I wouldn't bet the family farm on this data but I do feel
it . It is a combination of Family TreeMaker entries and
two ladies in Trimble Co Kentucky who have done mountains of work
volumes of documentation of this FARLEY line. Also, several
have personal knowledge of. There is MUCH more available on some
Thanks for your reply. I don,t remember any of your Farley Name on my list. It don,t mean there isn,t a connection .I haven,t out enough about them yet.I no my Grand father had been married before to who I don,t no. when he married my Grand Mother Mary Elizabeth Kirkendall Pierce in 1892. He had a daughter name Mary Elizabeth Farley & could be other children too..I new her but was to young to ask question.I have his veterans papers that gave his birth place as Manchester ,England.The papers say he had lived in PA. Ohio,He was in Soldiers home in Levanworth ,Kans. He then went to AR. & back to Kans and died there 1911.I can,t find when he came to the US or who his parents are.
If I find any thing I,ll let you no. Thanks. Stella
I am also a Farley and have recently developed an interest in tracing family ancestry. Unfortunately, I am in a similar position as you mentioned of yourself. I only have information back to my GR Grandfather
and vague at that. If any of the below sounds familiar can you reply?
George Robert Farley (b. Abt 1881, d. not avail right now) believed to be from New York (state or city?) married (when exactly?) Savannah Marie Gimblin (b. 1/1891 d. 1/16/1981) believed to be from New York. Savannah was apparently the youngest of 6 daughters
, each of the whom died from Cholera (?).
George and Savannah had several children. They included a Ronald Luis Farley (b. 1917 still living) whom married Mary Elizabeth Branstetter (b. 1919 d.6/1993) in Northern California (Chico or Redding). These are my grandparents.
My grandfather Frederick Carl Farley came from Jackson Mississippi. He married, lived and retired in Brady and North Platte, NE. He had two children Donald and Barbara who married Janet Mars and Jay Beerman.
I am a direct decendent of the Edward Farley b 1770 in Va, d 1832 in ILL. My gggrandfather, Joseph Farley is buried here in San Diego where he mined gold after the Civil War.
I have research work done by Olivia Farley Anderson and Lowell Goar
I'd love to compare notes with you. Please write me directly at BndrBill@aol.com

If you know about all of the Farleys then you are the person I want to talk with. I have been looking for accurate information of my line going back from my Father, Edward Farley whose Father was Shelly Farley. It is my understanding that the Father of Shelly was known as Wix Farley but was named Wilkerson Harrison Farley. From that point on I am totally lost and do not even know for certain about dates for the most recent family members. Kind cousins have shared their information with me so I would like to know if your information conflicts or supports what we have. I hope to talk with you and others who might help.
My Line of Farley's Originate in MA. in 1810, and are in Amboy, N.Y. Osewgo Co.( David C. Farley) Later: Found in Redfield N.Y. Osewgo Co. And Later; David's William and family in Florence N.Y. Oneida Co. If any of this relates feel free to E-mail me.
Does anyone on this board have information on Farley's in upstate New York
I am looking for the lineage of Obediah Farley (1757-1836)who married Phoebe Hatcher. They came from Amelia County, Virginia to Tennesee (Sevier County), and then to Shelby County, AL. Obediah had a son named Matthew Farley whose daughter Agnes W. Farley married my ancestor James Hancock Wilson. Obediah's other children are Anne, Jane, Sarah, Daniel, and Mary. Obadiah applied for a Revolutionary War pension, but his applicaition was denied. I have heard that his father was named Abraham, but I do not know whether or not this is true. Any information would be much appreciated.
Can you resolve the Elizabeth Archer (or Aikens) controversy? Some researchers say there is "proof" in the Masonic records in Virginia that John Farley m. Elizabeth Archer, but I live in Florida and have no way to confirm it. This would truly be a monumental help to many Farley researchers. Many thanks.
