Joel FARR [Parents] was born about 1791. Joel married 1 Phoebe RAY on 8 Oct 1813 in Townshend, Windham, Vermont, United States.

From Vanessa Herring:
Joel appears to be the oldest son of Thomas and Elizabeth. From father Thomas Farr's estate, Joel received 15 1/3 acres of land and part of the house and barn, while his brothers received 8 1/2 acres each and no part of the house or barn. Going by the 1800 census, he was born sometime between 1785 and 1790. One of his brothers lived with him in 1820.
Joel Farr married Phebe Ray of Townshend VT on 8 Oct 1813 in Acton VT. They do not appear to have had any children together.
Joel mortgaged his home 4 times between 1828 and 1835. One mortgage was from his brother Samuel, then living in Easton NY. Though Joel is not present on the 1840 census in Acton, he is included on the tax list for that year. It is possible that he died in this year.
Thomas Farr may be the second son, born between 1791 and 1800. He stayed in Acton while Samuel left about 1825. Thomas appears to have married because the birth of a son Thomas is recorded in Acton town records on 20 Jul 1826. Additionally, the 1830 census shows that he also had two daughters, one aged 0-4 years, the other 5 to 9 years of age. I have found no marriage record for Thomas. Early vital records in Johnson's Gore/Acton are sparse.
Thomas is no longer in Acton in 1840. He sold everything he owned--  real estate, livestock, farming and carpentry tools, and even crops (except 10 bushels of potatoes) to Israel Streeter on 12 Dec 1831. This may indicate that he was near death, but he was only in his early 40's at worst, so perhaps he moved on to New York, like his brother Samuel.
Neither man or their family members are found in the Acton Cemetery. There also appear to be no probate records for either man.
