Franklin County is where my fathers family is from and I am looking for as much information as possible on them. My grandmothers name is Mamie Dixon Cooper and she was married to Walter Cooper. Walter died in 1993 in I think Elkin North Carolina. As far as I know they both were born and raised in Franklin County. I don't know if they got married there or not. They did leave there and moved to Winston-Salem North Carolina. They had 4 children: Jean Cooper Scott, Betty Cooper Yokley, Bonnie Cooper Watts, and Kenneth Maynard Cooper my father. I do have family on both grandparents side of the family who still live in Franklin but I do not know any names. There are several great aunts, uncles, and cousions.

I have recently came upon some family history of the Hales in Franklin County Va. My G.G.Grandfather was Alfred Hale b. 1815 in TN. but his father was Francis Marion Hale b. 1782 in Franklin County Va. he married Sarah Pickett Aug. 10, 1802 and had two children by her Elizabeth B. and Jeremiah Pickett Hale, he then married Priscilla Lamb, and had 10 children by her, which included my gggrandfather Alfred. Jeremiah died in Pikeville, TN. and Alfred died in Union County, IL. In 1890. I have a good line on the descendants of Alfred, but very little on the others. I found where goes back to Nicholas Hale b. abt. 1670 in Va. He died Mar. 29, 1730 in Va. Do you know of any history on this family in Franklin County Va. The family included the Honorable Nathaniel Burwell and The Honorable Lewis Burwell. Who were the Burwells and what was the Honorable for? Any information about these families would be most appreciated.

The 1870 Franklin County census lists all these families living in the Brownhill Township. I am descended from all these families. But a mystery has come up. Could someone please tell me the names of the parents of Mary Lucinda Pyrtle, b. 1857, who m. John Stone, b. 1831? Marriage records, 19 Oct 1875, say that her parents were James and Mary E. Prytle. However, older family members insist her father was William P. Pyrtle. A William Pyrtle and Mary were listed in the 1860 Franklin Co. census with a child, Mary L., 3, which would have been about the right age, but I did not find them in the 1870 census. However, a James and Mary E. Price were listed in the 1850 Franklin county census, and those were the parents on the marriage register. If anyone has info to clear up this mystery, I would be very grateful. Thank you.
