I don't know about the name HESTER but there are quite a few FRANKLINs in
Jefferson Co., AL. Some of them married into some of my Jefferson Co.
Here are some of the names I have:
Audrey m Earl Theodore Lee
Ellen E b abt 1893 m Elbert Ross Teer
Elzie M b 7 Sep 1876 m George Washington Glass
Epsie Augusta m Bennie Brasher
Grady m Bessie Mae Brasher
Houston m Christine McCombs
Mary Davis b abt 1886 m William S McCombs
Nancy b 1808-1810 m Joseph B(erry) Glenn
Thomas b about 1795 m Martha unknown
Winney b about 1839 m Elias Glenn
I do have one HESTER in my file. Louise Smithwick married a Mr. Hester.
If you would like more info on any of these, let me know and I will check
and see what I have.
