  • Famsearch says Maiden name CLARA E. WILSON.
  • By 1900 Census, Franks is in Columbus, Ohio, Ward 13, Franklin County with Clara, but everyone else is gone. (look for any messerly in columbus ohio?- Nope- maybe some disease wiped all the kids out? Ok, maybe clara goes to relatives after Franklin dies- find her in 1910, and you find the relatives...Nope- 1910 she is listed as the "aunt" in the Edmund and Ada Drumm household.)
  • Tenative Hypothesis- All the children died before 1900.
  • Unless indicated otherwise, data is and may be verified there by running searches on the given names and dates.
