FRANKLIN, PEALOW posted by Virginia Shuler on Sunday, Nov 5, 2000
Hello, I am seeking information on my Grandmother Lena Pealow FRANKLIN. The only information I have is that she was married to Jack Robert FRANKLIN and that she was buried in St. Maries, ID. I don't know if she was living living in the area or not. But I believe she may have passed away in the 1930's but that is only a guess. I believe she is buried in the Woodland Cemetery in St. Maries. Thank you for your help.
