From Larry Stroud:
Buried in the same cemetery are Willie Farrier, Bertie Farrier,Claude Farrier, Alice Conyers Farrier
1874-1909. Those graves would all be lost now had my mother not bought small headstones that contains the above information. No dates for Willie, Bertie and
Willie died at about age 18. He had been working somewhere north of here, Mammoth Spring or Mountain Home, in that area. He was madly in love with Cora Horn (she was not a Horn then) and she, at about age 16, was madly in love with him. So he was determined to come home for the weekend or a few days to see the love of his life. It was raining a lot of the way, and he got a ride on an uncovered wagon. The ride in the cold rain gave him pneumonia and as he lay dying, Miss
Cora begged her father time and time again to let her go see him but her father, disapproving of the
proposed marriage, refused to let her. Willie died without getting to see Cora again, or her see him. She
told my mother decades later that Willie was the love of her life and always remained so. Some years after Willie's death, she married a Horn, outlived him and then lived next door to my grandmother Myrtle Farrier as they rented opposite sides of a big old house in Cave City that was rented out as a duplex. Many are the summer evenings when we would sit on the shady front porch of that house and talk with Miss Cora.
When she was very elderly I interviewed her and wrote a newspaper article about here. That must have been in the early 1980s.

From Larry Stroud
Here are the dates on my Grandpa Samuel B. Farrier:
born Aug. 26, 1894, died May 15, 1956.
My grandmother, Myrtle Martin Farrier, was born Jan. 6, 1899 and died Sept. 26, 1971.
They are buried in Pleasant Valley Cemetery 10 miles west of Cave City. Take West Center Street in Cave City and keep following it, although the name changes at some point to Peter Martin Hill Road.
The cemetery is in Sharp Co, but just barely. The church is within sight of the bridge over Poke Bayou. If you drive west, on over the bridge, when you come off the bridge you are in Independence County.

This confirms Sadie was a Patterson, and Rufus & Beulah were her parents.
The children were all listed as born in Arkansas, so I would want to go with Sadie's birth state as Arkansas.
It also confirms George & Sadie were married so I would guess....Spring of 1920.

Notes for GERALD WYATTE FARRIER:
A shipmate who remembers a hero.
Chief Farrier was killed leading the initial fire parties in the battle against the fire on USS FORRESTAL, 29 July 1967, on Yankee Station in the Gulf of Tonkin. Farrier and all of his repair party (Repair 8) were killed in the first bomb explosion.
On 29 July 1967 the USS FORRESTAL was conducting combat operations off the coast of North Vietnam in the Gulf of Tonkin. FORRESTAL had joined USS ORISKANY and USS BON HOMME RICHARD five days earlier.
The ship was preparing to launch a major strike, and many fully fueled and armed aircraft were parked about the deck. At 10:52 AM a 5" ZUNI rocket accidentally fired from a F-4 Phantom parked on the starboard side of the ship and pointed inboard. The rocket impacted an armed A-4 Skyhawk (piloted by then-LCDR, now Senator, John McCain) parked on the port side.
The rocket's impact dislodged and ruptured the Skyhawk's 400-gallon external fuel tank and ignited the jet fuel which poured out. A 1000-pound bomb also fell to the deck, into the spreading pool of flaming jet fuel. Within 90 seconds the bomb "cooked off" and detonated. That explosion resulted in a chain reaction as the closely-packed aircraft were first engulfed in and then contributed to a massive fire with repeated high-order bomb detonations. The ship's "plat" cameras, mounted on the island and embedded in the deck itself, provided ample video coverage of the initial accident and the subsequent catastrophe.
Chief Petty Officer Farrier can be seen in the plat tapes running toward McCain's Skyhawk immediately after the rocket strike. The fuel tank had already ruptured and burning fuel was spreading around the aircraft. Chief Farrier had, as his weapon against this blaze, a hand-held fire extinguisher. He had not yet reached the Skyhawk when the first detonation occurred . . . he simply disappeared in the blast. A number of air- and deck crew were trapped in the inferno; many died there, while others were able to escape to the deck-edge catwalks.
Outside the rapidly spreading fire, the flight deck crew immediately began an effort to contain the blaze. The on-deck firefighting crews rallied after the first explosion and attacked the fire, only to disappear in the second, and larger, round of explosions. The plat tapes show the decimated firefighters recruiting help from anyone in the vicinity, and these make-shift crews once again pressed into the growing inferno. The third round of detonations cleared the deck of men and fire-fighting gear, but within a minute more crewmen from the forward deck and below-deck areas had reconstituted fire-fighting teams and were working their way aft.
Over a dozen 1,000 and 500 pound bombs detonated within the first few minutes of the fire, punching holes through the 3" armor plating of the flight deck. Flaming fuel poured through those holes, into the working and berthing spaces on the O-3 level, then down into the aft hangar bay. Numerous smaller explosions occurred as lesser weapons, ranging from the Skyhawk's cannon ammunition to 5" rocket warheads, detonated.
Although it was 13 hours and more before the last fire was extinguished, FORRESTAL's crew did put it out . . . but at the cost of 134 dead and hundreds more injured. FORRESTAL left Yankee Station under her own power, steaming to Subic Bay for temporary repairs before returning to her home port (Norfolk, Virginia).

Notes for ANNA L:
From Larry Stroud:
(Ann died in a freak accident. She and Robin Richardson were headed to a revival in the Cave City,
Ark., area, 14 miles north of Batesville on U.S. Highway 167, from Batesville with Ann driving when her
cars electrical system just quit. When that happened the cars steering automatically locked and the two women couldn't get the car off the road, it was disabled in the northbound lane and darkness was
coming on. It was twilight, in other words, with darkness coming on fast. Ann grabbed a flashlight and
told Robin to get way off the shoulder out of the way. Then, as always thinking of others, Ann got in the center of the road and was trying to flag oncoming drivers into the other lane so they wouldn't hit her disabled car and get hurt. The driver of either the first or second car to come by (northbound) didn't see her and struck her, knocking her 70 feet through the air and killing her. The car following that one hit Ann's car in the rear, and when it did, all the electrical stuff in it started working again. It was a
real sad thing. But she and I had such a wonderful talk while waiting at Sears; I just felt like God gave
me a special time to visit with her, with no pressure, for neither of us were going anywhere until we waited through that long line to pick up the Christmas gifts for our families. We had about 25 minutes to visit before we got up to the counter. Within 10 days, she was no longer with us. Quite a lady. Never remarried after Gerald's death, just went about her business raising their children.
A couple of their children -- Steve and David, I think -- still live in Batesville. Last I heard,
Teresa was in Memphis. Not sure of her married name at this time.
