I sent for the 1896 choctaw citizenship application for A.A.
Spring who is the son of John S Spring. I have the papers now. I am a Franklin Decendant. There are 21 notarized affidavits listed on these papers and one written by John S
Spring dated 1883. He was applying for his lineal decendants based upon his mother Mary Franklin who was married to William Spring. Mary was the daughter of Henry
Franklin whose mother was Jemima Morris. All of these state that Jemima Morris was full blood choctaw. My gt gt gt Grandfather was James Franklin who was Jemima's youngest son. In Rankin county Mississippi it does list an older woman living with James. but we always assumed it was his mother. James Franklin married Mary Chapman in St. Tammany
Parish Louisiana, before they moved to Rankin County, Mississippi. I am still somewhat confused also. But, I was hoping that some of this information will help. I do know that I cannot find out who the parents of Mary Chapman
(The one who married James Franklin.) I have some other info that may help if it is studied, such as parts of the book written by Dr. Jesse Edward Franklin in 1963.
I really would like to find the answer to this.
