The children of Ephraim Pharr and Jane Smith were know to be
1. Elizabeth Houlton 2.3.11 born between 1785-1790 who married William Patrick. I have not date of death on her but William died 18 June 1833. The book Pharrs and Farrs said there were no children but could be wrong.
2.Mary Polly 2.3.10 b. 3 De. 1786 d. bet. 1850 and 1860 married James Bellah.
3. Margaret 2.3.10 b. 24 June 1792 d. 26 July 1846 married Mary Elizabeth Matthews.
4. Jemima b. abt 1797
I would guess all were born in Oglethorpe C.
