I am wondering if someone can kindly answer a question for me.
I have a Continental Currency note, dated 11/2/1776, Seven Dollars, signed by a J Franklin.
Who is J Franklin? Is he related to Ben Franklin?
Ben had a brother James, but I believe he died in 1735 well before the 1776 date on the currency. James had a son James, but he also appears to have died before 1776.
