Over Three Quarters
Of A Century Ago

Days when life in Lorain County moved at a much slower pace than today are recalled by Lauren A. Farr 84, latest addition to The Chronicle Telegram's list of elderly fathers who will be honored by their children Sunday.

Farr was born January 2 1853, and was only seven years old when his father died. Ieaving his wife and five children. The boy attended the country school until he was 12 years old.

At the age of 10 he could follow a plow all day and could do alrnost anything with a team on a farm. When he was 16 he hired out to work on the farm of his brother, Lowell Farr, at Wakeman for 20 dollars a month. Part of his work was in connection with hauling milk to a cheese factory. He did not get home until about 11 P.M. and then was cafled at 3:3O A.M. to bring up the cows. He milked 10 cows night and morning and cared for 20 horses.

He continued at this work for seven months and then was hired by a Carlisle man to pack apples. husk corn and help with the milking. Later he worked with his brother Ephraim cutting wood for Mr. Fullen near LaPonte.

Farr then went to work on his mothers farm on Oberlin Road. He recalls a New Year's dance given by his brother when he was 19, to which he took a load of people on a sleigh. They did not leave until 5 A.M. and he returned home at 8 A.M. He was ill the next day, and Dr. Paxrey was called. The doctor diagnosed his trouble as "lung fever". and the patient was improving when the doctor became ill and died within a few days.

With no doctor for the next five days, the young man's condition became worse, and Dr. Reefy was called. He found that the patient had pneumonia. His face was paralyzed so that he could not close his eyes or move his lips. The left side later returned to normal but the right side never fully came back.

Farr was married March 21, 1877. to Miss Hermena Drusinda and they had five children. of whom only two are now living. They are H. L. Farr. of Bellevue, and Mrs. Ruby Rayner of North Olmsted. The other children, were Edna. Earl and Hulda.
