Thread Name: Lyr Add: Ballad of Frankie Silver
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Ballad of Frankie Silver
My wife is a g-g-g-granddaughter of Frankie. We have letters written by Frankie's daughter, Nancy. She has written on the first page the poem that Frankie read at the hanging. It is a very short poem. The rest has been added later to try to make a better story. You all have only heard the Silver side of the story. Coming this summer there will be a book coming out telling the Stuart's side.
