This site contains specific information for the Farrar Family Reunion, Incorporated.

The Farrar Family Reunion, Inc. holds it's annual reunion and is incorporated in the State of Arkansas.

The Reunion Corporation has been created for the benefit of that portion of the Farrar line descended from Joseph Vernon Farrar, Sr. (6/10/1903 - 6/28/1983) and and his wife Viola Lillian Schwend (7/25/1904 - 11/4/1954) and their families, relatives and friends.

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.

 


ITEMS OF INTEREST

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..

The bulletin
board had to be removed, we may figure out a way to provide this service in the future. In the meantime, you can  find a lot of interesting information and post your questions on the Farrar Family Forum.

PLEASE NOTE, DUE TO THE CURRENT 'SPAM' PROBLEMS, IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE A REPLY FROM YOUR EMAIL MESSAGE, YOUR MESSAGE MAY NOT HAVE BEEN FORWARDED TO ME.  IF YOUR MESSAGE DOES NOT GET THROUGH THE VARIOUS SPAM FILTERS, PLEASE CALL INSTEAD.  THANK YOU!!
