Removed undocumented, unsourced parents. Seeking documentation other than heresay gedcom import. Please note, this is our second time to remove Owen Franklin being linked as the father of this Owen. Please read the will of Owen you are attaching as the father--the Owen named in his will is NOT a Franklin, he is the son of Owen's wife prior to their marriage, surname FLOYD. Please add/link only that which can be documented and add your documentation/source to his page. Thank you.
