JAMES LEO FARABEE JR was born April 21, 1959, in Angelina County. His father was James Sr. His mothers name was Esterline or Ester. Her father was a lay preacher. James Jr. has a half sister, I am not sure of her name, could be Beckey or Rebecca? The family moved to Tampa, FL, where they lived for a while. In about 1963, Esterline took the children and moved away. In 1964, shortly after James Sr, and I were married he received a letter from Esterline, I was not privy to the contents of the letter but it came from Texas, possibly Lufkin. James Sr replied to the letter and at least as long as I was married to him, he never received another letter. James and I had two daughters. These girls are now in their mid 30's and would like to hear from their half brother.
I understand that James Jr. or someone acting on his behalf, contacted the Farabee family in Tampa, and learned that at that time James Sr was still living. I only obtained this info recently, unfortunately James Sr. died in 1994, just one day short of his 65th birthday.
If anyone can help me locate James Jr, or knows anything about the whereabouts of this family, I would appreciate hearing from them.
