Group Description

Congratulations, you have found the Yahoo! Group page for the study of the family line of Louis Horton Farmer. Since you have reached this page you are no doubt related in some way or another to the family of Louis and Elizabeth Farmer.

Known to most of us as grandma and grandpa Farmer, Louis and Elizabeth had six kids and 30 some grandchildren.

But unknown to most of us, Grandpa (and the rest of us by extension) had a colorful and historically interesting ancestral lineage filled with lords and knights, castles and earls, Revolutionary War vets, a Confederate solder, a frontier Baptist pastors, slave holders, and tobacco producers. One of grandpa’s Farmer forefathers defended the early Jamestown settlement against an Indian massacre and another of grandpa's forefathers was kidnapped at age 14 and brought to Virginia to be sold as an indentured servant but when his time of servitude was up married the daughter of his master and inherited his plantation. One married his cousin's daughter, another, as a widower married his son's wife's widowed mother and Thomas, the first of the Farmers of our line to come to America married the daughter of the ship captain who brought him to the new world.

Grandpa's family can be traced back to living in the states of Kansas, Iowa, Kentucky, and Virginia; and to the counties of England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, and Normandy, France. (and in at least 2 castles, photos of which are posted.)

As time permits I will be posting notes, observation and stories on the Files page.
I am looking forward to sharing with you the various gems I have uncovered and would like to encourage you to join in the fun.

Feel free to post photos, news, and stories about our extended family.

Your son/brother/nephew/cousin/grand nephew/ect.
