The following excerpt is thought to come from a "Goodspeed Biography" published around 1893:
----------
Robert L Franklin received a common school education and at about the age of twenty-five years began to make his own way in the world. In 1865 he was married to Miss Anna Goldson of Oxford County, MS, a daughter of William D and Permelia Goldson and their union resulted in the birth of ten children:  Minnie A (Mrs. Milton); Mary E; Edith C (Mrs. Jones); Willie L; John B; Charley A; Julia S; and Mattie L being the only ones now living. Upon the opening of the war in 1861, he became a member of Company H, Fifth Alabama Regiment, under Jackson, and fought at the battles of Seven Pines, Yorktown, the seven days engagement at Richmond, Chancellorsville, Bull's Run, the first and second Manassas, Sharpsburg, Petersburg and Fredricksburg. He was wounded at malvern Hill, and lay ten days in the hospital at Richmond, and at the battle of Chancellorsville he lost his left arm from a rifle shot. After remaining in the hospital for some time, he was honorably discharged from the service and returned to his home, where he has since devoted his attention to planting, and has done well. His plantation is a fertile and admirably conducted one and is situated on a beautiful prarie and he has the consciousness that it was obtained through his own endeavors, and not from inheritance. He is an enterprising and industrious planter and has proven himself a good manager.
