Jenny Wilbanks was born Sept 1883 in NJ. Her mother was named Mary born 1846 in Ireland. Her father Mr. Wilbanks was also born in Ireland. The parents were separated from 1900-bef 1920 when Mary finally lists herself as a widow (not in 1910 or 1900 census). From the 1910 census response, Mary was married about 1878. She had three children, John born July 1880 who was a plumber his whole life and never married and was living with his sister in 1942 in Long Branch, NJ. His brother James born 5/1/1887 was also at first a plumber but then became a lineman for Western Union. Jennie married John Wesley Franklin (b. 9/12/1888 in Oretown, OR) in 1919 in Manhattan. He was living there with her in 1920 was a marine machinist. I can't find Jennie in the 1930 census, but I think I found John back in Tillamook Co, OR as a logging partner "widowed." In 1942 he is back in NYC and unemployed and his nearest relative is a Franklin in OR. Did Jennie and John have children? What happened to both of them? I have John's parents as Francis marion Franklin and Leona Jane Bosley, both of whom died in Oregon in the 1940s. These are cousins of mine I am trying to find out what happened to them.
