started this project as a lame attempt for high school history class
in 1976. My sister got me interested again when she wanted
to know what happened to the project.
She was trying to find
out the family history and why the Frankenfields from Williams Township
weren't related to other Frankenfields in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
There is the theory that they were horse thieves from Ohio!
In fact my great grandfather's
brother William Forrest Frankenfield was
born in Ohio. William was known as "Uncle" in William
Township, he married late in his life, after his step sister and
mother passed on.
In fact our branch did move to Ohio
and then moved back! As I'm researching the project, I'm discovering
that we are related to more then first lead to believe. The
good, the bad and the ugly and the famous.
If your a descendant of Simon
Frankenfield, then your related to William
Clark Gable. Clark starred in a little known film called
"Gone with the Wind". You may have heard of it.
My sister even stated I went to far,
when I found that my parents who are divorced are related through
the Miller's genealogy.
I had two grandfather's in the Civil
War. Andrew Beam who fought
for NJ and Isaac Fox who fought for
PA. There have been another, William
Strunk, the family legend has the he went to the great war and
never returned. I can not find any record of him after 1862.
I have also found several grandfather's
in the Revolutionary War, Hans Heinrich
Frankenfield, Michael Walter
