I think he had more children. I'm pretty sure they were not from Mary Mathews. There seems to be at least two more sons. Note Mary was 29 when they were marrried so it's possible they were hers. The two men were born before Ephrium and Mary were married. The names I find are John B. Pharr and a William Walter Pharr .

I'm now questioning who the two Pharr men were. They were at least cousins.

Edward Sr. daughter Margery 2.2.2 Pharr mar. Joseph Wallace abt 1771. My guess near Mecklenburg C. NC. Joseph d. aft. 19 Feb. 1781 in Mecklenburg C. Margery is said to have died 1798. There children are listed as Edward, Samuel, Elizabeth, William and Ann. Edward and William are said to have moved to Autauga C. Ala.
I can give a little more on these two Wallace men if you would like it.
If you would like to email me it's redroad9@aim.com. My name is David Pharr and if you would like a copy of the book Pharrs and Farrs on CD it's about $6.00. Cecil Pharr has them and I can give you his email address.
