I'mresearching a Collier/Conn lineage and the parentage of a Fanny Conn married to James Collier in 1812, Franklin Co. N.C. At this time I think (not proven) that Fanny is the sister of Dixon and Andrew, children of Edward. Fanny may have had a sister Mary Anne who married a John H. Farmer in 1806 Warren who later moved to Williamson, Tennessee. Found a Mary Anne Conn b. 4-3-1788 and baptized in the First Presbyterian Church, Baltimore, Maryland.(This church was co founded by Hugh Conn who died as he was preaching in 1752.) 8-12-1788 in Baltimore, Maryland. Parents are Edward and Alice Conn. They are living in Baltimore independent city (family search.org). I think this may be the Edward Conn family found on the 1800 Franklin Co., N.C. census. At that time there are seven in the household. Males under ten would be Dixon and Andrew, male 10 -15 ?, male 45 and over would be father Edward, female under 10 would be Fanny, female 10-15 would be Mary Anne and female 26-44 would be mother Alice.(Warren County Marriages : Dixon Conn m. Elizabeth Southall 12/18/1821, Edward Conn m. Lucy STokes 1/26/1847 and Hugh Conn m. Rebecca Tucker 11/15/1847.) I have found a Frances Collier, 60, living in the household of Edward S. Collier, 37, carpenter b.1813 on the 1850 Cedar Hill, Anson, N.C. census. Other members in the house hold include his wife Ann, 30, and son Thomas, 2. Listed under Frances is John,16, carpenter and Calvin,14. The ages for Frances, Edward and John are a good fit. In 1870, the census for Mecklenberg Co., Charlotte, N.C. shows our line's John Colyer (sp) carpenter 36, with his family. Then in 1880 John A. (Alexander) is listed in Chester, S.C. with his family. There are Conn's living in Chester,1850, including Robert Conn 60, b. N.C. Wondered if Robert was the missing male on the 1800 Louisburg, Franklin Co. census for Edward and if Fanny moved closer to him after the death of her husband James. Can not find anything further on the family of Edward S. Collier, his wife Ann , son Thomas or Calvin Collier. Did find a Thomas H. Collier who was born around 1846 and died 1-28-1923 in Franklin County, N.C. In the 1900, 1910 and 1920 census' he was listed as a border in the Sledge household, Cedar Rock, Franklin, N.C. Do not know if this was Edward S. Collier's son, but strange he comes up in Franklin. I question if Alice was a family name, as Fanny and James Collier named their daughter Alice Ann (married Rick Mustian 1825, Warren Co. Littleton). Again, all of this is theory, but it makes some sense that Fanny Collier m. 1812 would name her first son Edward born 1813 after her father and her daughter Alice after her mother. Maybe the Ann in Alice Ann is for her sister Mary Anne? Just asking for you to look this over and see if anything jumps out.Any information on these Conns would be greatly appreciated.
