Hi Lynn - Here is what I have:

George Fanning - born 1810 Eden Townland, Finvoy Parish (near Ballymoney) County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The family attended the Drumreagh Presbyterian Church. He actually arrived in Kent County in 1868.
Mary McLees - born about 1820 in Glenkeen Townland, Agivey Parish, County Derry, Northern Ireland. Her father was Daniel McLees. The children were as follows:
1) Rachel Fanning - born 1839 and died 22 February 1910
2) Sarah Fanning - born 1839 (twins ?) married Robert Edwards
3) Ellen Fanning - born 1841 (my GG Grandmother) married Thomas Smyth and died in 1909 (she is buried in Maple Leaf Cemetary - Chatham, Ontario)
4) Elizabeth Fanning - married James McGregor
5) John Fanning
6) James Fanning
7) George Fanning Jr.
8) Daniel Fanning - born 1851 died 18 February 1880.

Do you have any information that I do not have ?
