What I've learned is that my great-grandfather, John R. Penfold had a brother Franklin (or lyn) who was born 3/28/1835 and died 6/5/1896. He was married to a woman named Esther, so if this is your Franklin E. he may have had more than one wife.
The 1850 census lists Nicholas Penfold & wife Margaret Spies in NYC with 3 children: Mary 20, John R. 18, and Franklin 15.
John R. married Frances Brown 11/15/1853 and had 4 kids: William B., Frederick S.(my grandfather), Emma E., and Franklin E. Penfold
I'd love to get whatever information you have so we can fit this puzzle together.
