I am not a member of the family, but noticed this information in my recent DAR magazine:
"Barbara Franck (born about 1730)(died about 1825) married Colonel daniel Shine II (born May 10, 1729) (died 1801). His wife, Barbara Franck, daughter of John Martin Francke, was of a very distinguished family. They were friends of 'George Washington. Mention of Mrs. Shine is made in the book entitled 'Our Living and Our Deat' in the Raleigh, NC State Library. Th following is quoted 'Colonel Daniel Shine's widow, Barbara Franck Shine, of Cypress Creek, North Carolina, lived to th great age of ninety five years. She entertained George Washingon when he made his famous southern trip.' In 2001 Shine Home, located in Comfort, NC, will celebrate its 200th anniversary. The Shine home was built about 1801 by Colonel James Shine (son of Daniel Shine) a prominent planter and a member of the State Senate (1815-1817) It seems reasonable that after the original shine Inn burned, Barbara Franck Shine, and elderly widow, would have lived with her son, James Shine. Possibly helping to entertain President Monroe & Secretary of War Calhous in 1819, as well as President George Washington in 1791."
(There is a photograph of the home, as well as one of the steel signs with are along the roadways.) No other information on these people.
