G. W. Franklin was born in Quitman, Georgia. He operated four businesses: blacksmithing, a hack line, a wood and coal yard, and an undertaking establishment. In 1894 Franklin moved his undertaking business to Chattanooga. He was a member of the National Negro Business League and president of the National Negro Funeral Directors Association. In 1915 Franklin served as an honorary pallbearer for his friend, Dr. Booker T. Washington. Thirteen years later, Franklin conducted the funeral services of Margaret Murray Washington, the wife of his esteemed friend.
