Family Records of Carl Clark (http://www.gencircles.com/users/skydog/1). Carl's records as to the children of Austin Franklin and Mary Lair appear to be based on family bible records. While these records are undoubtably reliable, I do not agree with the rest of his records as they pertain to the Franklin and Lear/Lair families of Wayne Co., KY. Carl's e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
