The following is from "The Family of Willis Vernon Farr" by Jayne E. Bickford:

Joseph Farr, Jr. went to live with his Aunt Levina Gray when he was eight years old in Coventry, Vt. This would have been Levina (Reed) Gray, sister to Joseph Jr's mother.

A letter from Mrs. Alice M. Clifford, RFG#1, No. Craftsbury, Vermont, to Ellen Mary (Farr) Whitney asks for a list of her great grandfather Farr's brothers. This great grandfather was Joseph Farr, Sr. She also wrote that she would like to know about Aunt Olive Rugg, David Rugg and John Rugg and Mary Read. She says that in a letter from her great grandpa he had said they all died in four weeks. Another letter from Ellen Rugg who compiled "The Descendants of John Rugg" to Mrs. Whitney refers to these people (Olive, David and John Rugg and Mary Read), and it would appear that Ellen Whitney had written to Ellen Rugg for information to answer Mrs. Clifford's letter.

Being of a curious nature, your compiler wanted to know who these people were and went to "The Descendants of John Rugg" for the answer, being led to that book by Ellen Rugg's letter. It appears that Elizabeth (Rugg) Reed, mother of Hannah (Reed) Farr and mother-in-law of Joseph Farr (Mrs. Clifford's great grandpa) had a brother John. He and his wife had 12 children. One was Olive, and there was a David and a John. Olive died in 1854, not 1818, but David died 6 September 1818 and John died 25 September 1818. Mary Reed, daughter of Quartus and Susanna (Priest) Reed and granddaughter of Elizabeth (Rugg) Reed died 7 September 1818. This accounts for three of the family having died in 1818. Why Mrs. Clifford called Olive 'Aunt," I do not know.

Cosbi BOWMAN-7950 was born 1 on 2 Jun 1800 in of Albany, Orleans, Vermont, United States. She died 2 on 17 Jan 1840 in Albany, Orleans, Vermont, United States. Cosbi married (MRIN:3318) Joseph FARR Jr.-7497 on 7 Mar 1831 in Vermont, United States.
