Pharr Family Genealogy Forum
Do you know if Jane Smith Pharr remarried? Records show that Michael Powers married Jane Tobair Aug/18/1803 in Oglethorpe Co., GA. The name TOBAIR could be a miswriting of PHARR. I am researching Michael Powers. I have always wondered why the connection between Michael Powers and an this mysterious Elizabeth Holton Pharr. See the following:
1806 Michael Powers Oglethorpe Co., GA “for and in consideration of the love and good will and affection which I have and do bear towards Elizabeth Holton Pharr of the county and state aforesaid and have given and granted and by those present do freely give and grant unto the said Elizabeth Holton Pharr her heirs, executors, or administrators on Negro female child name China about two and one half years old being in my present dwelling house in the county and state foresaid which before the signing of these present I have delivered the said negro child unto the said Elizabeth Holton Pharr to have and to hold the aforesaid Negro child at the aforesaid dwelling house to her the said Elizabeth Holton Pharr her heirs and executors or administrators from henceforth or her and their proper right absolutely without any manner of consideration in witness where of I have hence to put my hand and seal this 28th day of October in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and eight.” Signed Michael Powers Witnessed - Margaret Pharr Oglethorpe County, Georgia Book E page 405
