Moved to Cape Vincent in 1867

CENSUS (Extracted from ancestry.com scans): Oct. 15, 1850. Ellisburgh, Jefferson Co., New York. Page 341R stamped. Lines 5-7. Dwelling 1903, Family 1920. Jeremiah Farr, 31M, Carpenter & J. (probably stands for 'joiner”), Real Estate valued at 1000, no birth place shown; Harriet S., 30F, no birth place shown; Greenleaf, 3M, no birth place shown. No birth places are given anywhere on this page unless they are not New York, which I take to imply that all blank birth places are New York. Uri Farr and family also appear on this page.

June 18, 1870. Town of Cape Vincent, Jefferson Co., NY. Post Office of Millens Bay. Page 35 (185 stamped). Lines 25-28. Dwelling 265, Family 264. Farr, John, 62M, Farmer, Real Estate valued at 5650, other property valued at 1880, b. New York; Harriet, 52F, keeps house, b. New York; C., 23M (or 28M), at home, b. New York; James, 1 8M, at home, b. New York; Harron, Georgian, 76F (could be 16F), HouseKeeper, b. New York. Despite the many variances in names from the 1850 census, and despite the ten-year difference in Jeremiah/John's age, I believe this census applies to the family of Jeremiah and Harriet Farr. It is indeed remarkable how, wherever I look, the 1870 census is always problematic in some regard or another!

The following family group descriptions are adapted from Hamilton Child's “Gazetteer of Jefferson County, N.Y.”, published in 1890.
http ://www.rootsweb.com/~nyjeffer/childcap.htm
Jeremiah Farr, son of Aaron, was a native of Vermont, and died in the town of El!isburg at the age of 50 yeas. He married Katie Belden of Painted Post, N.Y., by whom he had children as follows: John B., Charles A., Edward R., Alzina, Zimri, Uri, and Jeremiah. The latter was born in Ellisburgh, whence he removed to Cape Vincent in 1867. He married Harriet S., daughter of Ira and Hannah (Benton) North, of Redfield, N.Y., and their children are Green leaf and Ira. The latter married Carrie daughter of Martin and Catharine Hay, of Cape Vincent.

From Steve Cota July 2005
“I got word back from the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) today regarding my requests for Jeremiah Far Sr.'s War of 1812 pension file, and Jeremiah Farr Jr.'s Civil War pension file: Neither could be found. In the case of Jeremiah Farr Jr., I suspected he might not be a Civil War veteran at all, because I could not find his name on the National Park Service's website tabulating Civil War veterans. So NARA's inability to find him probably means he did not really serve in the Civil War.”
