At this point, I'd be hard pressed to prove it, but that is what I think. The 1860 census reflecting 72 year old Catherine in the household of Benjamin and Edney pretty much establishes Catherine's birth year, ca 1788. That matches well with 1786 as the birth year of Benjamin Franklin s/o Eli. The 1860 census also reflects 1800 as the birth year of Benjamin Shipley who married Margaret Miller, birth year 1804.
For the latter two, tombstones inscriptions say 12 Mar 1800 and 5 Apr 1806, respectively. WRT your initial post, James s/o Benjamin of Jonesboro could be a good match for father of Benjamin who married Margaret Miller, considering the time line and the fact that they were born in Washington County.
