FERNER – FARNER – FURNER Families Genealogy Booklet

I have a booklet “Sketches and Register of Ferner, Farner and Furner Families”, dated April 3, 1941, compiled by O. A. Ferner of Alliance, Ohio. This 30 page document contains data from the research begun by Roy Y. Ferner who sought information on the families of Somerset Co., Pennsylvania. After Roy’s death in 1934, O. A. Ferner was able to expand on the data by acquiring information from many contributors via correspondence. The author claims some 3,500 names are in the register, most of whom can trace their ancestry to the Ferners and Farners of Somerset County. The record is divided into four parts: I. Daniel of the Revolution; II. John of Forbes Road; III. Jacob and John of Fairhope; and IV. Farners and Furners outside Somerset. This last section includes four groups: (1) Furners of West Virginia, (2) Farners of Franklin Co., PA, (3) Farners (originally Furners) from Juanita Co., PA, and (4) Furners of western New York. The booklet contains descendants from the four major divisions, along with a few biographical sketches and photos.

If anyone would like to have a copy of this document, please contact me at The material is not copyrighted, so there is no issue with duplication. I can either e-mail you a scanned version in .pdf file format, or I can provide a hard copy for the cost of mailing. Please don’t request a look-up. The booklet is not indexed, and I really don’t have the time to do name searches. Thank you for your consideration.

Hope this may help someone with their research! Dave
