Fannie Arrick/Orrick
and William Baugus

Fannie is apparently the first and only child of Margaret Qualls and William B. Nunley. Margaret was first married to John Orrick/Arrick who was killed at Shiloh in 1862. Margaret remarried to Nunley on Sept 15th, 1867 in Grundy Co TN after his wife Sarah Jane Smartt died. Fannie moved to Hardin Co TN as did 2 of her brothers - John and James but unsure why, maybe because Qualls family were there.

Baugus genealogy researchers have referred to her as Fanny AMICK.

The biggest mystery to me is why does Fannie and her mom Margaret use the Arrick name, even though she is daughter of Nunley which is confirmed by her her death certificate?

Why did Fannie use the Arrick name, and not her father's name Nunley?

Is it true that her birthday is Nov 22, 1867 and that Margaret and Nunley were married on Sep 15, 1867?

Is "John Nonley" who is shown on her death certificate as father a mistake?

Is there an obituary?

Why did she and 2 of her brothers move to Hardin Co TN in the 1880's? Was it to be near Qualls?

Are there any pictures?

The Arrick Name

Many Arricks pronounced their name "Ark" and it is spelled that way in many branches in several decades.

It also appears that many Arrick families are really Orricks.

And, there is also the problem of transcription, where clearly written 'O's are transcribed as 'A'.
Here is the 1850 Warren County Census showing A's and O's

Ultimately, this means a search for Arricks must include names such as Orrick, Orick, Arke, Orouch, O'rourk, Orio; and possibly more bizarre variants such a Yeorick, Clark, and Horrock.



The 1870 census was difficult. Many for Warren county census originals are undreadable.
Here they are in Grundy Co TN Census page at the bottom.
Grundy is right next to Warren.
