About Mary Franklin

John Franklin, b. 1690, Ben Franklin's older brother, was married twice. Once to a Mary Gooch in about 1715, and then after she died, he married the widow Elizabeth Gooch Hubbard in 1753. Neither of these women were known as "Mary Elizabeth Gooch" in any historical documents. Mary and Elizabeth Gooch were two different women.

John Franklin, b. 1690, had only one child, a son, John, born in June of 1716, and lost at sea as a young man without issue.
