Martha Farquhar, Phebe Farquhar, Texas

Posted: 1004021999000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Farquhar, Whitley, Isbell, Staten
Martha Adella Farquhar was born in Fayette County, TX, Jan. 3, 1846. According to Fayette County, TX, marriage records, she married W. W. Lancaster on July 10, 1867, and then, as Mrs. Adella Lancaster, married Jas. K. Whitley on December 30, 1868. Jas. K. Whitley was born in Carroll County, GA. and enlisted in the Confederate army in Arkansas, before coming to Texas.

According to the 1880 Williamson County, TX, census, Martha's mother was Phebe Farquhar, maiden name not given, 69 years old (in 1880). I have found a Phebe Farquhar buried in ShadyGrove Cemetery, Burnet County, TX, born May 22, 1810, (which fits Martha's mother's age), died April 18, 1899, but don't know for sure this is the right Phebe Farquhar. Any help appreciated.
