       After Starting my research into my own Family Pedigree of Fosters I realized I could also 
help my wife Brenda with hers inspired by her mother Ella Sue Franklin Rice (1917-2013).
 
This site is authored by William L Foster. 
 
William & Brenda (Rice ) Foster maybe contacted @  wlfgenealogy@yahoo.com  (07/18/2013). 
    
 Dedicated to the Memory of our Brave Pioneer Families who Migrated to the Appalachian Mountains
"Smoky Mountains ". & Brenda's Mother Ella Sue Franklin- Rice.

    
           Years before there was a Pisgah National Forest , Civil War , Biltmore Estates , Gatlinburg ,
 I-26 and  I-40 and Land Speculators / Retirement & Golf Community Developers . Our Families  moved 
into the Appalachian Mountains area now referred to as the Smoky Mountains of WNC & East Tenn. 
**Families with the names of Franklin , Shelton , Wallin , Rice , Norton , Sevier , Tweed, Chandley , Hensley,
Justice , Henderson , & others. Pioneer families & settlers whose Family Roots primarily were in England's 
Ireland Wales & Scotland. Many with Families whose history can be traced back before William of Normandy 
won at the Battle of Hastings when they entered Briton to help in the Norman Invasion while others were 
already there waiting having been in the British Isles long before the Romans  held  the Land. Families  
who came to the American Colonies during the 1600s thru thr 1700s. Many came for the chance at finding 
precious Gems and Gold while others were looking to have their own land farming , trapping , hunting 
& of course fishing the Streams for Trout !  
           Looking at the time frame of Migration to the Appalachian Mountains  many of the Families members
fought during & thru Revolution at The Battle of Kings Mountain & other Battles in the Carolinas such as Guildford 
Courthouse then later moved into the Mountains west of what then was Colonial Rowan Co., Burke Co., Mecklenburg Co.
 & then Tryon Co. N.C. Many having moved South West via the The Great Philadelphia Wagon Road 
to Colonial Rowan Co.,N.C. (Salisbury ) & Mecklenburg Co ,N.C. Refer to the map @
http://philnorf.tripod.com/mapofthe.htm  Map of the Great Philadelphia Wagon Road.
           This report is also a point of Discussion of the Family names of Brenda Rice Foster starting with :
Were Brenda's Franklin family descendants of  Benjamin Franklin's father "The Immigrant Josiah Franklin"
via a Burke Co NC Franklin Connection ?" (Not Likely per Ben Franklin @ http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~ffru/ 
in  an email 7-20-2006 to this writter ) " With regard to the myth that John Franklin, Sr. of Burke County, NC was kin to the Statesman, 
this myth has been thoroughly debunked.  See FFRU Volume 6." With the help of Ben I found Brenda's Franklin line
@ FFRU Volume 35. But Where did they come from to get to the WNC / East Tenn Mountains ?  Maybe Vol 6 of
FFRU will give us the leads we need.
           Family Legends told over and over again became accepted as facts especially The Legend  of William Duckworth Franklin
alias " Duck Shelton " and "William Duckworth Shelton". His pedigree has been questioned and reputation defamed making many 
believe his Franklin descendants are actually Sheltons ( Willaim D Franklin was not a son of Roderick Shelton as some believe or claim )
Yes most Descendants of William Duckworth Franklin are also Descendants of Roderick Shelton via a related family line that married
 
into Rodericks Family !  If you disagree then contact me by E-mail and we will discuss the topic.
    
           Maybe DNA testing of a direct descendant of William Duckworth Franklin will tell us. But until then lets use logical thinking 
 
in  our research for the look at The Shelton , Rice and Franklin Family History which tells of a Mary Polly Stevens mid 1750s who 
 
was of Native American Blood . First  If she was Native American it had to be a tribe ( BAND ) in Colonial Va or NC Piemont 
and not the WNC / East Tenn Mountains. We have been told she had a son by Willard (William ) Franklin who was possibly
the son of  ( Jacob & Caroline Franklin of Burke Co NC ). Mary named a son William Duckworth Franklin b : Tenn. or WNC. Another
son she named George Washington "Rock" Franklin. Some Franklin & Shelton Family Genealogist have claimed these sons of Mary
were fathered by Revolutionary Soldier Roderick who later settled on Shelton Laural Madison Co N.C. But we do know 
Roderick Shelton was married to Sarah Briggs & she was having his children. We ask then if they were sons of Roderick
then why not name them William Duckworth Shelton & George W Shelton ? Logic would say they were the sons 
of a Burke Co NC area Franklin and raised as Step sons of Roderick Shelton. We do believe the Franklins followed
General John Sevier into Carolina & Tenn, since Brenda's a descendant of John Servier via the Rice, Franklin ,
& Tweed lines. Mary ( Glumdaclitch ) actually was living as the wife of Soloman Stanton
who I believe was a Friend of Roderick Shelton ( He appears to be the father of George Washington Franklin & Rhoda )
              Via Rootsweb we do know the son of Thomas Franklin b: Ecton Co,Northamptonshire, England was 

