The following post is the result of a search by my cousin, who is in possession of the ACTUAL death record of Mary Farnham Calcote who m. Cade Calcote:
We have finally found evidence of Mary R. Farnham Calcote's true Father. Her Death record, found in New Orleans, states that she was the daughter of Baricouis (mispelled) Farnham, a Native of Mississippi She was 75 years old, and departed life on the 13th of March, 1931. She was born about 1856 ; her mother was Emily Susannah Evans, and had two brothers; John Daniel and Thad C. Farnham. Her father was remarried after Emily's death , to Cora Jane Hathorn Loflin and had sons, Daniel Crawford., Webster Benjamin, and Joseph Harris Farnham. The Farnhams are said to have come from Michigan to the Mississippi Territory in the early 1800's. We continue to search for links to New England and the Ralph Farnham line. Wilson E. Farnham Jr.
