Amanda Franklin is my great great grandmother. She was the mother of several children whose father has yet to be determined.
Those children are:
Dillian Franklin born 1875 in Covington Co, Alabama. Died Unknown.
Pleaspartran T. Franklin born 1877 in Covington Co, Alabama. Married Hettie Joiner. Died Unknown.
Mary Franklin born July 1879 in Covington Co, Alabama. Died unknown, marriage unknown.
William Payton Franklin born June 1890 in Covington Co, Alabama. Died in 1981.
I have not found any records of a marriage for her which leads me to speculate that she was not married when her first child, a son named Dillian was born in 1875. Perhaps this is why her children all have her maiden name which is Franklin and my great grandmother [daughter Rosa] was referred to as her sister.
Sometimes she used the name of Manda or Mandy.
She was a woman of many secrets and whatever they may be she took them to her grave. Sometimes I think it is better to let some things go, if she wanted it known it would have been written down somewhere.
She is listed in the 1920 census with her daughter, my great grandmother Rosa who is listed as "Russell" aged 33, older than her mother. This is another reason I do not take much stock in census records.
