Looking for the descendants of Weeks FRAZIER & Anny SALMONS
My husband's gggg-grandfather was James A. FRAZIER born about 1818 in Floyd, Kentucky. James married Mary A. HENNING (b. about 1815 in Rockingham, Virginia) in Edgar County, Illinois on 13 SEP 1839. The couple shows up in the 1840 Illinois census in Edgar. Living a few households away was a Weeks FRAZIER, who was a little bit older. I thought, since Weeks was the only other FRAZIER I found and was just old enough to have fathered James, that I'd do a little research on him.
I found that Weeks just happened to have gotten married in Floyd, Kentucky on 23 FEB 1815 to Anna (or Anny) SALMONS. He was born about 1795 in Patrick, Virginia. In the 1840 Edgar, Illinois Census, he was found living with 1 female 40 to under 50; 1 female 10-15; 1 female 5-10 and 1 female under 5; 2 males 20 to under 30; 1 male 15-20; 1 male 10-15; and one male under 5.
I found Weeks FRAZIER under the name of 'Starivore' FRAZIER in the 1850 Edgar, Illinois census. By this time Anny SALMONS had passed away and he is found living with a Mahalay. In Illinois marriage records it states that he married Mahalay FULLER on 23 JUN 1841. There are two children living with them that were born prior to 1841. They appear to be twins born about 1836, Jonathan and Nancy J. FRAZIER. They are the only two that I have some kind of proof are descendants of Weeks & Anny.
Weeks & Mahalay have six children of their own; Henry b. about 1842; Phebe b. about 1844; George b. about 1845; Susannah b. about 1846; Abigail b. about 1849 and Francis M. b. about 1850.
In the 1860 census, he is found living with a Mary. Illinois marriage records state that he married a Mary BUSH on 23 AUG 1853. They had one known child, Marshall FRAZIER born about 1853. Weeks is not found in the 1870 census, but it appears that Mary remarried after him. So I do believe that he passed between the 1860 and 1870 censuses.
Out of 15 known children, one would think that SOMEONE would be a living breathing desendant of Weeks FRAZIER. And out of the 8 children of Weeks and Anny found in the 1840 Census, you would think that there would be definite descendants. I CANNOT find ANYONE who seems to know who their children were. I have found plenty of folks who know about Weeks' parents and siblings, but this does not help. I am not absolutely sure where and when my husband's gggg-grandfather died, so I can't go for his death certificate, and that might not even bear his parents' names. But I do believe that someone knows. And I can pretty much feel in my gut that Weeks and Anny were his parents...now I need the proof.
