Subject: Re: Sarepta's Obituary]

Hi Linda,

I just got back from Blountville. Sarepta is not listed in the Eastern District Primitive Baptist Obits on file there. I'm sorry, but I tried. I found your grandfather. The person listed as Reppy in the index file that I sent to you last week was not there. It almost makes me think that the records are incomplete.


Also the same source p 23, Line 36, lists a Hatton (Halton ?) Faning

Death Date - 8-11-1862
Cause - Shot
Parents - Jessee R. and Ellen Faning
Informant - Bryant Faning (Grandfather)
Died - Lee County Soldier
Age - 21
Born - Wythe County

I'm not sure where else I can look for Sarepta. It seems like a dead end for right now. Sorry about that.

Brenda

18 Nannie Fannon Raymond's Family History
Added by lfbarke1 on 2 Sep 2008

Nannie Maude Ethel Fannon Raymond was born on April 11, 1910 in Blackwater, Virginia to Perry Lafayette and Attie Ruth Wallen Fannon, the fourth of ten children (her siblings were Edgar Ewing Fannon, Carrie Lee Ora Fannon Lawson, Grace Rebecca Fannon Creech, Roy Elmer Fannon--who unfortunately "died at the age of 13 months", Hazel Clara Fannon Peters, Ray Eugene Fannon, Roe William Fannon, Bonnie Jeanette Fannon Sybert, and Edith Corel Fannon Collier). She said that her father was "pulling tan bark on the night she was born...and the snow ran him out of the mountain".

Nannie worked outside the home before she was married. She worked in a cotton mill in South Carolina and in Borden Mill in Kingsport, Tennessee. "She also stayed three years with the ailing mother of Onza Hyatt, the principal at the high school 'back in the '20's'".

Nannie did not marry until she was 35 (she helped her sisters Carrie and Grace raise their other siblings); she married John Carroll Raymond on November 20, 1945 in Gate City, Virginia. From this union came two children, two daughters, Linda (born September 18, 1949) and Margaret (born March 4, 1951). They lived in Rogersville, Tennessee for a time (their children were born there), and in Dayton, Ohio for a number of years while John worked for General Motors. It was there that John died of heart failure at the age of 59 (September 1, 1958) when they had been married 13 years. Nannie was 48 years old and her daughters were nine and seven. She came back to live in Blackwater, Virginia, to the Fannon homeplace that her parents received from her father's parents for taking care of them while they were disabled. She too, took care of her parents in their old age, and credited her longevity to obeying her parents (she lived to be 96).

She was a member of Osborne's Chapel Church in Blackwater, Virginia. She became a member when she was 19 years old.

Written by: Lola Fannon Barker, great-niece of Nannie Fannon Raymond, granddaughter of her brother, Roe William Fannon, based on an article published in a Blackwater, Virginia newspaper in approximately November 2005, "Blackwater Senior Resident Shares Family History".

19 John Osborne originally owned a two-story log house in Blackwater, Virginia, built in 1818. He later sold it to G.B. "Greenberry" Wallen, Sr., a retired school teacher, Baptist preacher, newspaper columnist, and grandfather of Attie Ruth Wallen Fannon. Perry Lafayette Fannon, Attie Ruth's husband, purchased the house and 13-acre farm for $750 in 1893.

27 Retired from McDonnell Douglas- 30 years-Aircraft Painter  Lorne Carl Russell
 
28 He served as sheriff of Lee County, Va. during the 1860's. Quite a versatile man, he worked with farms, timber, and trading, having accumulated considerable property, but his generosity and tendency to "secure" his neighbors' loans, etc., reduced his holdings in later years.

He carried on extensive correspondence with friends and relatives. It is to his prolific pen that we are now in-debted for the many names and dates recorded in his large notebook, which is still in possession of his son, Sampson Sage's family.

Billy again demonstrated his versatility when he was licensed to preach as a lay Methodist minister in Lee Co., Va. in 1878. He remarried at the age of seventy-one. His second wife was Lynda Ratliff, who was also an "elderly" lady.

30 Nancy Wilcox is where the "Indian" heritage supposedly came in. This is also the Fannon connection with with The Abraham Compton geneology. Nancy's mother was Gency Compton who married Harmon Wilcox who was supposedly 100% Cherokee.He was reputed to be a Methodest minister. I have found no records of any kind for Harmon. This would be consistent with the Cherokee theory.
This line is documented and published in Comptonology (vol. 2, no. 7) Aug. 1942. Gency Compton and Harmon Wilcox are at entry (8-C), Nancy Wilcox and William Anderson are at (57-D), and Maggie Anderson and Charlie Fannon are listed at (211-E).
This is the documentation some in our family have used to qualify for membership in the DAR. Also SAR.
