      I am the great, great grand daughter of Abner S. Nanney of California.
      b. 02 Aug 1844 Missouri (where?)
      1840 census has father in Shelby, Missouri with wife, Isabel Morgan
      m. 14 May 1871 Ann Eliza Cooper, Township 1, Lassen, Tehama, CA
      d. 03 Jan 1919 Tehama, CA

      I am confused about all the wives mentioned in this forum of his grandfather, Abner (Amy Harris, Amy Justice, Rebecca Street, etc.) Does anyone have actual proof of others besides Harris - proof was submitted)?

      Where does the middle name "Street" come from?
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      The Abner Nanny, son of Uriah who married Amy Harris in 1805 in Rutherford co., NC, died about 1822 in Warren Co., Ky.......his wife Amy is listed in the Nanny Cemetery as dying in 1871 in Warren co., Ky...so apparently he only had the one wife....they supposedly had a son, Abner S,. and he did marry Isabelle Morgan in 1836 in Warren co., Ky....someone sent me the estate papers of your Abner S. Nanny who died 1919...it said he was a resident of Linn co., Oregon but died in California..I'll have to dig some more on the Missouri angle...it's in a file here somewhere
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Now I'm really getting confused. There is an Abner L. Nanney, b. 1821 in KY was in Linn Oregon from US census records (1860,70, 80) with wife, Isabella and children. One place they have him as Abner H but that couldn't be correct because the children are correct and when I look at the writing, it could easily be an "S".

      His son, Abner Street Nanney, was born 02 Aug 1844 in Missouri (per death certificate) and migrated to Oregon with his father, Abner L. Nanney. Jr Nanney left Oregon between 1860 and 1871 when he married Eliza Ann Cooper in Tehama, CA. He stayed in Tehama until his death 03 Jan 1919 per death certificate.
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      These old ancestors used the same family name over and over...I found just an Abner Nanny in 1860 census age 16 by himself with another guy from Missouri Thomas W. Ryburn age 23...this was in Umpqua Co., Oregon Abner born in Missouri......now on the administration of estate papers fron Linn co., Oregon court, it says Abner C. Nanney was named to be the main admr, of Abner S. Nanney ... his heirs at law were .....Ida Woodward,(age 47) Lula Mckenzie..(age 45), Olive Childs,(Age 44)...Abner C. Nanney(age 42)......later the actual full names are Alice Ida Woodward, Lula P. McKenzie, Olive Childs...do these names jive with your Tehama, Ca. Abner?

      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Yes, Abner C. is his son, Abner Clinton Nanney, and his daughter, Ida, married Richard Lincoln Woodward in Tehama (sometimes she wrote it Ida Alice and other times she wrote it Alice Ida), CA. The other names are his daughter's, Olive Rowena Nanney and Lulu Rebecca Nanney, married names. Abner's wife, Ann Eliza Cooper, was the granddaughter of William B. Ide of the Ide Grisby wagon train (100 wagons) that passed through Oregon in 1845. He was also the first and only President of California Republic (before we joined the Union) so there is a lot of documentation on the family.

      The Abner in Umpqua could have been counted twice as he was counted in his father's household in the 1860 census in Santiam, Marion, Oregon. There was gold in Umpqua county and Abner may have traveled there to pan for gold. The age is correct. Santiam was flooded in 1861 and destroyed. It is close to Linn County where they eventually settled. I don't know how long it took to do the census in 1860 in Oregon but it was pretty much wilderness back then so he could have been counted twice. There certainly weren't mail-in forms like we have today! It must have been a hard job for the census workers in those days.

      Many of my relatives on the Oregon trail passed through the state and went on to Tehama County. The Nanneys must have arrived in Oregon between 1850-1855 as Clinton was born in Missouri in 1850 and John was born in Oregon in 1855. Those were big years for wagon trains. I can't find them on the 1850 census but I haven't looked that hard yet.

Abner and Ann Eliza had four children: Ida Alice b. 1872 (my ancestor), Lulu Rebecca b. 1874, Olive Rowena b. 1875, and Abner Clinton (below)

      Albert M. Nanney, b. abt 1905 California. Last known addresses, Orleans, Linn, Oregon, Barberton, Clark, Washington, and Harlowton, Wheatland, Montana around age 24.

      I don't have the descendants in a printable format yet so that's all I can give now. Contact me later 2011 and I might have it by then. For your information, Ann Eliza Cooper, Lulu, Olive and Abner Clinton played instruments in a traveling orchestra around Mt. Lassen, CA. See article below.

      Mother Ann Eliza with children Lulu, Ollie, and Abner C. Nanney

      With music in their veins, Lulu and Ollie played the violin, brother Abner played the guitar and with their mother, Ann Eliza, who played the organ, an instrument that folded down for transport, they formed a traveling orchestra. In Lulu's 1896 diary she related that she made $72.00 that year from her playing. The family traveled in a covered buckboard wagon to areas all over the valley (Lyonsville, Manton, Balls Ferry and Red Bluff) to play. Lulu's family was already established in the cattle business, as Abner Nanney had many holdings in the mountains, namely Morgan Springs, (Now the Hanna Ranch), Child's Meadows and Mountain Meadows out of Westwood, all of which were renamed in later years. Abner Nanney's family were descendants of William B. Ide, the first and only President of California.
