RUSSELL, Abigail

From the research of Linda Farr Welch:

William Farr inherited his father's property in Stow and lived there until his marriage. He was a school teacher at Littleton, Massachusetts, teaching in the southern part of Acton, Massachusetts, as well, from 1751-2. When the 1790 census was taken, we find that "Dr. Farr" was living in Westford with one female in the household. It was probably his daughter Mary who lived with him throughout her life. His sons were all spread out. Nathaniel had left New Ipswich when his brother died, and was in New Bedford in 1790; Levi had died in New Ipswich, NH in 1788, Francis was living in Harvard, Mass. in 1790; and William Farr Jr. was a resident of Ashby, at that time. Dr.  Farr must have been totally proud of his sons, who were all soldiers of the American Revolution.

Jemimah FARR [Parents] [scrapbook]-6067 was born 1, 2, 3 on 29 Nov 1713 in Stow, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States. She died 4 on 18 Nov 1739 in Stow, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States. Jemimah married (MRIN:2657) Dr. William FARR (twin)-8427 before 18 Nov 1739 in of Stow, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States.

Jemimah was also known as Jemina.

Her headstone states that she is the wife of William Farr.

DEATH: "w. William, Age 25 y., 11 m., 18 d."


Joseph FARR [Parents] 1-6068 was born 2, 3, 4 on 11 Apr 1718 in Stow, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States. He died 5 on 24 Feb 1796 in Cummington, Hampshire, Massachusetts, United States. Joseph married (MRIN:2658) Dinah POWERS-7309 about 1739 in of Acton, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States.

The following email appears to connect here.

Dear Tim Farr. My name is Charles Logan Mckinney of Neoga Illinois. My mother who passed away in 1988 was Inez (Farr) McKinney. Her line is. George Eddie Farr, William Logan Farr, James L Farr, James Farr, Benjamin Farr, Joseph Farr, Stephen Farr, Stephen, Farr etc.  Before she passed we had only been able to go back to Benjamin Farr, but thanks to you and the internet we are now able to go way back. I just wish my mother and others could have seen this. My great grandfather William Logan Farr was a civil war vet and I have some history on him. Any way thank you so much for all your research.

Charles Logan Mckinney


The following is from The Ancestors and Descendants of Julius E. Farr by Milton Farr Kilroy:

Joseph Farr and his older brother, Stephen Farr III, lived for many years in the Acton area, but around 1770, they moved to Cummington, Hampshire County, Massachusetts, a new settlement on the western frontier. This was a time of migration from the eastern Massachusetts towns into the newly opened Berkshire Hills area. In 1762, John Cummings, Esq. of Concord was the leader of a group of men who purchased from the Massachusetts Bay Company, a township in Hampshire County called Plantation No. 5. Later the town was to accept the name of Cummington from its original owner.

There is no clearer way of showing the early settlement of this town than by quoting from the proceedings of the Proprietors, as they are preserved by the town clerk. Cummington was not settled as many other towns of that time by people going into the forest and building their cabins alone in the wilderness. In Cummington, organization was before settlment. On 2 June 1762, a meeting of the Proprietors was held at Concord, and it was voted that Charles Prescott, Esq. be the moderator of said Propriety. A clerk, treasurer and an assessor were selected, as well as a committee to call future meetings. The group voted that the minister's lot and the school lot in the first division of lots be laid where the committee for laying out the lots would think most convenient, and were not to be drawn by the Proprietors.'

At this first meeting, the committee laid out sixty-three 100 acre lots, 160 rods in length and 102 rods in width. The contents in each lot were 102 acres, the two acres in each lot being laid in order to make roads as would be thought proper.

The first drawing of lots was on 19 December 1762, but it was not until the second drawing took place on 26 September 1764 that we find the name of Stephen Farr; he drew lot Number 28. The following year, in May 1765, his brother, Joseph, was voted to be a Proprietor. Records of deeds show that Joseph Farr came to Cummington in 1770, followed by Stephen in 1771. This was a courageous move for Joseph with his large family of nine children!

Joseph Farr was an innholder in 1771, being most probably the first landlord in the town. His tavern was in the southwest part of town, possibly the first inn, and undoubtedly the first house in the town. It was situated on an old route from Northampton to Berkshire County, winding into the town for only a mile or two.

Joseph Farr was very active in the affairs of the town, and there are many mentions of him in the old town records. Listed below are some of the items, but it might be well to consider that a few of them might refer to his son, Joseph, who also lived there for many years.

1771 The Town Proprietors met at the home of Joseph Farr.
1774 Joseph Farr allowed costs.
1776 Joseph Farr's road mentioned.
1779 Joseph Farr was one of the original members of the Cummington Congregational Church, which church records begin in 1779.
1784 Joseph Farr's account allowed. His name mentioned on a tax list.
1785 Joseph Farr of Cummington, MA, County of Hampshire, yeoman, sells to Jasile Farr 60 acres of land. The deed was signed by Joseph Farr and Dinah Farr.
Joseph Farr chosen Constable to collect Jasile Farr's Tax bills which are uncollected.
Joseph Farr excused from one half fine for refusing to serve as Constable. [The writer wonders if there is an interesting story behind these last two items!]

In the town records of Cummington, there are two different dates for the death of Joseph Farr, a year apart on 24 February 1796 and 27 February 1797. Most researchers agree that this is probably a mistake in transcribing the records, because the younger Joseph moved to Manlius Village in New York and died there, Since the inventory of Joseph Farr's estate is dated 3 May 1796, it seems quite clear that the 1796 date is the correct one.

Joseph Farr died intestate, and the inventory of his estate is interesting in that it gives an overview of the life style of that time period. The possessions seem to indicate a fairly affluent way of life, and there appears to have been close family ties as his son Jacob signed the paper which appointed his grandson, Anselm, as Administrator of the estate. His personal estate, after the bills were paid, amounted to $572.75. His widow received $190.91, and the remaining amount was divided among his nine children.

Joseph Farr's widow, Dinah Powers Farr, continued to live in Cummington, Massachusetts, where she died 1 June 1802.
