I can't believe it has taken me nearly a year to discover your message. I teach in a small academy near Detroit and guess it keeps me too busy to keep tabs on even the things I find of great interest. So... you descend from Ben. That is quite fascinating to me. From which of his and Emily's children? I descend from their son John Blair Farabee, who married Ina Fowler and died just shortly after I was born. I am in possession of the mantle clock that Ben and Emma started housekeeping with, following their marriage in 1860. I also have copies of several letters Ben and Emma wrote to his mother after their marriage. These letters are now housed in the historical collection at Ole Miss in Oxford, Miss. They are wonderful reading.

My grandfather remembered his grandfather Ben, that he was a small man who walked with a pronounced limp.

Ben Farabee is without question one of my favorite ancestors. I've always said that if I ever have a son, I'll name him Benjamin.

I would love to hear from you. I am writing this from the library at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Mich., so you don't want to use this e-mail address. My school e-mail is
