New member introducing myself

Hi, I am a direct descendant of Gov Bradford of the Mayflower and have traced my relationship all the way back.  My paternal grandmother was a Bradford so its real direct.   I also have Franklin on my maternal side, but have reached a road block in trying to get into the 1700’s. From what I have so far, the last one is Horatio Franklin, born in 1790?  but nothing before that.  He was born in Connecticut, probably around the Pomfret area.  He married a Mary L born about 1789, but no maiden name.  I was always told that somehow we were related. To Benjamin Franklin, but have not found a link.  I do have several Benjamin Franklins in the lineage but....  Then again my greatgrandfather Parrish was Benjamin Franklin Parrish. Popular name.   If anyone has a clue I sure would appreciate the info!! Only side I have had a block in. I figure they came from England at the time of the surge over, but no records come up.  Thanks

I have that info....I am having trouble finding his parents and any siblings.  I did find that a lot of records were destroyed from the area during that time when searching the Connecticut birth records.
I thought you were looking for her maiden name which is Smith.
