Sarah Franklin Bache: Daughter of Benjamin Franklin

Share

Sarah Franklin was born to Benjamin Franklin and Deborah Read Franklin at Philadelphia on the eleventh day of September, 1744. Sarah, known as Sally throughout her life, had a typical education for a girl of her status in eighteenth-century Philadelphia. She had a great love of reading and music and was considered a skilled harpsichordist.

Great article on one of Ben’s kids.  Read the whole thing at History of American Women.  For more on Ben listen to episode 44.
