Fannie married Mandeville Farley 10 Dec 1954 Pineville, Wyoming Co. WV. On the marriage license she listed Minta & Wash Lilly as her parents. They were also listed as parents in her obituary from 18 Oct 1974.

On the 1900 Census where Arminta is listed as a Lilly living in the house with Oron & Martha there are several children listed to her. I have found birth records for her children Levi & Charles, last name listed as Solesbury, not Lilly, with no father's name listed. Which may confirm the thought that Aaron was fathering children with Arminta while still married to Martha Whitlock.

I am trying to figure out who the Martha J. Solesberry, 14 yrs, who was living in his home in 1880 belongs to. There is also a 5 yr old Martha Lilly living with him & Martha in 1870 at the home of his father, Robert Lilly.

There is the possibility that she is the same Martha who married George Washington Farley. Parents of the above mentioned Mandeville. They are also my great great grandparents.

I have a note made by a previous researcher regarding this line back in 1955 that states "George Farley married Martha Shrewsberry whose mother married Wash Lilly. This is what makes me think I'm in the right family.
