Frances Rogers Adair was born 22 April 1818 in Franklin County, Tennessee, United States to James Rogers (1760-) and died 23 February 1847 Mt. Pisgah, Union County, Iowa, United States of unspecified causes. She married Thomas Jefferson Adair (1814-1895) 26 January 1836 in Pickens County, Alabama.
Mount Pisgah was a refugee way station from 1846 to 1852 along the Mormon Trail between Garden Grove and Council Bluffs. Today it is marked by a tall monument on a nine-acre state presertve which contains exhibits, historical markers, and a reconstructed log cabin. However, little remains from the 19th century except a cemetery memorializing the 300 to 800 emigrants who died while passing through or residing in the community.
Fanny was one of a dozen Adair/Mangum to die here with her mother-in-law Rebecca Brown Adair and several nieces and nephews.
