Benjamin S.(or A) Farmer was born about 1817 in Virginia. He married Charlotte W.(or S.) about 1842, perhaps in Bedford County. She was born in Virginia about 1825. Both of these individuals were still alive in June 1880 in Campbell County, VA. They had a large family (at least eleven). The sons that I know are Marcellus J., Benjamin A., Alfred W., Ottaway A., William B., Charles H., and Dell. The daughters were Viola A., Bettie, Rosa B. and Charlotte. The first being born about 1843 and the last about 1864.

Who were Charlotte's (wife of Benjamin) parents?

Who were Benjamin's parents? Perhaps it is Benjamin Farmer of Campbell County who appears in the 1820 through 1840 Censuses. He and his wife had at least 9 children, 4 sons and 5 daughters. He was born between 1770 and 1780 and his wife appears to have been 10 to 15 years younger. (Perhaps multiple marriages?)
