My mother was born Mamie Charlsie Farrior, second child of Thomas Jefferson Farrior (James, John, William, James, John.) This latter John Farrior, who married Martha McCullough, was, I believe, my great grandfather, father of Thomas Jefferson Farrior. My grandfather Thomas was born in central Alabama on the family plantation. There is some question about his birth year, as he joined the Army and fought under Teddy Roosevelt in Cuba, having volunteered and pretended to be over 18. If my genealogy is correct, we are some kind of cousins! My grandfather Thomas Farrior's third child was also named James (Lovett) Farrior, whose son and grandson are also James Farrior II and III! How about that for repeating the name through the years!
I'd like to hear from you all. I have a typed family history which ends in 1948, and would like to update it. My mother is 87 and can fill some information.
Was your grandfather the one who sold the family land and toured the world? My mother refers to him as "Uncle Bud," but I believe this uncle's name was James.
