Joseph is my (3x) great-Grandfather on my Mother's side. Our Farquhar line basically stops with him being born in either Tennessee or North Carolina in 1808. We don't know anything before that..ie his parents are a question mark. Three different census records say he was born in Tennessee, but the headstone on his grave says Lincoln Co, N.C.
We know he relocated to Fayette County, Texas as early as 1849 because he married Adeline Rabb there. They went on to have many children together in La Grange.
I've looked over 'Nine Early Texas Families and Their Origins, by the Rev. James Ramsey and found lots of Farquhars from N.C. that end up in TX.. yet no mention of Joseph, or his wife.
Anybody know anything about this Farquhar family?
I am related through their son William Edward Farquhar..who married Frances "Fannie" Carter.
