RE: Elizabeth Boren Farr
I double checked and indeed on page 216 of Chloe's book the photo is there and it is labeled as Frances Minerva (nee Farr) Branom, and the photo includes her husband John Branom.

My copy is a copy of a copy and I've had it 20 years or more. I suggest you try the library in Maryville, TN, or in Marshfield, MO. Also, in October is the annual Farr Family reunion. I might also suggest that you contact cousin Rose Scarlet who posted photos to the same memorial you did and ask her as she coordinates the event and may have a better idea how to obtain a copy. Sadly, Chloe Farr Todd has been gone a few years since 2004, but her daughter comes to the reunions. I can ask her when I see her in October.

Elizabeth Boren Farr
The photo you posted as Elizabeth Boren Farr is found in Chloe Farr Todd's book from the early 1980s and is depicted there as Minerva, not her mother.

Hello Lisa, Samuel J. Farr is my 3rd Great Grandfather and I have never been able to find a photo of him in my years of research. The posted photo is that of his son-in-law, John Branom, a Civil War veteran of Webster County, Missouri. Hope this can be corrected. Thanks, Rick Manning

Farrs in Blount County TN
Hi Lisa,

I am planning a visit with my husband to Blount County TN next week to conduct some research on my "brick wall", Alexander Farr (Fair). He was indentured as a bond boy to a Robert McReynolds at a very young age in 1837. I have the court record of the indenture but no other info. He later moved to Fayette County IL and married my great grandmother, Susan Chatham. I am trying to connect Alexander with one of the Farrs during the 1830s in that area, so that is the purpose of my trip/vacation. I would like to correspond with you by email a bit if you are willing and first ask you which "Farr" you are a descendent of during the period of the early to mid 1800s. If you would so kindly email me, my email address is

Warm Regards,
Connie (Fair) Vick

RE: Ramey
I really walked around today and found another Ramey, he is #74371976, not sure if part of your family, but a really nice spot under the tree. Sylvia

Hi Lisa,
He doesn't have a marker at the cemetery. It would be right next to Charles Sect M M-69 and probably with Sarah Faye Sect M M-68. James R. Ramey Sect M M-68. Sincerely, Sylvia

Bernice & Joseph Welsh
I transferred them. I didn't notice the typo on Joseph's memorial. I had input WELCH instead of WELSH. You may want to correct it since I can no longer edit.

RE: Elizabeth E Hill Blankenship
Lisa, you've got me stumped. I was not aware of the surname Hill, since all I had was Lee. I have no knowledge of her parents or biological family. If you can help to research this, I certainly would appreciate it.

RE: Elizabeth E Hill Blankenship
I just did my own research and her maiden name is Lee - it is on their son, Francis' death cert & I found the marriage record as well - so I have changed this info - this is what happens when you assume someone is sending the correct info!
