Ancestors of Tim Farr and The Descendants of Stephen Farr


John Andrew BISTLINE 1 was born 2 on 5 Mar 1896 in Waterloo, Black Hawk, Iowa, United States. He died 3 on 16 Apr 1949 in Short Creek, Washington, Utah, United States. He was buried on 20 Apr 1949 in Logan, Cache, Utah, United States. John married 4 Lula Amanda FARR on 23 Jan 1920 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah, United States.

NOTE  Lula Farr died 16 days after marrying John Bistline.  He later married Jenny Johnson, Lula's first cousin.  Jenny's parents were Sarah Josephine Williams and Franklin Lee Johnson.  Sarah Josephine, "Aunt Josie," was the daughter of Frederick G. Williams and Amanda Burns.  Jenny left the area and moved to Short Creek to join a polygamous cult, and encouraged her husband, John, to go with her.  John did not want to join the cult, but moved near Short Creek so that he could be near the child he and Jenny had produced.  Later, Jenny talked John in to going back to Provo to talk with Heber Farr, Lula's father (and my grandfather) who, as near as we can tell, is the last "legal" polygamist in the Church.  Jenny expected Heber to tell John to go ahead and do the polygamist thing, but Heber told him to have no
part of it because the sanction of polygamy was gone from the Church.
