Our first biographical presentation is of Franklin D. Lefever (13-126), the Co-compiler of THE PENNSYLVANIA LEFEVRES record.  In addition to bringing the book to completion (and keeping it in print for nearly 50 years) Franklin has dedicated his life to helping our family and friends learn and appreciate our LeFevre heritage.  For many years, Franklin has led tours through LeFevre historical sites in Lancaster County, PA.  He also located and began the restoration of the Philip Lefever Burying Ground in Lancaster.
     Franklin was appointed Secretary of the LeFevre Cemetery and Historical Association by founder George Newton LeFevre in 1938 and served in that capacity until retiring in 1999.
