Thanks for responding so quickly. I have also had a response from the James S. Farrior, III, who has posted a response to "Jim" in GenForum RE: Farriors of Barbour County, AL. He mentioned the book by Leslie H. Brown, Jr., Genealogy of the Farrior Family, 1948. He also said that the Family Tree Maker site had a Farrior family tree based largely on that book. You might look into that.
I have a copy of that book (I think) which I typed in the 1970's for my mother, myself, and some other family members. We came into our copy in a very serendipitous way: My first cousin Robert Lee Farrior (who lives in San Diego and whom I've only recently visited with for the third time in our lives!) was in the St. Louis airport and was paged to come to an airline desk. When he arrived, he found another Robert Farrior answering the page and got a copy of the family history from him subsequently. He sent it to my aunt in Los Angeles, who sent a copy to my mother, who then came to visit me and got me to retype the whole thing with several carbon copies!
The history begins with a summary of several pages. I'll be happy to send you a copy of this summary if you will e-mail me your address.
My Farrior line is James (the original French Huguenot, whose name was spelled Farrier (the correct French way), John, William, John, Thomas Jefferson Farrior (my father), Mamie Charlsie Farrior Teal, my mother. I believe this is correct. If you will look at the postings between James S. Farrior, III, and myself, you can see that we seem to have the same great grandfather. My grandfather left home when he was fifteen or so, went to Texas, joined the Rough Riders, and eventually came to Birmingham around 1908. In addition to my mother, he had three sons, Thomas W., James L., Robert L. (father of the Robert mentioned above), and another daughter, Martha Lorinda. My mother and her sister Lorinda are now in their eighties and can fill in on their own father's siblings.
I hope all of this helps you out somewhat. Luckily, the work has been done up to 1948 by Leslie Brown, whose mother was a Farrior, I believe. I hope you can get this book or other information that you need.
Let me hear from you and I'll be happy to send you the summary of the family history. It's a pleasure to hear from another "cousin" out there.
