Lucy Varner m Jasper Franks s/o Wilson
Posted by: Rebecca Wheeler Pettifer Date: September 04, 2000 at 21:54:40

My G Grandmother was Lucy Varner who died in 1893 my father thinks during childbirth.

She was married to Jasper Franks b. 11-19-1862 d 1-18-1935 son of Wilson Thomas Franks b. 2-10-1834 d.2-2-1877 from Grant Ky son of James C Franks of Grant/Pendleton Ky son of John Martin Franks of Grant/Pendleton Ky son of Jacob Franks originally from Mich and Germany.

They were probably living in either Marion or Lewis Co. around the time of her death.

She died in Steffensville, Marion Co, Mo and she and Jasper had 3 children. Addie Franks (Grady)b. in 1887, Mary Ann/Anne Franks (Wheeler) b.1890 born in Steffensville, Marion Co. Mo and Otis the youngest died as a baby (No known birth or death date.)

Jasper Franks remarried to Daisy Golliher and they had 5 children Pearl (Earl Calhoun), Lucille "Cecil"(Frank Wade), Ernest b. 1901 d 6-19-1961, Elmer Joy b 9-23-1906 d 12-18-1951, Edith (Ed Clark). Jasper and Daisy are buried at Moss Ridge Cemetery in Carthage, Hancock Co, Il. along with Ernest & Elmer that I know of.

I am looking for Lucy Varner's Parents and date of birth. I am pretty sure she was born in Grant/Pendelton County, Ky.

My father thinks her father may be Thomas Varner and her mother a Moore. But is not sure at all.

Please help. All of her information was lost to us when she died.

Thank you for reading my posting.
