Genevieve, the daughter of John and Isabelle Halnon of Cornwall, VT, was trained as a school teacher and started her teaching career in Middlebury.

The Farr’s rented an apartment on the first floor of a large three family house at 42 Congress Street, conveniently located within walking distance to the clothing store, which was located in the Mansion House on the corner of Main and Federal Street. Leslie and Genevieve’s family grew with the addition of Margaret Mary in 1922 and Genevieve Grace in 1924.
