Subject: [VAGRAYSO] Michael Farmer Grayson VA to Lawrence Co IN
Date: Mon, 31 Aug 2009 17:47:22 -0400
In an ongoing effort to learn about my early FARMER ancestors, I've been looking at the lines of each of the descendants.? Would like to know if anyone connects to the descendants of or knows more about this family of Michael Farmer, son of my ancestors James and Susannah FARMER of Grayson County, VA.
I believe Michael and first wife, Jane Stevenson probably had a few children prior to her early death but so far I am able only to find those children from Michael Farmer's second marriage to Lucy LINGLE, dau of Jacob (of the German LINGLE family of NC and VA.)? I have long thought my Farmers are likely of German origin and have seen the name spelled Pharmer.? I'm also finding a Nathan Farmer in same town....Any clues would be appreciated.? My research below.

Declaration was made in Lawrence county, Indiana 15th June 1871, by Michael Farmer, age 76, a resident of Fayetteville, said county, that he is married; that his wife's name was Jane Stevenson, (now dead), to whom he was married in Rowan county, North Carolina 1819; that he was drafted in Capt Timothy Dalton's company at Grayson County Courthouse Virginia 1814, and was discharged at said courthouse in 1815, and he believes he served 60 days, that he has lost his discharge; that he marched with his regiment to Norfolk, VA, but did not reach there; that he received a land warrant for said service for 160 acres.
A note in the "Brief of Claim" was that it was rejected by reason of insufficient service. Report from 3rd Auditor, shows that Michael Farmer Sr and Jr served in Capt. Timothy Dalton's company, Virginia militia, from Feb 8, to March 3, 1815.
