Re: Fahrney Family Site

In Reply to: Re: Fahrney Family Site by Joan Fahrney of 59

Hi Joan,
Yes, your bottle is from Dr. Daniel Fahrney's formulas, sold by various companies in Hagerstown. Daniel, also descended from Peter Farnie, set up a rival business to his cousin Dr. Peter Fahrney in Chicago (see response to Kerry). Evidently this was a common practice for many generations in the Farnie/Fahrney/Fornie/Forney/etc. family: medical practice combined with pharmaceutical business. Unfortunately, Daniel never achieved the level of success of his millionaire cousin Peter. The bottles are pictured in a bottle collector's website. E-mail me and I'll forward the address.
Chuck
