Thanks for responding.I think we are a match.Go to message #2759 of Collins GenForum--this is our family.I feel the Wayne Co. marriage for Jacob Abshire and Rebecca Collins is in error.I have another ancestor, Mary Isaacs, who is shown as "Nancy Isaacs" on the Wayne Co. marriage register.I did not have Elizabeth Abshire in my records.What can you tell me about her?Fannie Jane went by the name of "Jane", at least after she was married.She married Robert Eldridge McKee in WC on Apr. 18, 1872. Their children were:Unnamed Baby Girl b. May 15, 1873; John Henry b. Oct. 3, 1874; George W. III "Gede" b. July 15, 1876; William Emmett b.Oct. 10, 1879; Allen Garfield (my grandfather) b. Mar. 18, 1881; Edward Samuel "Eddy" b. July 4, 1883; Mary Elizabeth "Liz" (probably named for your ancestor) b. Oct. 18, 1885; Robert Eldridge, Jr. b. Sept. 21, 1888; Jenettie Mae b. Sept. 15, 1890; Benjamin Harrison "Ben" b Aug. 27, 1892.
Fannie Jane Abshire McKee died Mar. 14, 1903 and is buried on Cragstons Creek in Wayne Co.
I have more info, if you want it let me know and I will send to you privately.I look forward to learning about Mary Elizabeth.
