RE: Anna M. Weisiger Adams 127520354
Thank you for your reply to my query and your interest. It was a longshot but since Iíd never heard of Daniel having a daughter Anna and since the stone looked bigger & older than children I was just wondering if his mother Anna Mobrey Weisiger Adams had perhaps been buried there before wife Anna Bullus Adams & Gen. Daniel Weisiger Adamsí marriage had ended. Many of Anna M. Weisiger Adamsí children were born in Frankfort, KY. Some died young there and the girls who lived & married I have not yet traced. Some say Anna M. W. Adams survived Judge George for some years, but I have found nothing yet. Yes, it would be nice if she were buried with George. The War caused so much upheaval.

Gen Daniel W. Adams IS buried in Greenwood Cem. in the CSA section, by the way. He is in an unmarked grave, near or next to his brother, Gen. Wm. Wirt Adams & Wirtís wife Sarah Mayrant Adams. Daniel had a second family with many descendants some of whom I met at a Frankfort, KY, reunion in 2009 of descendants of Annaís parents, Capt. Daniel Weisiger III & Lucy Price Weisger. Life is full of surprises.

Thank you again for your quick response and all the good work you do. With appreciation, Ann

Sorry, that is a mistake. The Mary Jane I sent you was Edward Farrell's sister. Mary Jane Farrell is Byrd Todd's wife - same name. Named after aunt.

RE: Elma J Todd
Thank you so much! It looks good!
Baby Elma Joseph Todd is a Jr if you want to add.
If you could add Baby Elma's mother -
153079040 - Leone Gilmore Todd.
Baby Elma died from appendicitis.
He was born Aug 3, 1928 and died in May 1930 in Jackson, MS.
I am not sure why they buried him with his grandfather, I sure wish I knew now.
Thank you so much!

Elma J Todd
Hi Linda,

I was looking for Elma Todd today to see if he was already listed, as he is my maternal grandfather. I noticed that the headstone says Byrd Todd. Byrd is my great grandfather and Elma is the son. Elma is actually in Lakewood and I have added that today. I have a picture to post also. Can you please change Elma to Byrd as the primary? I will say this, I think my mothers older brother, Elma Joseph Todd 2 years old, may also be in the same grave as his grandfather. I would like to link them together, also.
Thank you for all your contributions, love and care!

Life was miserable for females before the mid 20th Century. So many died in childbirth or from being worn out giving birth so often. And were considered property of men, just a little better off than slaves. Not able to own their own wages, if married, or property in their own name. If they inherited real property, they had to have a husband, and if single, find a husband to acquire the property.

In my line, a great great aunt, married a Nicholas Lanier, she died, and he married her cousin, this one listed as "idiot" in the 1850 Census.

Which could have been simply bipolar or some personality disorder.

Reminiscent of how we replace pets these days, when one dies we go out and adopt another.

On the woman's part, not much of a career choice. Wife and mother, seamstress or prostitute (and often the last two were analogous)

I have the story of Cynthia Farrar Cade Thompson.
Daughter of Landon C Farrar (who was son of Richard Farrar and Susan Shelton) and Ann Walker.

Landon died in 1828 in Dickson County, TN. Ann had not the means to tutor her three children, so they were placed into the guardianship of her sister and her sisters husband.

She moved to Perry Co, Ala to live with her bachelor brother. Her father died in 1836 leaving her an estate, and she then sued for custody of her own children.

Children were Robert Shelton Farrar,
Cynthia Shelton Farrar married Josiah Cade
Elizabeth Walker Farrar married William Wiley Cade.

If Cynthia is your ancestress then you have lineage to William Farrar, who arrived in Jamestown aboard the Neptune in 1618, married the widow Cecily Jordan (an Ancient Planter), they had three children, one of which Col William Farrar married Mary Baugh and from him your and my line descend.

Are you related to Annie Eaks Farrar?

I've been working with her great great grandson.

It appears that the father of William A Farrar, her son, was either a bigamist or she actually never married William H. Farrar. He was a Railroad Employee who in 1907 became an insurance salesman for Columbian Woodmen. The father of William A Farrar was William Henry Farrar memorial # 28526737.

William Henry Farrar and Annie Eaks purchased land Jan 1907 In Lamar Mississippi.

William Henry Farrar drove his buckboard to the station after William A was born, boarded a train and was never seen again.
According to the 1910 Census he was married to a Laura Kay Farrar had a son William P(owell)Farrar and Thomas C Farrar.

I suggests P for Powell because the grandfather of William Henry Farrar was William Powell Farrar, and incidentally a Dr William P Farrar signed his death certificate..most assuredly this William Powell Farrar was a nephew
