William Francis Marion Herring

In my last post from almost two years ago, I wrote about my Francis Marion Herring brick wall.  When I display my fan chart out to 7 generations there are no empty spots, except after Francis.  It is rather annoying!

Well, tonight, I think I have broken through this brick wall!

I believe I have found Francis, or rather William as I shall refer to him from now on, along with his father, an uncle and his family, and his Herring grandparents all living on the same farm in Clinton, Kansas in 1865.  A year after he was born and his mother Frances Kendall passed away.

This is first source I have acquired about William's father, likely his grandparents, Uncle and his family.  Know that I have a solid source, progress should hopefully be rapid!
