Title: Fain Family Pedigrees
Post by: fainAdmin on January 03, 2005, 06:07:43 PM
We invite you to submit your "Pedigree" for this Surname.   Our Surname Project is primarily interested in your Paternal line, as surnames are passed down from father to son, just as the yDNA is passed down. 

If you ARE A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, send your pedigree by email to at  The pedigree will then be posted on the Surname Project's Patriarchs Page by or sent to the Project’s Administrator.

Please include the following:
•       Name of project
•       Kit Number
•       Name of person posting pedigree
•       Email address to be posted with pedigree
•       Name, birthdate, birthplace, spouse of Earliest Known Ancestor
•       List each succeeding generation, using only those four items of information (or substitute another item of information if missing an item)

 (If you have more information you would like to share, you may also post a more extended version of your family pedigree on the project website’s Pedigree Forum below)

If you are NOT A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, you are welcome to post your pedigree on the Pedigree Forum below.  We hope an interested researcher will see it and contact you to share information.

I'm hoping by posting this, I can connect to my Hensley and Johnson lines as well:

Charles Fain  b. 8/1742 Chesterfield, VA  d. 1834 Tennessee
  m.  Judath Catherine Spurlock b. 1758  d. 1860  (Married in Maryland)
       Child:  David Fain  b. 7/26/1781 North Carolina  d.  2/8/1831 Marshall, TN
                 m.  7/20/1805 Elbert City, GA to Catherine Wood b. 2/20/1776 Granville, NC  d. 5/02/1859 Marshall, TN
                  Child:  Charles Fain  b. 8/06/1806 Elbert, GA d. 4/15/1881 Lewis Co, TN
                            m. 1830 Hickman Co, TN to Sarah Ann Rutledge b. 4/17/1810 TN  d. 11/11/1899 Lewis Co, TN
                             Child:  Savannah J. Fain  b. ?  d. 12/24/1896 Lewis Co, TN
                                       m.  Drury D. Hensley b. 2/2/1850 Lewis Co, TN d. 3/14/1897 Lewis Co, TN
                                       Child:  Sarah Catherine "Kate" b. 4/8/1886 Lewis Co, TN  d. 12/20/1960 New Orleans, LA
                                                 m. 12/28/1900 Hohenwald, Lewis Co, TN to Samuel D. Johnson  b. 6/29/1877 Hickman Co, TN  d. 4/4/1954 Ridgely, Lake Co, TN
                                                 Child:  Fred Walker Johnson b. 3/22/1905 TN  d. 3/28/1998 Ridgely, Lake Co, TN
                                                          m. Madie Lucille Hearod b. 8/4/1909 d. 2/9/1998 Dyersburg, Dyer Co, TN
                                                          Child:  James Billy Richard Johnson b. 10/12/1947
                                                                   m. Clare Paulette Thrasher b. 5/31/1950
                                                                   Child:  Melissa Paulette Johnson b. 6/13/1971
                                                                             m. Billy Gene Franks b. 5/21/1963

As you can see, this is just a drop in the bucket of families I'm related to.  I did not list all of the children for each generation because of the feared loss of space on your site.  I'm hoping someone out there may have an answer - a connection - to the Johnson's and Thrasher's as there are sooo many it's hard to keep up with.  If they have connections to the rest, I'm fine with that too.  Any little bit helps!
