     John Abdiel Franklin was born circa March 1860 at Carroll Co., MD.1 He was the son of Charles Wesley Franklin and Mary Catherine Kitzmiller.1 John Abdiel Franklin died after 1874 Per Tracy Devault:

John Franklin, age 4 months, listed in the 1860 Census and "Abdail" Franklin, age 11, listed in he 1870 Census, appear to be the same person. Abdiel is mentioned in the will of his father (1874). One genealogy says he went by Thomas Albert Franklin. There does not seem to be any record of John Abdiel Franklin after he is mentioned in his father's will.

In Memoriam

JENKINS -- In Loving memory of my dear Sister, Lelia Jenkins, who departed this life nine years ago, December first, 1928.

While twilight dews were falling
Upon the brow of love,
We knew the Savior was calling
Her to the heavenly home above.

The years of her life were numbered
When the Messenger whispered low,
The Master has come and called for thee;
She answered: "I am ready to go."

On the river a pale boatman hastened,
She heard the soft dip of his oar,
Then from earth and sorrow he bore her
Across to that beautiful shore.

Loving Sister,
Mrs. Charley Bair.
