      JAMES SERVED IN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR AND RECEIVED BOUNTY LAND IN
      GREENE COUNTY, GORGIA. FORT INDICATES WITHOUT PROOF THAT THE FATHER OF
      JAMES WAS CAPTAIN JAMES FANNING WHO IS BURIED IN LONG ISLAND.

      FIRST FAMILIES OF AMERICA, VOL 1 PG 922, SAYS JAMES 1739-1803 MARRIED
      1767 ELIZABETH SAFFOLD (1748-1814) WAS SON OF JACOB FANNIN OF IRELAND.

      SERVED IN REVOLUTIONARY WAR AND RECEIVED BOUNTY LAND IN GEORGIA.

      ACCORDING TO THE HONORABLE JOHN C. FANNIN, OF SPRINGFIELD, ORANCEBURG
      COUNTY, [IS ORANGEBURG A COUNTY OR A DISTRICT DURING THE HONORABLE JOHN C.
      FANNIN'S TIME PERIOD?] SOUTH CAROLINA, ONE JAMES FANNIN CAME FROM
      CONNECTICUT TO VIRGINIA. HE WAS ORIGINALLY FROM IRELAND, AND HE FOUGHT
      WITH WASHINGTON WHEN BRADDOCK WAS DEFEATED IN 1752. HE WENT TO SOUTH
      CAROLINA AND SETTLED NEAR SPRINGFIELD BEFORE THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR.

      ACCORDING TO THE HONORABLE JOHN C. FANNIN, JAMES FANNIN HAD FOUR SONS:
      JOHN, JAMES, ABRAM, DAVID (OR EDMUND AS IN ANOTHER VERSION OF THE
      QUOTATION FROM THE HONORABLE JOHN C. FANNIN). JOHN WAS A COLONEL IN THE
      REVOLUTIONARY WAR; JAMES AND ABRAM WERE PRIVATES; DAVID (OR EDMUND) WAS A
      TORY. AFTER THE WAR, JOHN SETTLED NEAR COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA. ABRAM
      SETTLED ON HIS FATHER'S OLD PLACE NEAR SPRINGFIELD, THEIR FATHER BEING
      DEAD. JAMES MOVED TO GEORGIA WHERE HE BECAME WEALTHY AND HIS FAMILY
      BECAME PROMINENT, AND HE WAS THE GRANDFATHER OF COLONEL JAMES FANNIN OF
      EARLY TEXAS FAME. _/1 ABRAM WAS THE GRANDFATHER OF THE FANNINS WO SETTLED
      IN ALABAMA AND TEXAS.

      A COPY OF JOHN C. FANNIN'S MANUSCRIPT IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR CHECKING, BUT
      OUR INFORMATION ON ABRAM FANNIN AND HIS DESCENDANTS SEEMS TO FIT THESE
      QUOTATIONS.

      _/1 WALTER FREDERIC BROOKS IN HIS HISTORY OF THE FANNING FAMILY SAYS
      THAT THE JAMES FANNING WHO MARRIED ELIZABETH SAFFOLD (OF THE "FORT AND
      FANNIN" LINE) WAS NOT CONNECTED WITH HIS FANNING FAMILY - THAT THEY WERE
      RECENT IMMIGRANTS. THE TEXAS HERO BELONGED TO THIS FANNING FAMILY. "THE
      COMPENDIUM OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY, FIRST FAMILIES OF AMERICA, " VOL. 1, P.
      922, SAYS THAT JAMES FANNIN (1739-1803) WHO MARRIED 1767 ELIZABETH
      SAFFOLD (1748-1814) WAS THE SON OF JAMES FANNIN OF IRELAND.
