Francis Branham ~ Exhibit
Francis Branham's surname is sometimes confused with that of her mother, listing her as Frances Baskett instead of Branham, but research has shown that Branham is the correct surname.
She was born 3 February 1770 in Virginia, but some sources list her birth as about 1765 and her death about 1850 in Floyd Co., Kentucky. It is probable that she died between 1840 and 1850 in Floyd Co., Kentucky as she cannot be found in any household in the 1850 census either as the head or listed in one of her children's houses.
