Jonathan FARR 1st [Parents] [scrapbook]-6054 was born 1, 2, 3 on 24 Feb 1722/1723 in Stow, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States. He died after 7 Jan 1766. Jonathan married (MRIN:2646) Rachel-6056 about 1742 in of Stow, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States.

Jonathan owned 4 land which he sold to Charles Whitney on 7 Jan 1766 in Stow, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States.

Mentioned in father's will and mentions in a land deed that he is the brother of Abraham Farr son of Samuel Farr. His wife Rachel signed the deed also.

From Vanessa Herring:
Mr. Farr,

I've been doing an analysis of the land records for the 4 Jonathan Farrs of Chesterfield, to see if I can approximate the death year of Jonathan 1st. Here's what I've found:

First, we know that Jonathan Farr first was alive at the 1790 census, as were 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.

Jonathan 1st moved from Lot 5 11th Range, likely to be close to his sons in his old age. He purchased from Samuel Davis part of Lots 13 and 14 in the 14th Range on 5 Apr 1781. (He sold his Lot 5 11th Range land to Jonas Davis in 1785.)

Jonathan 2nd died about 25 Feb 1791.

Jonathan 3rd moved to Dummerston VT a little after his purchase of land there on 8 Mar 1791.

In administering Jonathan 2nd's estate in 1792, Jonathan 4th calls himself Jonathan 3rd, now 2nd in court papers. (The judge seems to ignore this, and always calls him Jonathan 3rd.)  This would seem to indicate that the original Jonathan 3rd is no longer counted, since he has removed to Dummerston VT.

Likewise, Jonathan 4th does not take into account Jonathan 3rd, who is still living, but located in Dummerston VT by 1792. Selling estate land on 5 Dec 1793, he calls himself "Jonathan Farr 2nd, administrator of Jonathan Farr 2nd".

This would seem to indicate that Jonathan 1st is still living in 1793.

Jonathan 4th last called himself Jonathan 2nd in a deed on 8 Jan 1794. He first calls himself only Jonathan on a deed of 24 Apr 1794. It would appear that Jonathan 1st probably died during this time period.

By 1802, Jonathan 4th calls himself Esqr in his land transactions, and after his death in 1807 is referred to as Major Jonathan Farr by the administrator of his estate, John Kneeland.

Land transactions by John Kneeland reveal that Jonathan 4th's wife's name was Mary.

Rachel [scrapbook]-6056 was born on 24 Feb 1721/1722 in of Stow, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States. She died after 7 Jan 1766. Rachel married (MRIN:2646) Jonathan FARR 1st-6054 about 1742 in of Stow, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States.

Rachel owned 1 and signed a deed conveying land to Charles Whitney on 7 Jan 1766 in Stow, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States.

From Vanessa Herring:
It seems very common in genealogies of this family that wife Rachel is shown as dying on 21 Apr 1753, the same day that her daughter Rachel was born. Daughter Rachel is said to have died on the same day that she was born. However, the records of Stow MA do not list either of these deaths, although the book includes family-held records, church records and cemetery records, along with town records. I have now found hard evidence that the mother Rachel did not die in 1753.

On 7 Jan 1766, Jonathan Farr Jr of Stow MA sold land in Stow MA to Charles Whitney of Chesterfield NH for 150 pounds. In the land description, it is mentioned that Jonathan had bought the land on 22 Jan 1762  "of my brother Abraham, conveyed to Abraham by the last will and testament of Samuel Farr late of Stow." Both Jonathan, and his wife, Rachel signed this deed (Rachel with an "X"). So, Rachel did not die in 1753, but was alive at least until 1766.

This same Charles Whitney (wife Rebecca) of Chesterfield had sold land in Chesterfield NH to Jonathan Farr Jr of Stow MA on 7 Jan 1765. (These two transactions may have actually occurred on the same day of the same year.) Charles does not describe the land sold, but simply calls it "my whole right in the township of Chesterfield...Being the original right of Ebenezer Day...except the House Lot drawn on said right which I have heretofore sold to David Pierce". It is probable that this Charles Whitney is the son of Joshua Whitney (son of Richard Whitney and Elizabeth Sawtell, and brother of Hannah Whitney Farr), who married Rebecca Wood of Acton 14 Jul 1752, and whose sister Sarah married David Pierce after the death of her first husband Simon Maynard.

They had the following children.

David married 5, 6 (MRIN:2647) Mary POWERS-6058 on 31 Oct 1767 in Chesterfield, Cheshire, New Hampshire, United States.

Shows on FHL film #2208488, Item 1, p 237 as Constable in 1772 in Chesterfield.
