My family has a family Bible with the following information:
Wash Farries married Jody Wilson in Williamsburg, VA (probably in the 1840's.)Wash and Jody had at least 1 son, J. Samuel C. Farries, born in Charlotte, NC.He married Coeline Stinson.
Samuel Farries & Coeline Stinson's children were: --Elizabeth (Lizzy) Farries, who married Ferd Hobbs in Charlotte, NC.They had 2 children who lived, Sam Hobbs and Lena Hobbs. --Jane Farries, who married Jon Everett, no children. --Margaret (Maggie) Farries, who married John Featherstone and lived in Christmasville, TN. --L. William Farries, who married Mattie Moore. --David Walter Farries, who married Nancy Alice Patton.He was born in Charlotte, NC, 10/21/1854 and died on 12/27/1916 in Celeste, OK.Nancy Alice Patton was born in 1863 or 1864 in McKenzie, TN, and died in Christmasville, TN, on 1/15/1897.
David Walter Farries changed his name to "Farris" when he was married just because the marriage certificate had been made out incorrectly.He and Nancy Alice Patton had the following children: --David Thomas Farris, born 1887 in McKenzie, TN, and died 1890 in Christmasville, TN. --George Taylor Cleveland Farris, born 11/4/1888 in Christmasville, TN, married Lillian Alma Staten on 6/18/1911 in Mead, OK, and died in Carrizo Springs, TX, in 1989.They had 9 children, including my father, Joe Weldon Farris. --Dorsey Bill Farris, born 3/1893 in Christmasville, TN, and died 2/10/1973 in Durant, OK. --Ocie Neat Farris, born 1/6/1895 in Christmasville, married Edward Wilson and died in Cisco, TXThey had at least 1 son, Thomas Wilson.
