  1. The death certificate copy is much appreciated. Mrs. Arabella Franklin was a relative of my husband, Carl Olin Wilson, but she died when he was 5 and he was not aware of how she was kin. He and his mom and sister were living at 4119 Cole Ave. when she died. His grandmother, Dona Marie Franklin Nesmith, AKA Sarah Caledonia Connally, wife of Olin Ellis Nesmith took care of her till she died. Was she Arabella Amborzine Bowen?
