	NOTE TO RESEARCHERS:  The above Abraham Franklin may or may not 
	be a blood relation of the submitter who is researching the Lewis
        Franklin family of Henry Co., VA.  A Lewis Franklin appears on the
        tax rolls of Henry Co., VA in 1782 and then continuously from 1791
        through 1830.  Lewis Franklin is listed as a slave holder owning
        2 slaves beginning in 1799 in Henry Co., VA and it is possible 
        these may be the same as listed above, but this is unproven at the
        time of this submission (28 Feb 1999).  This Lewis Franklin was a
        soldier of the NC and VA line during the American Revolution.
