BTW, don't go by in this area.. they have it all wrong. Because Eugene Wellington Farrar was the first white child born in Dupage County Illinois, you can look him up. The family history can also be found if you look up Downer's Grove IL because they were one of the first families there.

You can contact me at

RE: Farrars of Downers Grove, Illinois
Thanks, Bonnie.
If you have access to any information on these Farrars, via anything public records, lib. sources, anything, please post whatever relationships, etc. you can find. That will make it much easier for me.
I am descended from the Missouri group of Farrars, but most Farrars in the US are related.
I'm working with a group of other Farrars to get the Farrars graves and records of where they've gone, a bit of bios, etc. organized, nationwide.
Sty cool out there.
Cordially, Becky
