David Farrar & Judith Stoddard

I am happy to be able to transfer the memorials for David Farrar & Judith Stoddard to you.

We have been in touch via this one way communication a few times, and things have always seemed to go okay.

I was a District 5 Chaplain for 2009 & 2010... but probably not the same State.

Sincerely, Tim Cooper

Hello Farrar. I called the courthouse today as the cemetery is open. They have no Luthy of any first name listed. Sorry, Lynn

Regarding Ida Farrar
According to the obituary for the son of Ida Farrar buried in OK, the Ida Farrar in your family has Langley as part of her name, so was this her maiden name or from a previous marriage?

These are some genealogy records for the Ida Chambliss Farrar in Newton Chapel Cemetery where Charley and Martha Chambliss are also buried:

The only thing I cannot reconcile is the fact that both markers show the same years. The Ida Farrar in AR died April 16, 1986 and the Ida Farrar in OK is shown to have died April 1, 1986, a small discrepancy.

Please let me know what you find out. I will leave my entry until it can be determined who is where. As a side note, my husband knew the Ida Farrar who is in Newton Chapel, visited her in the nursing home, and this Ida Farrar had no children. Small community, everyone knows everyone. :)

Regarding Ida Chambliss Farrar
I found the other entry:

Where is Mrs. Farrar really buried? Or perhaps there was a cremation and the ashes divided? It needs to be cleared up where she is.

I believe this is my 3rd or 4th great grandfather. His son, James Hunter jr was my 2nd or 3rd grandfather. James hunter jr went to indiana and had children in marion county indiana. i have traced this grandfather back to north carolina but have hit a stump. my email is: i also have a tree on, filbert/hunter tree 2.

Margaret Fisher Trowbridge #132483642 & Margaret Farrar Trowbridge #132483657
I believe these two records are for the same person, Margaret Farrar Trowbridge and have been confused. Margaret Farrar was the wife of "Col." John Trowbridge and mother of "Capt" John Trowbridge

Would be very interested. Thanks, Jackie

Infant McKesson at Holy Sepulchre
Have you any idea where the "Stillborn Plot" is located? I've been going to Holy Sep for about 4 years now and have never seen such a section. Perhaps you should call the cemetery to get an exact location. You may also find locations for other McKessons there and this infant might be buried on that plot.

Leonard Farrar Sr.

Thank you for getting back to me. I descend from Richard Farrar who married Hannah Warren. Based on DNA, I believe that Richard was most likely the son of Leonard's brother, Stephen Farrar.

The reason I asked about the tombstone inscription is that there has been a long running discussion about whether a Rene or Reynard Farrar found in early Virginia is the same man as Leonard Farrar Sr. If they were different individuals, then they were brothers, the sons of Richard and Elizabeth Sanders Farrar of Goochland and Pittsylvania Counties, Virginia. "Rene" was born in 1761 but Leonard says in his pension application he was born in 1764. So are they the same person? Your reading of the tombstone would support the idea that they are one and the same. Yet Alvahn Holmes, in her book "Some Farrar's Island Descendants" states that the tombstone gives a birth date of 4 August 1761.

May I ask if the tombstone actually gives a birthdate or if it is being computed from a statement that Leonard was X days, Y months, and Z years old? Maybe Mrs Holmes calculated wrong. I'm also curious if someone used flour or shaving cream to decipher the inscription.

Any assistance you can give me is much appreciated. I couldn't find your private e-mail address so here's mine:


Thank you,

William Houston

Leonard Farrar Sr.
Has anyone visited the Giersa-Drace Cemetery and actually verified the birthdate of Leonard? The photo on Find-A-Grave is not legible due to weathering and I have seen printed accounts that say the stone has an 1761 date. Thank you.

I just uploaded a photo as per your request and hope it is to your liking. I also took a very beautiful photo of the other side, which reads "Poole", and has very beautiful fancy carving of flowers. Would you like that uploaded also? It is of very good quality with excellent lighting.

It would help me to fulfill your photo request if you would call All Soul's Cemetery and ask where she is buried. Thank you :-).

RE: Happy Valentines Day

I tried to find a death record online in Missouri, but could find none. There was a death index listing for Charles J. Markle in 1933 in Illinois, as well as another Charles Markle. Perhaps one of them is your Charles and his Illinois death certificate would give a clue to his burial place.

Best wishes!

Renee Schneider
Farrar / Woodmere, Detroit, MI
Can you please call the office for exact grave locations? I was fulfilling some requests last year & found the staff will NOT give out info or maps unless you are family.

This makes it very difficult for Find A Grave members. I do have some maps to work with, but not all. Also this is a very large, old cemetery with NO lot markers. Many headstones have fallen, sunk & are ground covered. I have pinpointed some that were 4-6 inches down.

Since the cemetery staff is unhelpful, any other help for the volunteers would be appreciated.

elizabeth Cade Photo request, Greenwood Cemetery, Jackson MS
A volunteer with the Historical Assoc for the cemetery responded to me when I was trying to find the grave to honor your request
The first name on the list is Elizabeth Care who is listed in the records as being buried in the old cemetery in 1880. I can guess where she is buried but there is no extant marker for her. She is the sister of Cynthia Thomson, my relative over in section 2 where the nice bench is now, and the mother of the niece of Cynthia Cade also buried in that lot. There is another daughter, Ann Cade Tabley buried in Section 5 and a grandson is buried in the old cemetery with his mother Ada Cade.

Susie Jackson Farrar
I would have had her with just the middle initial, according to what is on the tombstone, and someone who had better knowledge of the family than myself would have requested that Jackson was her middle name. Unfortunately, due to the high volume of SAC requests, it would be impossible to keep records from each request. If you have information that is contrary to what was already submitted, I would certainly take it under consideration.

RE: James H. Biggs photo
I photographed the entire cemetery several years back. That was the only Biggs headstone in the cemetery at the time. I suppose there could be an unmarked grave or a new burial.
The census information that is posted in the memorial is for Stoddard County, MO. This Hilton cemetery is in Barry County.
Did your relative live in Barry County, MO? What are his birth and death dates?
