It's an interesting name. I ran into it a few years ago ...

Only one hit in the entire database at rootsireland.ie
Marriage       Phares       Joseph       1844       Co. Waterford


At familysearch.com using only that spelling, and birth in IRE -- again only 10 hits (and that includes married names, so even fewer):
https://familysearch.org/search/records/index#count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3Aphares%20%2Bbirth_place%3Aireland

There is a nice write up on the name here:
http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/c/o/x/Terri-Cox-OH/WEBSITE-0001/UHP-0751.html

Ancestry: Phares Name MeaningOf uncertain origin. Perhaps a variant of English Phare, a variant spelling of Fare, or of English Phair, a variant spelling of Fair.



********************* information on the family of both Francis Kenny and Katherine Phares they were from co. Wexford. I imagine they were born in the 1830's and married in the 1850's but I am not sure.

This couple had a daughter named Bridget Kenny born (info that I have) Feb, 18th 1856 in Ireland (Wexford possibly). She died in Chicago, IL 1909
