Silas Fannin
Posted by: ralph sayre (ID *****8382) Date: July 20, 2005 at 00:39:06

My ancestor, Silas Fannin, with part of his family seemingly disappeared from their home in Butler District, Wayne County, West Virginia about 1887 (according to available public records). From Census information and death certificates of a couple of children of Silas, he was born in Kentucky about 1822. The first public record that I have for him was the 1842 Lawrence County, Kentucky Tax List. His wife was Mary “Polly” (Ferguson) Fannin.

William and Amanda Fannin lived at Highland, Campbell County in 1880. William was born about 1840 in Kentucky to Kentucky-born parents. I’m asking that anyone who has done Fannin research or has an interest in Fannin or the place they lived, please check your records for a clue about Silas Fannin after 1887. I have tried to find information on his final years, date of death, and where buried for about thirty years now. If you find any references to Fannin in the 1820-1900 period in an early Campbell county history, I am interested. You may post any leads here or email me at rhsayre@excite.com. Thank you.

Ralph
