Wrenn family

Surnames: Wrenn
I am looking for the family of Fannie Mary (Mae) Wrenn. She was born in 1892 in NC and died in 1919, also in NC. She was married to Charles Slaughter. Her father's name was James B. Wrenn (1861-1930 NC). I am uncertain of her mother's name. Census records are hard to decipher but I think it was Delila Jane. Maiden name unknown. "Delila" was born in Jan 1861. Fannie and Charles had at least two daughters, Bertha (b. abt 1915) and Janie (1917-2004). They possibly had a son, Gattis (b. abt 1914) as well. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

Jessica,
You can find the information you need in one of the three volumes of the Person County Heritage Books. The Person Co library has copies as well as the Person Co Historical Society.

Jessica,
I will look through my volumes to see which exact volume the history is in. You can then contact the library or the historical society if you wish or I can try to get the information to you. Let me know what will work best.

Hi Jessica.
I'm not researching this family, but I do have a little info for you. You sound like you found some records, including at least the 1900 census, so using those names I went back to 1870 Person County, North Carolina, Woodsdale, Image 6,#37/37:
JAMES S. WRENN - 43 - M - W - FARMER - NC
SARAH WRENN - 28 - F - W - KEEPING HOUSE-NC
ELIZABETH WRENN -20 -F - W - AT HOME - NC
WILLIAM WRENN - 18 -M - W -AT HOME - NC
SIDNEY T. WRENN - 15 -M - W -FARM LABORER-NC
JAMES B WRENN - 9 - M -W - AT HOME- NC
HARRIET V. WRENN- 5 - F - W - AT HOME- NC
CAROLINE G. WRENN- 3 -F -W - AT HOME - NC
JUDA M. WRENN - 1 - F -W - AT HOME- NC

JOHN WRENN (son) -W - 5 - S - NC NC NC
MARTHA WRENN (dau) -W - 2 -S - NC NC NC
NELIA WRENN (dau) - W - 1 -S - NC NC NC

Marriage Record:
JAMES WRENN - married - SARAH CARVER, January 17, 1865 Person County,NC
(this would be the parents of James B. Wrenn)

As I said, I assume you saw the 1900 census, so I won't bother posting it here. By the way, the mother's name shows 'DELILA'. The 1910 Census shows "Mary F. Wrenn" still living at home with her parents.
1910 Person County,Holloway Twp.,Dist.145,Image 22,#22/22:

LONIE SLAUGHTER(wife) - W - 20 - M1 - 3 -1 -1 - NC NC NC
RUTH SLAUGHTER(dau) - W - 1 -S - NC NC NC

(It looks like Charles was previously married here)

By 1920, Fanny Mary was dead.

(It now looks like Charles had 2 wives die btn 1910-1920)
