From the research of Linda Farr Welch:

William Farr inherited his father's property in Stow and lived there until his marriage. He was a school teacher at Littleton, Massachusetts, teaching in the southern part of Acton, Massachusetts, as well, from 1751-2. When the 1790 census was taken, we find that "Dr. Farr" was living in Westford with one female in the household. It was probably his daughter Mary who lived with him throughout her life. His sons were all spread out. Nathaniel had left New Ipswich when his brother died, and was in New Bedford in 1790; Levi had died in New Ipswich, NH in 1788, Francis was living in Harvard, Mass. in 1790; and William Farr Jr. was a resident of Ashby, at that time. Dr.  Farr must have been totally proud of his sons, who were all soldiers of the American Revolution.

Other marriages:
DECOST, Abigail

From the research of Linda Farr Welch:

"Nathaniel Farr and Abigail his wife and Abigail and Martha their children, warned out of Westford, Mass., 5 March, 1770."  They removed to New Ipswich, NH, from Westford ca. 1770, and settled alongside his brother, Levi, where Nathaniel entered Revolutionary Service.  (What was Nathaniel doing in New Bedford, Mass (that part of Dartmouth that became New Bedford) in 1790?

Around the end of March, 1799, the family removed to Chester, Vermont. Nathaniel, like so many soldiers before him who had marched on the Crown Point Military road during the Revolution, was impressed with the scenery and potential of Vermont. He determined that after the war was over, he would move his family and settle them in the Black River Valley.

They came with one ox team consisting of one yoke of oxen and a large sled, and a two yoke sled of steers with a milch cow with a sled tied up and hooked to her back. All the household possessions had been loaded in the cart, consisting of beds and bedding, cooking utensils, and other necessities.  They arrived at Townshend, Massachusetts, spent the night there, and then proceeded on to Rindge, NH. They traveled from Rindge northward on an old stagecoach path which was still hard covered with snow and almost impassable.  It was very rough going, but the family was in need of getting to their destination soon in order to start building their home and beginning the planting season.  The younger children and Abigail stayed with friends in Chester, while Nathaniel went on to the town of  Cavendish to his land.  He had purchased  from William Chaplin of Cavendish, 50 acres of land, being the SW corner of John Webster's Right #73, on 26 Dec., 1799.  The land was described as "beginning at a large beach tree, it being the southwest corner of land laid out on John Webster's Right No. 73; thence south, 80 degrees east, 100 rods to a stake and stones; thence north 8 degrees east, 80 rods to a stake & stones; thence north 80 degrees west, 100 rods to a stake and stones; thence south, 8 degrees west, 80 rods to the bounds first mentioned."    The deed was witnessed by Salmon Dutton and Asa Wheeler.

Nathaniel removed his family to Cavendish from Chester around 1801.  It is believe he first  built his log home on land, off the Twenty-Mile Stream Road near the old Timothy Adams Farm. This place was historically  the home of grist-mill owner and operator, Moses Smith, an early settler and Revolutionary soldier who had lost one of his limbs in the war.   Later Robert Upton who had married Anna Wheelock lived here and operated the mill but left later for the state of Maine.

Nathaniel Farr lived close to Capt. John Coffeen and must have been present at that gentlemen's funeral.   He was a well-liked citizen of the town, and it is said that he often told many colorful stories of the Revolution and the early days in Cavendish.  He applied for a survivor's pension on 8 Aug., 1832 in order to receive benefit of the Act of Congress of June 7, 1832.  He was granted a pension on 22 Aug., 1833 of $32.31 a year.  Why he did not apply for a pension before that date, we can't be certain.  He could have applied as early as 1818.

He died at Proctorsville on 22 July, 1840 (age 95 years). "May the warrior whose spirit has fled, Reach the mansions prepared for the blest, For his country he suffered and bled, Heaven's Angels conduct him to rest."

Nathaniel is buried in the Farr Family Plot, in back of the Farr homestead in Proctorsville.  Abigail died  before him, ca. 1810, and is buried in the plot.  (There are some 13 graves there with fieldstone markers).

In respect to the 3rd enlistment the declarant cannot tell the Colonel's name, but thinks the General's name who commanded at Ticonderoga was Schuyler.

As respects the 4th campaign of three days, the declarant can recollect nothing further being more infirm and imperfect as to memory than when he testified to his first declaration the services in the war appearing in many respects "like a dream".
