I have seen an ancestor reported as James Faries (Pencader Hundred, New Castle Co., DE) and after that Faris. One son is reported as Ferris.

Check out my posting on the Faris message Board re James Faris/Faries who married 1st. Elizabeth Moody and had 7 children, the first, Joseph Faris, b. 1794 moved to Fleming County, KY. James married 2nd Martha Anne Boyd and had two sons in 1822. He died in 1826.

Research has shown that he was the son of William Faris who served in the Delaware militia. Thus I was able to submit my father's application for the SAR and he was made a member.

I am descended from one of the last sons of James and Martha Ann who settled in Philadelphia.

The other son of James and Martha Ann, Levi, died in 1865 while serving with the 13th PA Cavalry. His widow and four children migrated to Butte Co CA in 1876.

Still hoping to find out if William was the immigrant ancestor and if so, when he came and from where.
