I do not have information for Weddle, but am seeking further information for Fannie and Frances Durham.

My information indicates Fannie Bell Durham; born 2 Nov 1887 Jackson County, died Feb 1977 Jackson County married James Henry Lawson on 15 May 1911 Jackson County. James Henry was grandson of John and Nancy Durham Lawson married about 1849 KY. Nancy died before 1870 in Jackson County.

Frances Durham, born 9 Sep 1890 died 1981 married John L Durham, born 21 Jan 1889 died 15 May 1915 Jackson County. John L Durham was son of John Hardin Durham, born 18 Jan 1842 IN, died ??? (was in 1910 Jackson County Census) + Eliza Ellen Trueblood, born Jul 1858 IN, died 27 Jul 1920. Eliza Ellen Trueblood was John Hardin Durham’s second marriage.

John Hardin Durham was son of Joseph Durham, born 1818 Madison County KY, died 1874 Rockcastle County, KY + Unknown.( born KY as noted in John Hardin’s census listing). I have nothing in my to indicate the ancestors of Fannie and Frances Durham, although I have seen speculation they were daughters of a John Harden Durham that died 1942 at age 81 in Jackson County and is buried in Lanning Spur Cemetery. I know nothing of such a John Harden Durham. The John Hardin Durham born 1842 appears to get the Hardin middle name from his grandmother’s last name.

That does help, as we didn't have the marriage date for Frances and Jiggs (Herman Flinn). Can you tell me.... is there a record for Frances and a John Durham?

On obituaries, John Durham is listed as the father. My grandmother Geneva had a few names randomly written down on paper, along with birthdates.

Medford T. Durham 06/11/1912
Ervin Durham 08/19/1914
John Durham 01/09/1916
Geneva Durham 10/29/1918
Virgina Durham 10/29/1918... this was her twin sister, who she actually has listed as Virginia Parsons. My grandmother married a Parsons, but no one in my family seems to know why Virginia would be listed as a "Parsons" on her sheet.

They have all passed away, with the last one being Ervin in 1999.

She does have another name on her sheet that says: John S. Durham 01/21/1888, and I wonder if he is possibly the father.
John Logan "Johnny" DURHAM and Frances Fosten V. DURHAM had the following children:



Medford T. DURHAM.



Irvin "Ervin" DURHAM.






Virginia DURHAM.



Geneva DURHAM.
