Hello fellow brick workers,

This is a 25 year mystery and hoping someone might have a Henry Frankfort in their tree.
Henry Frankfort, born 1799(?). Married Elizabeth Bishop of Southampton, LI, had my 2nd great grandmother Maggie and 5 others.
Census records (2 of them) has Henry born in Pennsylvania, But his children can be found all around Suffolk Co.
I believe Elizabeth died between 1850 and 1860, for he remarried Elizabeth Hallock, no issue. The Hallock got thrown into the tree, tough I don't think it is bloodline, just a late in life marriage.
A Photo Album, presented to Maggie Frankfort in 1863 from her "cousin" Benjamin Franklin Hallock (Died in Civil War), has pictures of Harmon Frankfort, as well Mabies and Felters who are related to Henry's children. That's a mystery, but if Elizabeth Bishop died in 1850-1860, and Henry remarried Elizabeth Hallock, yes, they would be "step-cousins", unless possibly related by the Bishop marriage and her Family.
All this takes place near Southampton, Long Island. I also have a letter written in 1883, to Inez Olmstead (Maggie's Daughter, my great grandmother) from a Grandma HALLOCK, Box 156, Southampton, telling Inez the "Uncle" Harmon and "Uncle" Andrew Frankfort of just going to work. You can see how a head can spin with the step family in the mix…
So my question is a short one. Who were Henry Frankforts parents?
I know that Frankfort is spelled 3 or more different ways (we all can relate to that!) Frankford. Frankforth, and even Heinrich Frankforter, if he just stepped off the ship. lol
Well, I wished he was a Smith, because I would have a dead ends out the ole you know what, there isn't a lot of Frankforts out there, so I would think this would be easy…Thinking is my problem…It's better to think in groups of 3…
Thank you all for taking the time, and I sincerely wish much luck to everyone!
