We actually have two
branches of the Farris family in our past!
We can trace our Gilbert Harmon Farris back to
his Grandfather, who was also names Gilbert Farris. This Gilbert Farris
married Dicey Farris. We do not know from where Gilbert came from, so
have not been able to find the connection between Dicey and Gilbert, but
perhaps they were cousins. Or perhaps there was no connection. More
research is needed.
We can trace Dicey's family back to Ian Esom
Farris, who hailed from Edinburgh, Scotland. In 2003, I corresponded
with Sandra Mc Intire in Iowa through many emails. The information she
had to tell me was very interesting and seemed to include our Gilbert H.
Farris. She has done extensive research, along with Randall Farris's
genealogy, and keeps track of most of the Farris lineages through her
"Farris Most Wanted List".
