In Reply to: Job Fancher, b. abt 1829 in AL by Katherine Stevens of 633

Supposedly my 4GR-G.father Benjamin FANCHER(1735,CT -1809,TN) had a 2nd wife, Sally LINDSEY (mar.1777).

The names I have for their children are: JOB & John(1780)- twins & the oldest; John; David; James S. Job lived until 1814 & died in the War of 1812 @ Ft. Williams, AL.

In 1802 Job FANCHER mar. Rebecca FRIER in Sevier Co,TN. The only child I have listed for them is Benjamin FANCHER (1804-?) who mar. #1- Sally LINDSEY (a cousin) in Bibb Co,AL -7/15/1823. He mar. #2- Winnie FANCHER (another cousin) 1829, Bibb Co,AL. I don't have children listed for either of this Benjamin FANCHER's marriages, but it COULD be possible that he's the father of your Job FANCHER, b-abt. 1829 in AL.

My FANCHER line comes from Samuel FANCHER (1767) s/o the Benjamin Fancher(1735) above & his first wife - Sarah(?). I keep up w/ a lot of FANCHER lines that aren't my own bc/ there was so much TWINNING in those early generations, and my Samuel also had a twin -Richard FANCHER- who also came to AL at the same time. Both men were in their 50's & had grown families of their own. AL was considered part of the 'western frontier' in 1819, so I guess they were pioneers of a sort. Actually they were here by 1817, before statehood and helped estab. the oldest now functioning Baptist church in western AL that year. While church services were going on, guards had to be posted outside to warn of possible Indian attacks !

Several times when I've followed a collateral FANCHER line it's led to answers concerning my direct line. Anyway, I guess the bottom line is, this family's intricate and inter-woven lives really fascinate me ! <s>
