What I have to share was in my original posting. My ancestor was Silas Fannin (Gt. Gt. Grandfather) who lived in Wayne County, West Virginia 1850 through 1880. Most references that I have found give his place of birth as Kentucky. I lost track of that whole family, and they appear to have left West Virginia around 1888. After that date, I haven't found record of him in WV, VA or KY.
My posting was information I had collected in search of him, and an attempt to see if the Lee County Fannons may have information on my Silas. I know the given name, Silas, was used a couple of times in the Fannons of Lee County.It seems to be pretty unusual for most of the Fannins and Fannons.
