Thank you JD for this information. I thought it went something
like that. Who was the John Franks that was captured as a little
boy and held as a slave to an Indian Squaw? That was a
misconception in our family...so that made me think there were two
Now..I can vaguely remember my dad saying his gggggg (never know it
it's enough G's.) grandfather was John Martin. This came to
light when a friend of the family had a little boy and named him
John Martin Friesberg. Anyway, he did also mention that his
grandfather had hunted with Daniel Boone. Word or mouth is how
this was all kept.
I've found it very fascinating to see how close the Greer's were
with the Franks and Estes'. As I grew up calling a friend of mom
and dad's Uncle Orville Greer, although no relation to us. He WAS
related to my father-in-law though.
Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. So..we must
be relatives somewhere through the Lail line?
Have a Happy New Year, and thank you for your replies.
