Need Lookup in Louisiana 1887-1920 - FANNIN
Posted by: ralph sayre (ID *****8382) Date: May 22, 2005 at 02:56:24
  of 18908

Wish to find information on this family -- 1887 - 1920 -- Could be anywhere.

Silas FANNIN, b. about 1822 KY; m. Mary FERGUSON. Lived in Butler District, Wayne County, West Virginia 1850 through 1880. Believed to have left the state around 1887.

Silas may have lived past 1900 (would have been about age 78). I have checked the F-550 soundex of 1900 WV Census, and had others check KY, NC and IN 1900 Soundex for me. Would appreciate having other states 1900 Soundex checked.

Two sons, Theodore and Jeremiah Fannin were not in later census reports and I havenít found a trace of them in other places. In the Wayne County, WV 1880 household of Silas Fannin, there were two unmarried daughters, Mary Belle, born about 1864, and Calistia Fannin, b. 9 July 1866. I havenít found their marriages recorded anywhere.

Easton Fannin appears to be the only son who remained in West Virginia. John and Thomas both had families in Kentucky and died there.

Any and all records wanted for the following (time period 1887-1920):

Silas FANNIN, b. about 1822.
Mary (Ferguson) FANNIN, b. about 1826.
Theodore FANNIN, b. about 1845.
Rebecca FANNIN, b. 1850 (probably about April). Married 1st, WORKMAN. Married 2nd, ???
Jeremiah FANNIN, b. 14 September 1855
George Washington FANNIN, b. about 1862.
Mary Belle FANNIN, b. about 1864.
Calistia F. FANNIN, b. 9 July 1866.
William FANNIN, b. about 1868; m. Malinda OSBORNE. He died before 1900 in KY.

If you find or have records to share on these, please post here, or send to me direct at

Thank you.
