Hi,

Have also this info re William Farrer:

1883 Covington Borough History, Tioga Co., PA-- Tri-County Site
William Farrer, father of Thomas and William Farrer, two well known citizens, is a native of Westmoreland County, England; is in his 94th year, but is able to walk ten miles a day with ease. He came to this county in 1837 and located at Blossburg. He has alternately lived in Blossburg, Liberty and Covington. He was a stone mason and a miner.

William had a daughter Sarah as well (b. 1816 in Wardor). He is buried in Old Settler's Cemetery near Covington, Tioga County, Pennsylvania with this record: "Farrer Wm parish o/ Warecop England born 1789 age 94".
