Richard Bache
1737 - 1811
Franklin's son-in-law. Born in Settle, Yorkshire, England, and left to join his brother in New York in 1765. Soon afterwards he moved to Philadelphia where he eventually became a successful merchant and insurance purveyor. Married Franklin's daughter Sarah (Sally) in 1767 and had seven children (who survived infancy); all direct descendants of Franklin living today originated from these seven Bache children.
