  • Notes 
    • Father was a captain in the army and friend of Abraham Lincoln. Fannie remembered Lincoln staying overnight at their house when she was little and getting to sit in his lap. He was so tall, they had to put a chair at the end of the bed for his feet to stick out onto.
      Two slaves from her home are buried against the fence at Lath Branch cemetary.
