I am the last leaf on this branch of this Farthing tree (other than my own kids and grandkids). I have over the years, off and on tried to find out about my family from the past. I just happened onto this site and glad I did. I have learned alot and found many family memorials that I want to make sure are never forgotten. Thank you to those of you who have helped and are still helping people like me to find their roots.|

|SheWalksTheseHills||Thomas Brown Farthing, Reuben Farthing|
I'm trying to research Thomas Brown Farthing, his father was Reuben Pickett Farthing (born in N.C. in 1809, he was a minister and a farmer).
Thomas Brown Farthing was a soldier with the 1st North Carolina Cavalry, and he was at the battle of Yellow Tavern, Virginia, May 1864.
I am not related to the Farthing family, but I am compiling an exhibit for the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Yellow Tavern and I would like to include T.B. Farthing in the story. I was able to find his picture and information on this website:
Any information or help in this search would be wonderful! Thank you in advance.
I have been seriously working on my ancestors from Watatuga County, NC, for about 15 years. I find I am related to much of the county. I hope to print out copies of several of my families and place them in the Appalachian Collection at ASU for people like you. There is no reason to reinvent the wheel and no reason for people like us to work so hard just to find our roots.

No, I don't live in the state of Washington, Sherri, I live in North Carolina - not too far from where the Farthing and Stamey families lived.
The response from the state of Washington was in regard to my Barlow ancestors that migrated to Washington. I have found so many nice folks in that area that have helped me find many of my ancestors.

Thank you very much, Sherri, for your kindness in allowing me to add the pictures to my collection. I will be looking forward to seeing more of the pictures of Jane. I sent you a suggestion via Ormond's memorial and my email address is included at the bottom. Please add me to your contacts and feel free to write me directly anytime.

Thank you very much for adding the pictures, Sherri. They are great! May I add copies to my family tree data? I will add a note that they are from your collection. Pictures add so much.
I don't have many pictures of the Stamey family. I hope to be able to visit one of Jane's cousins in Newland (Avery County), NC sometime soon. I heard she has lots of old pictures.
Take care and thanks again!

Owonia's memorial number is: 43359206. The creator of her memorial is deceased thus I suggest you request a transfer since you are a relative.

I have transferred Ormand's memorial to you to manage.
BTW, I just noticed that I made a mistake when I told you that Ephraim Alexander Stamey (2nd husband of Jane) was a brother to my 2nd great grandfather, Rev. Elias Stamey. Ephraim was the son, not the brother, of Rev. Elias Stamey. And Ephraim was my great grand uncle.
After I talked to you, I went back to my family tree and Jane and I are related in several ways. AND, Jane and Ephraim were cousins! Jane's grandfather, George, was a brother to Ephraim's father, Rev. Elias. Thus, Jane's father, William Stamey, was a first cousin of Ephraim Stamey. Are you lost yet? LOL!
Anyway, Jane was my 'blood'cousin via both the Stamey side of my family and the Barlow (her mother was a Barlow) side. When she married Ephraim, she became my great grand aunt by marriage.
Ormand's sister, Owonia, has a memorial also. I forgot to check the number, but I'll send that to you later in case you haven't found her memorial.

Hi Sherri, I've transfered Sarah (Farthing) Adams to you. Anything
you can add will be appreciated, including linking additional kin.
Her husband was a brother of my 3 greats grandfather Wellington Adams. I haven't done as much work on this line at Find a Grave
yet as I'd like because I'm still trying to locate Wellington's daughter
Tennessee Virginia (Adams) Hilliard, my great-great-grandmother,
who is buried somewhere in Watauga or Avery Co., NC.. She died
sometime around 1910 and her husband, who was dying of Brites
disease went to live with his son in Montana and is buried in the
cemetery above what is now the ghost town of Kendal MT.
