In 1782 John is on the Montgomery Co., VA tax list. In 1789 he is living in the area of the Big Falls of Cole (Coal) Creek and the head of Gordon Creek near John Murphy, the Reddicks, George Martin and others. Son John Jr. lived on Chestnut, Meadow and Crooked Creeks along with the Bedsauls, Samuel Blevins, Jeremiah Clonch, Timothy Murphy and others. Jacob Fanning lived on Chestnut Creek/Crooked Creek area near John Clonch, the Farmers and others. In 1788 Thomas moved somewhere near Fishers Mountain in Surry Co., NC where he appears on the 1790 census. Thomas' wife is though to have been Ann Howard a daughter of Abraham Howard and Jane Howard Allen, who in her will probated 1805 in Surry Co., names a daughter Ann Fanning. Another son of John's was Joseph Fanning who married Barbara Davis (d/o John and Mary Davis) and later migrated to Giles Co., TN (1809), Lauderdale Co., AL, Morgan Co., Illinois and finally to Madison Co., Arkansas. The Fannings were "Hard Shell" Baptists. Jacob and Nathan are the names of two more sons of John (and brothers of Thomas on the Swift list).
