Kesler family in SC
Posted by: Nancy Bible Date: February 26, 2001 at 17:21:07

I am searching for descendants of Frederick Tarr/Tarrer or Farr of Newberry, SC. He married Susannah Kesler. He is named in her father's will, as follows:

Henry Kesler made a will 22 May 1802, proven 30 June 1802, Newberry Wills C-326. Planter, sticken in years.
Names heirs:
son - Henry Kesler, 75 A
son - David Kesler, 100A
Abraham Kesler, 75 A
son - Paul Kesler, 75 A
dau. - Elizabeth, cow and bed
dau. - Barbara, trunk, cow and bed
Margaret, trunk, cow and bed
son - David, horse
Abraham, horse
3 boys, horse between them
son- Paul, portion equal to otheres that have received their already.
Remainder equally divided among 6 daughters:
Catherine, wife of Chris Sitz
Christina, wife of Christopher Dickert
Susannah Tarr,
Elizabeth
Barbara
Margaret
Executors: Henry Kesler and Fred. Tarr
Signed: Henry Kesler in German Script
Paid by estate: Fred. (X) Tarer, and others

I am looking for the whereabouts of Frederick Farr that was the son of John George Fahr, a German immigrant that was granted land in the Dutch Fork,(the central area) of SC,in the 1700's. I know this is a long shot, but thought that perhaps the name was changed due to the old handwriting....

Thanks for any help that is offered.
Nancy
