Hello from a distant cousin! My father was the Earl McFarland you mention in your 2002 posting. After leaving Barnesville, Dad owned a dairy in the early 1940s, and met and married Mom, Mary Jane Herron, from New Philadelphia, OH. I was born in 1945, and my brother Jim was born in 1950. In 1950 (51?), Dad was transferred to Atlanta, GA where we were raised.

I now live in Charlotte, NC, and Jim lives just outside Atlanta. We have great memories of annual trips to Ohio each summer, which were mostly spent in/around New Philadelphia/Dover, since Mom's family lived in that area. We usually made a 1 or 2-day trip to the family farm outside Barnesville ... it was still occupied by Dad's sister Mildred and her husband Charlie Yockey until the early 1970s(?).

That's the big picture for now, but please get in touch, since we know very little about Dad's parents, Alva and Ida.
