I've just joined this mailing list and this is the first message I've received.
I don't have direct knowledge of FRANKUMs in the south, however in the past few years I have been in touch with other researchers that
have FRANKUMs in KY & GA.
My traceable FRANKUM line starts in Chester county, PA in late 1700's and moves west to Indiana, Ohio, Missouri, Kansas. There is
some indication that perhaps a John & Mary Frankum went to Virginia around 1810 and weren't heard from since. For more, please
contact me. My line follows:
