In February of 1803 Montgomery Co., TN, she is listed as Fanny McCorkle, the wife of Joseph McCorkle, as the document above indicates she was the executrix of Joseph McCorkle's estate.
In the will of Noah Sugg in 1800 Robertson Co., TN she is listed as Fanny Jenkins.In a book I found about the Suggs, Noah took Fanny as his common law wife shortly after his wife died.She was left his home and fifty acres, along with some livestock.

So in 1800 in the will of Noah Sugg she is listed as Fanny Jenkins.In 1803 she is listed as the widow of Joseph McCorkle, and in 1805 she is listed as the wife of Gulley Moore.In her will of 1837 she is listed as the widow of Gulley Moore and presently married to William Crockett.
I have found some online genealogies that indicates that Abner Harris was her brother, but according to another Harris researcher, Frances married James V Harper in 1790 in Halifax Co NC.Later James V. Harper is found in southside NC in Rutherford Co with a different wife.
So who is Frances "Fanny" Jenkins?
