From VBloxham3270 there, this note:
"1. SEE DUP SUBMISSION CORRECTING RUTH FRANKLINS PARENTS June 2005 by Maxine Belnap:"Birth is from Scituate, Providence, Rhode Island vital records FHL film#941133 p.195. David is included in the 1774 Scituate RI census. There is 1 male over 16 and 1 male under 16, 1 female over 16 and 2 females under 16. In 1790 he is in the Coventry RI cenus. In 1800 he is in the Sterling, Windham, Connecticut census. He is over 45. David and his brother, Abel are the only Franklins in Sterling in 1800. David served in the Rev War. He was in Col. Crary's RI Regiment (FHLfilm#1486147). He applied for a pension in 1820 from Tioga County, Pennsylvania. It was rejected because he did not serve in the Continental Army. He applied again in 1828 from Villinova, Chautauqua, New York. Again it was refused. Arkwright township was formed in 1829 from Villinova. It is likely they lived in Arkwright where their daughter Hannah and her husband Caleb Weaver lived."

Ruth Curtis named one of their children Simmons Philander Curtis, so that is probably the correct spelling of Hannah's maiden-name.

Oddly, most trees on have different parents for Ruth Franklin Curtis.
