from -- HISTORY OF MACOMB COUNTY, pg. 907.
HENRY F. FARR, born at Parish, Oneida Co., N. Y., on December 30, 1819, came with his parents from Livingston County, N. Y., to Chesterfield in 1833. Mr. Farr received the education which the early schools of the East, as well as Macomb County, offered. When leaving New York, his father had $600, together with his personal property; the Western trip cost at least $100; the 160 acres which his father located cost $350; a cow and yoke of oxen, with provisions, etc., almost swallowed up the balance of the cash capital; the children, as well as the parents, exerted themselves to be equal to the occasion, and succeeded in their battle with the wilderness. Mr. Farr remembers attending as many as six logging bees and one raising in one week. He married Miss Julia Ann Clemons, of Livingston County, N. Y., September 28, 1843; has had four children--William Farr, born Aug 1844; and Merrit S., born in September, 1850. He takes a deep interest in educational affairs, holding the offices Director and Moderator for a number of years; at the period of his settlement, red deer were so plenty that he could kill them at pleasure.
