Early life and family
He was born in 1804, according to reports.
He was born in Georgia to Isham Fannin, a soldier of the War of 1812. Walker was his mother's last name. Despite the fact that she was not married to his father, the Walker family raised him. His ancestors, who spelled the family name Fanning, lived in America during the Revolutionary War, a family with fractured loyalties during the war. James W. Fannin, the son of Isham, omitted the letter "g" from his name and settled in Georgia.
Fannin was enrolled in West Point's United States Military Academy on July 1, 1819. He resigned from the academy on November 20, 1821. Despite the fact that he seemed to have been academically inept and was often late or absent from classes, he had received a letter from a cousin urging him to return to Georgia right away to care for elderly grandparents.He married Minerva Forte. Missouri Pinckney's daughter, Missouri Pinckney, was born on July 17, 1829. In 1832, a second daughter, Minerva, was born physically impaired. He enlisted in the service and worked as a merchant while living in Columbus, Georgia. He was a member of the Temperance Society and served as a judge for a brief period of time in Muscogong, County. Fannin was engaged illegally transporting slaves into the state of Georgia by 1832, as per Georgia Constitution of 1798, Article IV, Section 11, which states "No future importation of slaves into the state, whether African or otherwise." Prior to such emancipation, the legislature will have no power to pass legislation for the emancipation of slaves without the permission of each of the respective owners. They will have no power to prevent emigrants from either of the United States or this state from taking with them such people as slaves under the rule of any one of the United States."
"Importing slaves into the state is forbidden (slave traders) – except for personal use. Those moving to a slave county must notify the county Clerk of Superior Court. (1817) – Travelers visiting state are exempt. A child's owner may sell, hire, or loan slaves to him for one year. – Residents of another state and seamen are forbidden from entering the state. Restrictions on the import of slaves from other states were reversed, reinstated, and then banned permanently by 1856.
