Submitted by: Beth Koehn     Submitted Wed Nov 14 18:55:12 2012

Query:    Franklin West was born and raised in Boone County KY. He married Martha Metcalf (b. 12/6/1842 in Allegheny, PA) about 1858. They had five children - Annie b. 1859 KY, Reuben b. 1/1862, Nettie (b. 9/27/1867 Covington, KY. Frank Linia (b. 10/1869 Boone Cty Female) and Marion Thomas (male, born 2/22/1973 Warsaw, KY. Franklin died between 1873 and 1875 because his wife Martha married Jacob Ashcraft in 1875 and moved to Grant County. Franklin is our brick wall - we can not locate any records on him. He only shows up on the 1860 and 1870 census and no census before that. His son Reuben lived and worked on a farm in Boone County his whole life that we are aware of - our G- Grandmother Nettie lived with him there for a while after her divorce from our g-grandfather. Any help would be appreciated. We lost track of Annie West - Reuben never married, Frank Linia married BEnjamin Luckin and had several children and Marion T. married Lillian Deer for a few years and then he shows as divorced with custody of his son, Marion T. JR.
