I found a transcription of David Farmer's will in the book "A History of Halifax County Virginia", by Wirt Johnson Carrington, Regional Publishing Company, Baltimore, 1969. This book was found at the St. Louis County Genealogical Library, F232.H17C3 1969.
Will of David Farmer, Halifax County, Virginia, Will Book 15, page 482, 16 Dec 1825. "My wife, Jane Farmer; son, Obediah; grandson, Henry Farmer; granddaughter, Polly Farmer. Balance of my estate divided between Hannah East, Ruth Farmer and my granddaughter, Polly Ragland. Executor, my son, Obediah Farmer.
Signed 'David Farmer'
Witnesses: Archer Farmer, Jeremiah Farmer.
Recorded 24 Aug 1831."
I have identified Obediah as David Farmer's son based on this will. Let me know if I can be of further help.
