    Hello. Is the Franklin Twsp. History book being sold online anywhere, or could I order a copy from the library? I moved away from Somerset NJ many years ago, but I would like to get a copy of this book. Please advise.

    Thanks!

    I live in Cape May, New Jersey. My grandfather was an early settler. I would love to buy this book. Please give me info on obtaining this book. Thank you.

    Could I order a couple of copies for my daughters? We lived in Franklin Twsp for 17 years from ’78 to ’95. And they both graduated from FHS.
