Motton Franklin:

All I can say is that Emma my G.G.Grandmother was married to William Nicholson from Va. Emmas mother was Dorothy Anne/Anne Taylor from Henry Co. Va. She did go by the name of Ann as well. This is the history given to me. Emma had a daughter name Viola Frances and she married a Franklin. Ann was married to John yes and his father Thomas- was born in Va. We have the correct info. Not sure if you know this but Anne was a mulatto.

Motton Franklin:

The first in the US was Thomas Lancaster born 1793 died around1854 . He was married to Susan Chapman born around 1795. My great aunt says our other decendant was married to a Elizabeth Spencer of Brede born 1690.she advised it is the same family after she checked further. I did have Peasmarsh, Sussex written down and may have made a mistake earlier with the location after looking at the family tree again.

Please look at the reply to Caroline Selmes posted by Martha Franklin. I am a decendant and Ann Selmes was my 6th Great Grandmother. I am a decendat of the Lancasters by blood and her husband Thomas was my 6th Great Grandfather. I accidently told Caroline he was the 8th but it was actually the 6th. I have traced back to the 15th Century.

Motton Franklin:

Hi,

I did the search back to the 1500s. Ok, the first was John Lancaster 1768 born in Essex, Eng. He was married to Susan Parrott. He died in Bedford,Va. in1815. His son was Thomas Lancaster 1763 VA. died in 1/11/1854, married to Susan Chapman. They had a son, John Lancaster 1827 died in Va. I think Mayo Va.5/1/1910. He was married to Anna (Taylor) Lancaster a Mulatto from V. They had 5 achildren one of whom was my great grandmother, Emma born 1874 in VA. Her siblings were, Robert-1864, John-1873, George-1875 and Elizabeth-1879. They were all born at Horse Pasture, Henry Va. including the parents, John and Anna. Emma had a daughter, Viola I think from an unk. man. Emma eventually married a William Nicholson from Va. Viola became the Step-daughter of William. Viola was was my father's mom. My name is Martha Franklin. I did the Lancaster's because I could get not far on the Franklin side. Emma also had two other children William and Augusta. She and William Nicholson had a child as well together.