Josiah Franklin b: 1657 in England d: 1745 Boston Mass. Josiah was a Soap and Candle maker who Fathered
 
17 children (10 ) of whom were boys (one who was Benjamin ) b:17 Jan 1706. For the next 3 Generations the Franklin
Family was very prolific. Our Research shows Josiah's Son John & Ben Franklin's brother's family line possibly did move to
Colonial Va. Some Franklin Family WFTs imply John of Josiah Franklins line actually moved to Burke Co NC. while
while other WFT reports state he didn't and this was another Franklin line from an Immigrant to Charleston S.C. Actually
my research says John Franklin did settle near Linville N C and moved into Yancy Co, Bucombe Co , and Madison Co NC 
as well as neighboring  East Tenn  Counties connecting Madison Co along The Ridge / State line 
A John Franklin married a member of the Gooch Family of Mass. Per The History of John Franklin, Terry & Gurney Franklin 
"John The Nephew of Benjamin Franklin appeared on the size roll of Washington's army as having been occupied as a sailor " 
But Per The Statesman / Patriot Benjamin Franklin his brother was lost at Sea. A John Franklin of Fort Stump Va who 
moved to Burke Co NC had a very prolific family who moved into Smoky's to Tenn before James Roderick Shelton settled there.
Capt John & Capt Jesse Franklin & Stephen Franklin's names  are found are on the Muster List with the Seviers
( John & Valentine Sevier ) , a John Duckworth & William Walling. A list for further reference can be found @ 
a Web Site page   "Battle of Kings Mountain Patriot Roster October 7, 1780" Web Page creator, Trisha Carden.
http://www.tcarden.com/tree/ensor/kingsmountainroster.html#Man also http://www.bryansite.com/cross/fox1al.htm.
            Mary Stevens- Franklin " Gumdaclitch " named her son William Duckworth Franklin so we need to 
look for the Duckworth Family connecting with the Franklins. Our research via Rootseweb has found   
the family of  John D Duckworth of early 1700 Burlington,Co. N.J. married Sarah Hankins  moved to Colonial Va 
then to North Carolina during the same time period Josiah Franklin's Descendants moved to the Same area. 
This move using the Great Philadephia Wagon Road. Dr J.B. Turner has a good report @ Rootsweb which tells 
of the Duckworth Family. Mary " Glumdaclitch" I beieve met the Franklins & Duckworths most likely in Va or Burke Co
N.C. Then she met Roderick Shelton in WNC . For several Years I William Foster can find no record of a Shelton 
(especially Roderick Shelton or James Rodrick Shelton) fighting on the side of the Colonial Troops at Kings Mountain 
with John Sevier ! But at Kings Mountain there were Franklins, Stephens and a Duckworth. Whereas some 
Shelton Sources have implied A Shelton ) was at Kings mountain (see web page report )
 http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~smokymtnman/shelton/pafg11.htm#5 )
             
    The Marriage of the Franklin and Gooch families is important for this study to show the history of the WNC
Franklins & Rices since William P Rice also married a Gooch. The Franklins  moving from Mass > 
Viriginia > Burke County N.C. > Smoky Mountains WNC / Tenn. at the same time the Sheltons moved to the Mountains
            I have found a Marriage between a Franklin & Duckworth in 1888 in Burke Co NC ( ANNA DUCKWORTH 
m: Josephus General Franklin   
           Mary Stevens Franklin reported to be Native American could have been Shawnee, Chickasaw, or Creek.
She was allegedly called Glumdaclitch and who nicked named her Glumdaclitch  is a Mystery. It could have been William
(Williard Franklin or Roderick Shelton ) actually no one knows but allot of possiblities have been put forth. 
What we have found is The Pioneers of The Revolution included well read self educated & schooled  Persons.
Per an Article by "Theodore Roosevelt" on Daniel Boone Gullivers travels was a widely told  story enjoyed by the explorers. 
The Character "Glumdaclitch" was a female who took care of Gulliver in the Story.

    
            While Daniel Boone was Exploring some of his Fellow Pioneers were fond of story telling including stories about 
the Character Glumdaclitch. http://www.nationalcenter.org/BoonebyRoosevelt.html  So the name Glumdaclitch was giving
to more than one Native American Female who befriended the Colonial Pioneers During Hostile times.
             Roderick Shelton m SARAH URSULA BRIGGS abt 1775  in Colonial Pittsylvania CoVa before they moved to the 
 
Western North Carolina  Mountains were they raised 12 children between 1775 thru 1797. Sarah Shelton died after 1820
 
 in Shelton Laurel.  Meanwhile during the marriage of Roderick and Sarah Shelton we find Mary Stevens Franklin is 
 
allegedly welcomed into the Shelton household possibly to care for Sarah or help take care of Roderick & Sarah's children. 
 
Mary we assume was a Widow or separated from the father of her son  William who  was born in 1796 the year before 
 
Sarah Shelton gave birth to her final Child Elizabeth & before Mary came to live with  Sheltons. 
 
