Fannie Willie Warren Webb Yarborough
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 26, 1860
Death: Sep. 14, 1896

Fannie Willie Warren descended from colonial families in both parents' lines. She was one of three surviving of five children of James B. Warren (1825-1862) and Rebecca Smith (1828-1878), and the only daughter. Fannie's father, James, died in the Civil War in Dec. 1862 near Murphreesboro, TN when Fannie, the youngest of his five children, was only two years old. Her brothers were James Edgar - known as George Edgar when a child (1849-1905) and Walter William (1855-1910) Warren. The Warrens had come from Virgina and South Carolina via Georgia down to Mississippi, where Fannie's father was born in Sandy Hook, Marion County. Her mother's family had come to Louisiana (Rebecca was born in St. Tammany Parish) from New York. After Fannie's father died serving the 16th. LA Infantry in the Civil War, his widow continued on their farm, marrying neighboring farmer Charles Wesley Williams (1840-1910) in 1865. The 1870 census shows them living in next-door households- in one, Fannie and her brothers along with the wife of James Edgar, Nancy Womack Warren, and in the other, their mother, her new husband, and her new second family of two children. Four years later, only 14, Fannie married William T. Webb but was soon widowed, with one child. On Sept. 26, 1878, age 18, she married Charles Joseph (Joe) Yarborough, who adopted her baby; the couple started their own family, which would number ten children by 1894. Much of Fannie's short life remains a mystery, even after extensive research, as is true of so many lives uprooted by the Civil War. We do not know how her first marriage ended or even what became of William G. Webb or who his parents were. Her parents' families are, however, heavily documented and both have deep lines into the past of the colonial and early federal South. The image here is thought to be that of Fannie as a young girl; it was found among family photographs of those closely related to her. Fannie died Sept. 14, 1896, reportedly in childbirth. She is buried among the kin of her second husband although her first husband had purchased a family plot in Hollywood Cemetery, McComb MS, and his son and grandson, James Oscar and Charles Joseph Webb (named after the Yarborough stepfather who raised James Oscar) are buried there. Also in that family plot are Fannie's middle child with her second husband, Thomas Walter Yarborough, and T. W.'s daughter Addie Caroline Yarborough.
