Biography

Jane White, who married farmer/blacksmith Thomas Franklin, was born in January 1617 in Ecton, Northamptonshire, England.[1] They were the parents of 10 children, including Josiah E. Franklin, who was the father of the American Statesman, and signer of the Declaration of Independence, Benjamin Franklin. The latter was born in Boston, English Province of Massachusetts Bay, New England.

  2. Mac/McPherson of PA, Ladd of Maine and Related Families on RootsWeb - Jane White Updated: 2017-01-04 11:25:13 UTC (Wed). This family genealogy states that Jane's mother's maiden name was: "Sarah Jane Hulster" - no sources given.
  • "Franklin Family" on Aylesworth.net NOTE: This 2ndy but-well-researched source states Jane (White) Franklin died at Ecton, Northamptonshire, England, on September 1, 1696. That is clearly mistaken as Thomas Franklin, who died in 1682, is known to have had a 2nd wife after Jane White, who was mother of all his children, died.

The rootsweb sources are not stating her birth place. One refs FAG.
