I am very interested to find out the story of Mahala Attilla Farr and John Wesley Collett. I believe Mahala was the daughter of Smiley Meslin
Farr (from North Carolina, settled in Grant county, Indiana) and that she was a school teacher. Supposedly she married Charles Collett's (Charles was my Great Grandfather) younger brother, John Wesley Collett (b. 1867) less than 3 weeks before he died. (Married 5/29/1894 and he died 6/18/1894) Mahala was about 14 years older than John Wesley. Does anyone in the Farr family have the details on this?
