Sam was the twin of his sister Nancy Margaret Franks (Compton).

Sam Died in the care of Allie Templeton. Before he died he left the the Crisp Family Bible with Frances Templeton (Gaulden). One of the pages has this inscription, "This book is inherited for my son Samuel A. Franks. From his Mother, Lucy G. Franks, March 22nd, 1889. This was my Fathers book. L.G.F."

When Frances T. Gaulden passed, her family gave it to the Crisp Family, and retained copies of all the family information within. The Crisp family was given the bible with the understanding that they would have it restored and keep it safe.
