Jim:

My Farrior line is James (1), John (2), William (3), John (4) James S. I (5), James S. II (6), James S. III (7).

Could it be that the plantation owner who was the father of Annie Burton was not from Liverpool, England, but was from Liverpool, Ala., a small town south of Tuskegee? My mother's family was from Liverpool and the nearby town of La Place.

I was raised in the small town of Letohatchie, Ala., 20 miles south of Montgomery. The majority of the people in the area were black, and some black folks pronounced Farrior as Farrin, and also Farrah, Fair, and Farrer.

Thanks for bringing Annie Burton's book to our attention.

Jim Farrior
