J. F. McFarland was married to Fannie King, the daughter of Mary C. Wilson King and Benjamin King. Mary C. King is buried in this same cemetery.
In the 1900 census, Mary King is listed in the household of J. F. McFarland, Fannie, McFarland and their daughter Rosa. The last entry is that of Mary King and she is said to be Mother-in-law. Mary was a widow and had only been married for 4 years before becoming a widow.
Fannie McFarland is said to have had 2 children only 1 of which was still living. Bethlehem Cemetery shows a J. F. or J. E. McFarland born 9 Aug 1884 and died 5 Sep. 1894. Due to the fact that the 1890 censuses were destroyed by fire there is no way of knowing whether said child is male or female. The stones are so old and moss covered that they are hard to read. One might imagine that he was a J. F. McFarland Jr. but there is no way of proving that either.
I cannot be sure where Fannie is buried but there are three stones in a row that look like they are all McFarlands and all are of similar design but J. F, McFarland is the only one still readable.
J. E. McFarland (1884 - 1894)*
