Elyria Evening Telegram
February 22, 1917

Today and Yesterday They had a great time over in Carlisle last Sunday. It was the centennial of the Holford-Farr families corning to the Western Reserve. You may be sure the old fellows who could remember “way back in ‘43 when the town pump froze” got busy with their tongues and told the awfullest whoppers—but, on the other hand—in that assemblage were silver haired women, who were belles when Grant was shelling Vicksburg.

The Farr family does not envy the llowards, the Montagues or the Van Alai1s. For Thomas Farr--almost a May flowerer—settled at Stow, Mass., in 1638, and Lowel Farr, eight generations !ater, left Chesterfield, Mass,, and came to Elyria in 1820. And the Farrs haven’t got rnuch on the Holfords, for C. B. Holford, another near May flowerer, left Ovid, N. Y. and after a rough trip, settled in Carlisle, February 14, 1817. Alter many moons, Lowell Farr married Phoebc Holford, and today there are 120 descendants, 70 of whom made the rafters ring last Sunday. They are all staunch Americans, and though blood is thicker than water, these old folks whose memories go back to the Civil War and beyond, are preserving a neutrality creditable to a Holland diplomat. The more Farrs and Holfords this country has the longer will she last.

Shubell FARR - The subject of this sketch was born in Chesterfield, New Hampshire, on the 4th day of March, 1805. He is the oldest child of Alpheus and Sybil Farr, who reared a family of twelve children. All the education Mr. Farr received was in the public schools of Massachusetts. His vocation through life has always been that of a farmer. He was married at the age of twenty-seven to Miss Ludinda McKillips, daughter of David and Resine McKillips. He removed from his native State with his family to Orange County, Vermont, where he resided for a number of years, removing from there to Indiana, where he lived until the month of June, 1838, when he emigrated to Rock County, Wisconsin, where he located on one hundred and sixty acres of government land, and has since resided. The farm is under a fair state of cultivation, with good buildings. The house is said to be the first frame building in Johnstown Township, if not the oldest in the County. Mr. Farr has paid considerable attention to the growing and marketing of fine stock. Politically, he is a strong advocate of the old Democratic principles, and during the civil war was a strong Union man. Being one of the early settlers of the County, he participated in the first organization of the township of Johnstown.

As there is no record of an Edith Farr in Waterford who was born 1800/1810, I believe that the census enumerator put the 'tick mark' in the wrong column and that she was actually about the same age as her husband, NOT a decade older. AE 20-29 => b.btwn 1810/1820; i.e. b.ca. 1814.
