As far as I know, the Farvers were originally the Farvres (Farv-RAY) of France. They came to Quebec sometime possibly in the 1600's. I heard something about them being criminals and being sent to Quebec by the French government. The Farvers eventually immigrated through Jamestown and New York. They were in the cherry creek massacres. They finally moved to Pennsylvania in the 1800's. There were several (3?) sons. Two moved to Ohio and one stayed in Pennsylvania. So as far as I know, there are three branches of Farvers.

I would love to know where to find information and/or census records on this family.
