Biography*   Excerpt from the History of Wayne County, Ohio (1878), Chapter XXX, Salt Creek Township, page: 762

Peter Franks, a native of Fayette county, Pa., was born May 21, 1797, and came to Wayne county August 7, 1820, although he had visited the county in 1816, and that year helped to raise a barn at Robert Hackett's. He remembers the names of those present at that raising, to wit: James and George Hackett, Basil and George Tracey, John Beerbower, Isaac Sowers, George, Solomon and Daniel Firestone, Thomas, William and James Johnson, John and George Brown, James Numbers, David Clark, George and Philip First, Job Lee, Dan Merriman, John S. and Robert Brown, Abner Geddis, Leonard Langell, John and Andrew Moore, and Peter Franks. Besides Mr. Franks, all are dead save Andrew Moore, George Hackett and Robert Brown.2 
Note*   Solomon is listed in the census records with a number of young females in his household. It also appears that his second wife Betsey died shortly before 1830 as a female her age is not found in the household.

The 1850 census shows 4 of these daughter living together: Laura and Minerva who remained unmarried, Harriet who first married Hugh McCance who dies before 1860, and Sarah who married Thomas Alexander. Harriet remarried to John Foutz.
