Benjamin Franklin Folk was first married to Nilla Grubbs. Estelle Purvis was his second wife. I have no record of any children they may have had. He had the following siblings: John William Folk (1878-1949), George Mack Folk (1877-1963), May Folk (1883-1940), Julius Norman Folk (1886-1940), Lillian Folk (died 1959), Daniel Jefferson Folk (born 1891), Carrie Cleo Folk (1895-1940), and Kahron Folk.

Benjamin Franklin Folk was the son of Simeon Peter Folk (1848-1916). He is buried in Williston SC. One of Simeon’s brothers was my great-grandfather. Simeon Peter Folk was the son of George Michael Folk (1808 – 1852), who was the son of Jacob Folk (1772-1845) buried in Ehrhardt, SC. His father was also named Jacob Folk, and he was born in 1720, emigrated from Europe to South Carolina in 1740, and died in 1777.

I have a more extensive genealogy of the Folk family if you are interested.
