Hi Diane. Your Joseph L. Franklin with wife Marilda and 8 month old son William C.(born in Tenn) is on the 1880 Collin Co., Tex census. Marilda "appears" to be from the Bedford Co., Tenn Andertons who have the same set of names (Peter, Mariah, Marilda, William, Ira, Nathan), are related to COX but appear to be a generation too old. Maybe we can connect them in Coffee Co., Ala.
What info do you have on your people connecting them to Coffee Co., Ala?
