    "Tracy Putnam's thoughts:
    "Have known for awhile that John
    Martin Francks first wife was Susannah, but had not yet tied her down, this
    of course goes against everything ever written about the Franck Family,
    especially Sybil Hyatt's information.

    It also backs up what I have long supected which is that Sevilla (Civilla)
    Miller (not her daughter Anna Civilla Franck) was the wife of Gasper
    Timmerman."

    ......................................................

    All through the article is information on many of the early families of
    Bath Town and their relationship to Black Beard and most important,
    genealogical information on some of these families that later found their
    way into our area.

    Tracy was at LCC this morning before they opened the doors to read this
    article - it gives strong circumstantial evidence that Susannah, the first
    wife of John Martin Franck of Jones Co, was the daughter of Capt. James
    Beard and the sister of Black Beard. What was Franck doing marrying a lady
    from Bath Town who only appears to have been there for a few years.

    .......................................................................

    Feb. 12, 1733, John Martin Franck, who married Philip Miller’s sister, Seville, sold his farm three hundred acres part of a tract lying on the south side of Trent River “commonly called and known by ye name of New Germany” surveyed for him June 5, 1711 to Philip Miller for 200 pounds and bought the place on Mill Creek at which he lived near Tuckahoe Creek where he built a saw mill, a grist mill besides the house now standing and barns.
