Living with Elijah and Nancy Franks, who I believe to be his grandparents (it has not been established yet that their son was Lemuel B., father to John J.). Also living with them are two other sons of Elijah and John's brother, William. It is possible that John and William have been orphaned through disease or the civil war. Neither parents are found in this or later censuses.; Principal=AL Marion Co Census 1860, Witness=Elijah S. Franks2
