Here is where it gets messy, Virginia Fants.. some of the best documented trees are all over the place on this guy.. His own Great Great grandson calls him Phant? Ephraim who is son of ( according to who's tree you are reading) George, Abner, Unknown and Unknown) I found him because I found THIS on Find A Grave also:
Birth: Feb. 12, 1917
Death: Jan. 8, 1945
Willie S. Fant
Technical Sergeant, U.S. Army Air Forces
368th Bomber Squadron, 306th Bomber Group, Heavy
Entered the Service from: Arkansas
Awards: Distinguished Flying Cross, Air Medal with 5 Oak Leaf Clusters
When I looked his father, Robinson S. Fant had 24 (Twenty Four) !! Children with 2 wives... so there are a whole lot of folks who are not sure which Fants are them..
Ephraim is father of a David J. Fant ( Not David Jones) who in turn is father of Robinson Samuel..
South Carolina to Arkansas to Texas.. Anyone closely matching Bert Fant take note...
Reason I found Willie S. Fant is I have found a family spelling their name FAUNT in Georgia..
Reddin Faunt Richard Faunt Edward E. Faunt..all born c. 1800 and I also find Redin Fant living in North Carolina in 1840.. seems to be the same man..
A Richard Faunt the same age is also found in Missouri later on but in Dec. 6,1831 he marries Sarah Magan in Hall Georgia..
Edward E. Faunt marries a Mary Hill around the same time in Putnam Georgia January 1825
OK.. This is Richard..found also..
Birth: Jul. 10, 1810
South Carolina, USA
Death: May 27, 1880
