Glad to see a Farabee forum started! My great grandmother was a Anna J. Farabee b. Sept. 20, 1856 in Farabee, Indiana, Washington County, died in Johnstown, Florida in 1933. Anna was married to Floyd M. Thompson b. Oct. 12, 1858 in Harrison County, IN. I'm fairly sure Anna's parents were Alfred Farabee b. Dec. 21, 1813 in N.C. died Nov. 6, 1896 in Farabee, IN and Maragret Sellers(his second wife) b. Nov. 20, 1835 died Oct. 2, 1862. Alfred and Maragret had 3 children Anna (my ggmother), Maragret b. April 1860 d. 1917, and Mary Jane b. Sept. 1852 d. April 1923. Alfred's first wife was Sally Newland b. 1817 d. 1849. Sally and Alfred had 4 children: Clark Lewis b. Jan. 1841 d. Dec. 1869, Alfred Perry b. Dec. 1843 d. 1917, Nancy Ellen b. Oct.1848 d. 1917, and William Henderson b. May 1839 d. Jan.1910.

Alfred's parents were John Farabee b. 1786 N.J. died 1856 and Amy Payne b. 1790 N.C. died 1858 in Farabee, IN.

John Farabee's parents were Benjamin Farabee b. 1760 Kent Co. Deleware died Sept.1836 Davidson Co. N.C. and Mary Cook b. 1765 N.J. died Davidson Co. N.C. 1850.

Benjamin Farabee's parents were Caleb b. 1724 d. 1792 Kent Co. N.C. and Sara Furby(?) b. 1752 d. ? Kent Co. N.C. Caleb and Sara had 6 Children: Joesph b. 1766, Thomas b. 1774, Benjamin b. 1760, John b. 1764, Samuel b. 1769, and George b. 1771.

Hope this info is helpful. I'd love to have any additional info to fill in the gaps.
