Biography

This Franklin lineage tests into the FY02 group, haplogroup R-CTS6919 of English ancestry and therefore is definitely not Native American. As the two noted claims were both rejected and there is mention of a Green connection, it is highly suspect now that these Franklins will somehow also be connected to John Franklin and wife Sarah Green, a reported descendant of Gardner Green who had some 300 descendants file claims of Native American ancestry coming from him (see Sarah's bio).[1]
