RECENT CHANGES AND ADDITIONS:

The Spring 2017 Newsletter is now available on the Newsletter page at this link: (click here).  The newsletter is important for a few reasons: 
the upcoming 40th reunion at our reunion grounds in Arkansas and a memorial to an Original 10 sister and an Original 10 wife that
we lost during the last few months.  Please take a look and plan on attending the reunion if you can.

Looking forward to our 40th annual reunion coming up in June of 2017 at the Farrar Reunion Campgrounds in Arkansas!  The reunion
starts on Fathers Day, June 18th.  This will be our 40th REUNION, an amazing accomplishment for a great family, we hope to see you there.

We lost our Aunt Nelda on Feb 19th, she passed away peacefully after a long illness.  Our thoughts and prayers are with our Uncle Tom.

AUNT JEAN:   Just a few days before the October Newsletter was published our beloved Aunt Jean (Jean Farrar Hite) passed away.  For 35 years she had joyfully made a yearly trip from Texas to Arkansas to be able to attend our family reunions.  For the past year or so she had enjoyed her new home in Hardy, Arkansas
especially participating in the Hardy Senior Citizen Center.  She recently donated one of her beautiful quilts to the Center to be raffled off with all donations
to the Senior Center to help in their mission.  If you would like a chance to win this quilt you can make a donation.  It is $5.00 per entry.  In lieu of flowers
you can also make a monetary donation, amount of your choice, to the Center:  Hardy Senior Citizen Center, 304 Johnson Lane, Hardy, AR  72542.  870-856-2175.
We will all miss our Aunt Jean very much.





ITEMS OF INTEREST

The two Farrar books by Alvahn Holmes are again available.  Click on the book order page to see the latest information.



Joseph V. Farrar, Jr. passed away at his home in Riverside County, California on December 28th, 2010. 
Joseph, the oldest son of Joseph V. Farrar, Sr. and Viola (Schwend) Farrar, assumed the duties of family Patriarch
when Joseph, Sr.  passed away in 1983.  Joseph, Jr. was a tireless promoter of the Farrar Family Reunion.
He supported and attended all of the 30+ reunions and organized two 'Rendezvous' at Farrar's Island in Virginia,
one in 1997 and one that was impacted by events of 911 in September of 2001. (read more about these two events at THIS LINK).
You can visit Joseph's memorial page and sign the guest book by clicking on THIS LINK, and read the newsletter article on page
three of the April, 2011 Farrar Family Newsletter at THIS LINK.


We have added the Holmes books to eBay and Paypal, and, you can use a credit card to purchase without a Paypal
account.  And, we still offer the option of sending a check or money order and you will receive a discount off the price
if you choose this method.  See the book order page: (click here) for more details.

We visited ancestors buried in the Old Flatcreek Cemetery located in Flatcreek Tennessee.  The  cemetery isn’t maintained and it is very overgrown (not something we can understand given the fact so many Farrar’s with ancestors in this cemetery reside in the area).  Additional information will be posted and the link page expanded as time permits.  You can view the information at this link.


Directions to Farrar's Island:  You can locate directions to Farrar's Island on the web page of the City of Henricus Historical Park web page.  Once there, click on 'directions' under the title and following the instructions.     I have also placed a Mapquest map of Farrar's Island here which you can adjust and print for reference.  You will need to zoom in to see the island, now Henricus Historical Park (
Latitude: 37.375,  Longitude: -77.370).

Information about the Farrar family coat of arms at the link indicated.  The information comes from Holmes first book (more information on Holmes book offer page).  The information includes a description of the colors of the coat of arms and there also is a translation of that description..
