Charles' 50th Wedding Anniversary in Beloit, WI in December 1909. At the time, Enos was a resident of Sioux City, IA. Two women attending the anniversary celebration (maybe his daughters?) were Mrs. Kittie Davis (Moville, IA) and Mrs. Flora Flint (Davenport, IA). Contact me if you want to know more about the Franklin lineage -- I don't have much prior to Samuel/Chas/Enos.