                During My Research I have been able to use a English settlers chart by my distant Cousin Gary Foster
 
 who has the WebSite Surnames . com. (   http://foster.surnames.com   ). Gary has developed a Chart for the " Colonial English Naming Patterns" used during & thru the 1700s & 1800s. This chart 
 
allows a logical look at repeated first names used to name sons and daughters 
http://foster.surnames.com/foster_research_project/english_naming_patterns.htm  The name William / Willard is used allot
 
 for Males in the  Franklin Family especially in Va but not the Shelton Family.  Roderick Shelton moved from Va to what is 
 
now Madison Co NC with his children born in Virginia and his children's names reflect his family : example is the name of his sons
 
 Martin , Armistead & his son Roderick Jr. 
 
                    Looking at William Duckworth Franklin's family we find children and descendants named similar to the Franklins in Burke Co 
 
 & Caldwell Co .  a daughter is even named for his mother Glumdaclitch ; another daughter is named Caroline  But the biggest hint for 
 
a Burke County line connection is the name "Love " . In Madison County a Direct descendant of William Duckworth Franklin  via  son
 
 Russell is Love Joy Franklin while  living in Yancy County in a separate Franklin line is Gariel Love Franklin Grandson of Samuel  Joseph 
 
Franklin of Linville , Burke Co N.C .  

    

    

    
            

    
      Next this look at the Descendant Lines to Brenda's Generation

    
              I first was told by my Mother - in -law  " We are related to John Servier !" --
So I researched for the link. Yes John Servier connects to the WNC Franklins. 

    
 John Sevier "Nolichucky Jack"
Governor of the State of Franklin & Six Times Governor of Tenn.

    

    
Father of John Servier is the First Generation: 
( 1 ) Valentine Servier was born in England 1702 . He immigrated to the America
             Valentine became an American Patriot. He had son John.
 ( 2 )  John Sevier first married m: Catherine Sherrill b: 1756 
              then married Sarah Hawkins :  (Brenda's family line )
           John Sevier fathered a Daughter Rebecca b: 1777 second Youngest of his children
      ( 3 ) Rebecca Sevier  b: 1777 m: John Waddell  & had a Daughter Sarah Rebecca Waddell 
 
           ( 4 ) Sarah Rebecca Waddell b: 25 Apr 1796 d: 06 May 1883 she m: 1815 Abraham Haire b: 07 Jan 1796
                    They had a daighter Elizabeth L. Haire b: 13 Sep 1825 in BucombeCo N.C
                  ( 5 ) Elizabeth m:  JohnCHANDLEY 21 May 1842 and they lived in Madison Co NC
                           Elizabeth Haire & John Chandley had a Child Nancy Jane Chandley b: Jul 1843
                       ( 6 ) Nancy Jane m: 17 Apr 1859 Newton M Tweed b: Mar 1840 (son of1Reuben Tweed b: 1818 NC)
                        & Caroline Franklin b: Mar 1821) Caroline was the daughter of William D Franklin aka "Duck Shelton" & 
                      Nancy Bowman. Newton Tweed & Nancy Jane had a Daughter :Emily Alice Tweed 
                         in Madison Co NC Emily was b:01 Feb 1862.
                            ( 7 ) Emily Alice Tweed  m: William Spencer Rice b: 01 Nov 1859 the son of Jesse Siler Rice &
                         Bridget Garland. Emily Alice Tweed & William Spencer Rice had a daughter Pearl Rita Rice b: 04 Jan 1893 .
                             ( 8 ) Rita Pearl Rice m: Richard Mont Franklin b: 22 Dec 1892 (son ) of Andrew (Andy ) J Franklin
                           & Martha Jane Shelton daughter of Joseph Shelton & Barbara Hensley.
                          Rita Pearl Rice and Richard Franklin are Brenda Fosters Grandparents via Ella Sue Franklin Rice.

           William Duckworth Franklin did use the alias "Duck Shelton". He was Born 1796 
  William m: Nancy Bowman in Tenn.They had a Family in Madison Co prodominately Male Children.
  His family history was a mixture of English Franklins and Native American Heritage. 
  He was raised after his father's death as a step son of Roderick Shelton in Shelton Laurel Madison Co ,N C.
  He appears to have a relative Bentley Franklin b: 1817 there living near him in Madison Co NC who married 
  Nancy Shelton Norton b: Jan 1825 in Shelton Laurel. Bentley Franklin's father was Jacob Franklin born
  1792 Burke Co NC. I recently looked at reports for the Bentley Franklin and found Franklin Family reporters
  have alleged Mary "Glumdaclitch" was married to a John Franklin rather than a William or Willard Franklin .
  There ARE SEVERAL repoprts to LDS sites identfying  William Duckworth Shelton's mother as the Grt 
   Grandmother of Bentley Franklin who married Nancy Shelton living in  Shelton Laurel Madison Co NC.

    
 

    
      Franklins were followers and fellow pioneers with John Sevier.

                  Many Family Genealogist like to use reports with Descendant list but
I find it's easier for the reader to lookk frist at the present and backward.
