Notes on Jonathan
-2.2.9 From the book Pharrs and Farrs was born in Virginia before his father, Edward moved to Meck Co. NC about 1779 following the death of his wife Rachel Beard. Edward and his family was in Wilkes Co. Ga. in March 1784 where he was evidently married. The son 2.3.8 Francis is named in the will of 2.2.38 Francis Pharr (brother of Jonathan) as his legal heir. The other two sons Samuel and David, are named in the "bill of sale" of slaves in Texas Previously mentioned as the sole heir of Jonathan Pharr. He is a Justice of the peace in Elbert County,Ga. in 1797 and held court in that year (see land grant book in Elbert Co. 1791-1822. In 1803 however he was captain of his milita Dist. in Jackson Co. Ga. A Jonathan Pharr is mentined in Herdon's Centenial History of Arkansas, 1932 published by S. J. Clarke publishing of Chicago, as one of the early settlers in about 1817 to 1829 of Pyeatsville, Pulaski Co. Ark. As he seem to have 'a wanderlust" bent he probley moved with other Pharrs to Mississippi where David married Elizabeth Bailey. (See 2.3.40)
Nancy Lewis with pictures.
I believe he is shown on the 1820 census for Concordia Parish, Louisiana.
notes on John Houlton
2.2.10 from the book of Pharrs and Farrs. He inherited from his father "287 acres of land in Greene Co. Ga., one mare called Phenix and a horescolt and bed and furniture" also 200. of money i have, bonds and notes for to be used to defray the cost of my sons John's schooling and what is over is to help my son, Edward, in his learning". The family lived in Oglethorpe Co. Ga. The tax records for 1796 show as follows: Jean (John?) Pharr Oglethorpe Co. Ga. 3 slaves and Ephraim Pharr, agent for John Farr 287 1/2 acres in Greene Co. Ga. There is a John H. Pharr who enlisted from Greene Co. Ga. in the War of 1812 in Captain Burwell Pope's Company, Colonel Jett Thomas' Regement Ga. State Troups, Sept. 12, 1814 and was discharged at Savannah, Ga. 2/21/1815. He was head of a family in Greene Co. Ga. in the U. S. census for 1820. In 1825 he drew one land lot in Hill's Dist. in Oglethorpe Co. Ga. He applied for land bounty at Seale, Russell Co. Ala. 11/12/1850 for 80 acres, 26383, 3/11/1851. Someting wrong here. He died in Aug. 1844 so this has to be his son?
