When asking for a lookup, please provide as much information
as possible, giving full names and dates if possible. Be sure
to include which reference you are referring to when sending in
your request and put the words "Franklin County Lookup"
in your subject line. Please do not send in a blanket request,
for example: looking for all of the Jones in Franklin County-we
are volunteers, not paid researchers! Your request should be limited
to one name per request and please be sure to thank the volunteer
for their time!

- I am currrently putting together a list of the people
buried in the Coble graveyard in St. Thomas. I suspect this has

We are photographing the gravestones and trying to decipher all
of the inscriptions.
