1880: in the household of his father, who appears as Jac McFann, in Precinct 3 of Cannonsburg, Boyd Co, KY (National Archives Microfilm, T9, Roll 413, ED 9, sheet 12 [Page 195D], family 92)

Vital Records:

Cemetery Records:

"McFanns burind in Vernon Cemetery, Lawrence County", Message 20 on GenForum's McFann Family Genealogy Forum, posted by Terry Turley. Includes Cemetery inscriptions for Zie McFann and wife Annie; Joseph McFann, and Roxie McFann.

Notes and Credits:

1. Dates of birth and death for Amaziah, his wife, and their ten children are from Reda Cooper, granddaughter of Vernon McFann. Dates of birth for all of the children of Andrew J. McFann except Amaziah were given on the 1897 Questionaire in A. J. McFann's pension file. The child named Cyrus in that document may be the same person as Amaziah, since Cyrus does not appear in any of the census records and Amaziah is between Jacob and William in age.

2. According to the 1900 census, Amaziah's wife Annie had 6 children, 6 of whom were still living at the time. According to the 1910 census, she had 10 children, 8 of whom were still living. Evidently, 4 were born between 1900 and 1910 and two of them died.

3. Descendants of Amaziah McFann include Angie Williams, Wanda Malone Cooper, and Reda Cooper, all descendants of Vernon McFann.
