    I found a newspaper clipping that said my husband’s family is a descendant of William
    William. I have the family lines but I cannot connect them. Is there someone who can help?

    • jim says:

      Brenda, send the following information to registrar@dsdi1776.com. The Registrar-General will take a look at the data you submit and be able to provide more precise instructions in your quest to find the connection. Start with your husband, his name, his birth date and location. The parent in the line back to the Signer, with the same information; then the grandparent, etc. as far back as you can go. The RG will take this information and attempt to tie it to what is know about the Signer’s descendants. The William Williams family tree is very small, so be prepared for the possibility that the family story regarding being a descendant of the Signer may not be true. It is possible that the line is that of relative, not descendant. In either event, I applaud your efforts to find the right genealogical story.

  2. Cynthia Allsouse says:

    Brenda – I am also a descendent of William Williams. I have just been poking around various sites to see what organizations exist and found your post. How exciting!

  3. Brian Sullivan says:

    I am doing research on my family tree through Ancestry.com because my mother had told me that we were possible descendants of Benjamin Franklin. So far I have tracked as far back as 1814 Horace Franklin. Is there anyway that someone can lend some assistance.

    • jim says:

      Brian, Benjamin Franklin had one son, William, who was a Tory. William had a child by an unknown mistress, William Temple. William Temple died 25 May 1823 without an heir. So the chances of your Horace being connected as a descendant of Benjamin are nonexistant. There is a possibility that the Franklin name may be related to Benjamin’s family but as we do not keep track of the relatives, we cannot really provide you with much assistance in that quest.

      • Sean Jordan says:

        Not arguing that the line on William’s side runs dry, just when:


        According to this Temple had a daughter with his step-sister named Ellen, who in turn had a daughter named Maria… and that appears the end.

        Wikipedia references Ellen on Temple’s page, citing a work of papers written by Temple held by the American Philosophical Society. The link referenced is no longer valid, but a simple search on the Society’s site leads you to descriptions of the papers. Could not locate a document specifically referencing his daughter; calling the Society might lead to better results.

        • jim says:

          Sean, We do know note that Temple had three children by as many different mistresses, but they all died in infancy.
