From late June to July 1, I posted messages on this list and about 20
others. I want to thank all those who gave and offered help. Bottom line
though, Im still in search for a clue to Silas Fannins last days, with
place and date of death. Several who replied had found the information
posted by Deborah Maynard Chatley saying Silas and Polly died in Wyoming
county, WV. Ive checked those statements in every way I know and found
no verification. I suspect they are not true.
Replies to my message have dwindled away, so I will be unsubscribing
soon. Im getting too much mail not applicable to my situation. If anyone
should find any record pertaining to Silas Fannin after 1887 somewhere,
please email me at rhsayre(a)excite.com. I need to point out again that
Silas had a grandson named Silas Fannin who settled in Lincoln county, WV
about 1900. Im interested in finding information about the older Silas
Fannin, b. about 1822 in KY. Thank you. Ralph H. Sayre
Please check all references for SILAS FANNIN, born about 1822 KY; where /
when did he die? Also, wife Mary or Polly Fannin, born about 1824 VA;
where / when did she die?
I know it is widely spread on LDS records and passed around by email that
Silas and Mary were married 1845 in Cabell County, WV and both died in
Wyoming County, WV, Silas 1890 and Mary 1904. Also from same source,
their daughter Rebecca died in McDowell County in 1940. The original
source of these dates havent been made clear and the places and dates
are not verifiable in county records.
Theodore Fannin died as POW at Camp Chase, Franklin, Ohio. Easton died in
Huntington, Cabell, WV. John died at Odds, Johnson, Kentucky. Tom (Thomas
Jefferson Fannin) died in Ashland, Boyd, Kentucky. I havent found a
tombstone or record for Williams death, but his wife was listed as
"widow" in the Johnson county 1900 Kentucky Census.
I am not able to check all the county records and cemetery books myself.
