Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 5, 1789
Kentucky, USA
Death: unknown

Frances "Fanny" McGahey (McGaughey) was born on September 5, 1789 in Kentucky. Frances was married on March 10, 1829 in Russell Township, Putnam Co., Indiana to Zadock Conner (son of Daniel I. Conner and Mary). Zadock was born on February 10, 1780 in Montgomery Co., Virginia and died on September 13, 1854 in Franklin Township, Putnam Co., Indiana and buried at the Guilliams Cemetery, Putnam Co., Indiana.

Note: In the 1820 census Frances and Zadock lived in Montgomery Co., Virginia. In the 1830 census they lived in Putnam Co., Indiana. In the 1850 census they lived Franklin Township, Putnam Co., Indiana. Frances was 40 years old when she married Zadock. She probably came to Putnam Co. from Kentucky in the mid 1820's. Court records in Owingsville, Bath Co., Kentucky shows that her father, William McGahey, sold 125 acres located on the east fork of Moffit Creek for 600 dollars silver. In June 1818 a claim was executed allowing him pension for his services in the Revolution. Documents related to this claim indicated that the soldier was living in Putnam Co., Indiana in 1826. William McGahey's family Bible notes the date of her marriage to Zadock and the birth date of Andrew Conner, their oldest child. Andrew is B. J. Conner's grandfather. Frances was the oldest child of William and Prepare (Clark) McGaughey. William was a patriot soldier of the American Revolution. His name is on a bronze tablet in the Putnam Co. Courthouse, along with other Revolutionary War Veterans of the County. B. J. Conner was accepted in the Washington Chapter of Wichita, Kansas National Society of Sons of the American Revolution as a descendant of William McGahey, National Member No. 147041.
