I am searching for a living male descendant from Jacob Franks b. 1687 or Moses Franks b 1717. Jacob's sons are believed to include Naphtali b c1715, David b. 1720, and Moses b c1723. Jacob Franks is believed to be the brother of Moses Franks b. 1717, whose grandson may be David Salisbury Franks b.1743
I would like to discern whether this Franks family of New York and Philadelphia is related to the Michael Franks (b. c1725 in Germany and d 1793 in German Township PA) by using a Y-DNA test. Descendants of Michael Franks (1725-1793) have already been tested, so the test results of a direct male descendant from the Jacob (b 1687) or Moses (b 1717) would either match that Y-DNA or not, telling us whether these Franks family are related. If you have the name of a living male descendant, please contact me. There will be no cost for the Y-DNA test.
