Mary was born in 1723 in North Carolina and married John Moon Sr. in 1740 in I believe Craven County.They both died and are buried in Randolph County.
Family trees differ as to who her parents are.Some of the ones I have seen are:
Henry Farmer & Sarah Ward Jasper Farmer & wife unknown Thomas Farmer & wife unknown John Farmer & Mary Unknown Thomas Farmer & Agnes Nicholson
I have tried to narrow the list down somewhat by process of elimination:
1. Henry & Sarah Farmer (the most popular) were born & died in Henrico/Chesterfield VA 2. Have found no information on Jasper Farmer 3. John Farmer was born in England & died in PA (no info on Mary) 4. Thomas & Agnes Farmer were born in VA...Thomas died in 1723 in VA...Agnes married James Bynum circa 1727/1728 & moved by 1732/33 to Edgecombe County NC.They brought 5 small children with them, Thomas, James, William, Isaac & Elizabeth Farmer (no Mary)
That leaves only Thomas Farmer and wife unknown as the best bet for her parents.I found a copy of a will dated 18 Oct 1760 for Thomas Farmer in Chowan County in which he lists as one of his children, a daughter named Mary.I realize this is not much on which to base her parentage.I'm hoping someone knows this family and can tell me if these are her parents or if she is the daughter of someone else.
