Franklin Ould Information

Research by Michael Jefferies into Franklin Ould and his descendants

Franklin Ould Information
by Michael Scott Jefferies

Whatever happened to Franklin Ould?

William Jefferies emigrated to the US in 1861 with his wife, Mary Francis Ould, and his wife's mother, Mary Frances Fox, and his wife's two younger brothers, James and Franklin. William's journal says the following about Mary's two younger brothers:

James got work at Bro. Harlow Redfield's in the 19th ward, S. L. City. This occurred before we had been on the Camp Ground an hour, Sept. 23rd. Franklin worked a few days in S. L. City for a man by the name of Brown, and then he went to work for Bro. Henry Bawden, at Cottonwood.

And here I will remark that James seved Bro. Redfield faithfully, and was much respected by him and the family, and, after a few days illness, he died of what was supposed to be putrid sore throat, Sept. 24, 1862. Franklin left Bro. Bawden's and took James'place at Bro. Redfield's. Some years after he worked for me awhile. Then he went to Ogden and worked in a cabinet shop for a time. He then worked on the railroad as a section hand, then as Fireman, and then as a engineer, which business he is now engaged in. He got married, has four or five children, and now lives at Ogden, I believe. I do not write in positive terms concerning the number of children he now has, or his present residence, for he does not give us much information by letter of late years.

Although James was left with no prosperity, Franklin apparently married and had several children. The information below traces Franklin and his descendants, so that we might contact some of our Ould cousins.
