William Obadier JANES
William Obadier JANES was born September 9, 1851 in Munfordsville, Metcalf County, Kentucky. He died February 7, 1931 in Seymour, Jackson County, Indiana of TB. He was the son of David JANES and Nancy H. HUGHART. He married Luraney WILLCUT April 19, 1869 in Washington County, Indiana.
I have been unable to find the father of David. There are several JANES families in the area he was born and lived.
He was born William O. JANES, married as William O. JEANS, and died as William O. JAYNES. The O stands for Obadier. I have no idea where that came from.
Their children were; George Thomas, Joseph Henry, Aaron M., William Arthur, Lonia May, James Luther, Lubertha, Edith Pearl, DeWitt David, Charles C.,
Claude Roscoe, David. George Thomas 'Tom' is my direct ancestor.
