Please look for Silas Fannin in Elliott County

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.

In the 1880 Kentucky Census, in Martinsburg there were households of Rolly (possibly Raleigh) and Almarinda Fannin; William G. and Polly Fannin; Isaac and Elizabeth H. Fannin with brother Richard; James A. and Elizabeth Fannin; Jemima Fannin, Widow; Peter M. and Nancy W. Fannin; and Bryant and Sarah Fannin.

Anderson and Francis Fannin at Newcombs. Benjamin and Ellen Fannin, and Benjamin and Catherine Fannin were at Devil’s Fork.

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 Elliott county history, I am interested. You may post any leads here or email me at Thank you.
