Jasper and Eliza Franklin are the Great Grandparents of Helen Faller Thomas. Helen was told Eliza always had a pocket on the front of her dress. She used this to carry tobacco. She smoked a pipe and always had it with her.
Helen Faller Thomas was the daughter of Retha Bushong and John Charles Faller, and the granddaughter of Nora J. Franklin and Alfred H. Bushong. Helen married Henry "Van" Thomas of Erie, Erie County PA and Punxsutawney, Jefferson County, PA
