Joseph McFarland, M. D. 

Born August 29, 1827. Died January 5, 1913. 

Joseph McFarland was elected family historian and was author- 
ized to compile and publish the family history at a McFarland re- 
union, held in Mansfield, Ohio, about ten years ago. On account 
of the infirmity of age he was unable to complete the work, and 
gave it into the hands of the present Editor in August, 1911. 

Andrew McFarland, Lucas, Ohio, Route 2, 
is now the oldest living member of the family. 


"An old house has an atmosphere which cannot be carried into a 
new house. The walls have heard voices now gone silent; the halls 
have echoed footfalls no longer audible; the roof has protected a rich 
and varied life of joy and sorrow, of work and rest, which has passed 
on like a river into other countries and flows on under other trees 
and skies. But this vanished life has left its impression on the old 
house, has humanized it and overlaid it with all manner of sacred 
associations; so that, in a very real way, the old life goes on within 
its walls and keeps the old house still an old home. In like manner, 
the generations that have done their work and gone to their rest 
still live in the world which has passed out of their possession into 
ours; so that the great human family remains unbroken and contin- 
uous and the fathers still touch the sons who have come into their 
places. We do not vanish from the earth like summer clouds that 
leave no trace behind; we work ourselves into nature and society and 
leave something of ourselves in this home of our human experience. 
The vanished generations live with us and in us in ways past our 
knowledge; we are born into the earth they have made fruitful by 
their toil; and into the civilization they have builded like a great in- 
visible house over our heads. They have overlaid the world with 
associations which enrich and warm and humanize it; so that in a 
very true sense, the great spirits who have departed this life are still 
with us in the strife of our earthly days." 


"At end of love, at end of life. 
At end of hope, at end of strife, 
At end of all we cling to so, 
The sun is setting — must we go? 

At dawn of love, at dawn of life, 
At dawn of peace that follows strife; 
At dawn of all we long for so, 
The sun is rising — let us go." 



Book of the Generations 


William McFarland and 
Nancy Kili^ore 









God's supreme interest on this earth is the Family. Persons, and 
persons only, have intrinsic value and sacredness. The value and 
sacredness of all places and all institutions is wholly borrowed from 
the persons to whom they minister. Church and nation, school and 
sacrament. Sabbath and workshop, work and worship are all for 
persons. They have no value in themselves, and no reason for exist- 
ence except as they help and enrich the life of persons. Now all 
human personalities are set in families and have no normal existence 
nor healthy development outside of the family. When the family life 
for any reason fails, the only thing we can do to save the person is 
to set up an imitation family, to take the place of the real family that 
failed. The family and not an individual is the unit of society. The 
problem of social reform and betterment is the problem of the family. 
The only valuable institutions and enterprises are those that minister 
to the life and development of healthy, happy, honest, righteous fam- 
ilies as families. All others are of the Devil and must be cast out. 
Any style of life or education that seeks to separate the individual 
from the family or that seeks to advance the person in position or 
prosperity by disconnecting family ties, either past or future, how- 
ever innocent it may appear in itself, must be ruthlessly forbidden. 
Neither business nor charity can be allowed to prosper through the 
service in office, school, hospital or asylum of the women best fitted 
by birth and advantage to be the mothers of healthy families. To 
take such women permanently from the home for any kind of so-called 
social or religious service is to rob society of its richest asset, and 
can only end in the most lamentable bankruptcy. 

The great problems of life are now seen to be social problems, 
the problem of the welfare of all the people. Now there are no prob- 
lems or conditions in general. The concrete case alone has reality. 
The concrete problem of society is the condition of the family. The 
concrete case of the family is this: Some families, in spite of ap- 
parently adverse conditions, or by the help of good conditions, in- 
crease in numbers and in value to themselves and to society. Other 
families, apparently as hopeful, under the same adverse or propitious 
conditions, decrease in numbers and finally disappear, leaving no 
descendants to be of value to themselves or to society. Why? The 
full and complete answer to this question will furnish data and prin- 
ciples for the solution of all our social problems. Those concrete con- 
ditions, principles and methods of life that save and strengthen the 
family and those alone can save and strengthen that aggregation of 
families known as society. 

Our branch of the McFarland family, in common with all the other 
branches of this family, with each generation has steadily increased 
in numbers and in ability to take care of itself and to have left over 
a good surplus of material and moral wealth with which to bless other 
families less fortunate. This is an occasion of family pride and gives 
a peculiar value to this family history. As you read this history and 
pass from name to name, give attention to the character of the life 
and occupation of each and notice the surplus values and services 
rendered to the nation, the state, the church, the school, the profes- 
sions and to private life. These extra values and services are alone 
ample reason for the publication of this history. It is these concrete 
examples of family prosperity that must serve as a guide to future

ji^ Many of the large families in the United States have complete 

P genealogies. A large number of very earnest and intelligent and busy 
>» people are giving a great amount of time and hard work to the com- 
pilation and study of these family histories. No one, so far as I have 
^^^ been able to ascertain, regrets as misspent either the time or money 
^ Involved. Many thousand of these histories have been published. 
^ The general effect of the study of the history of one's own family is 
^ to deeply increase our love for and interest towards persons rather 
than things, to increase the ties of relationship, and the memory of 
^our loved ones, to broaden and enliven our whole interest in life, and 
to encourage brotherly and democratic ideas. 

The history begins with the coming of the founder of the family 

America, and includes almost every member of the family for 160 

years. If this history had not been compiled at this time, much of it 

^would have been forever out of our reach. This printed record will 

.be eagerly consulted by all future generations of the family, and 

,^uch of it will no doubt be printed again and again in future histories 

>;^^f various branches of the family. When we add to our present In- 

O^rest in this record, the accumulating interest of the future genera- 

^tions, its publication becomes a most worthy enterprise, a definite 

'contribution to the joy of living, worth many times the labor and 

money cost. 

As a teacher and clergyman, it has been my whole business in life 
to deal with persons rather than with things. My time is given to a 
study of people and to the consideration of personal life and character. 
It has been my good fortune to know intimately and personally the 
people of more than twenty communities in 7 states. Some of these 
communities are quite large, comprising several thousand people. It 
is also my good fortune to have a somewhat intimate personal ac- 
quaintance with quite a number of the persons whose names occur 
in this book, and I suppose they are a fair average of the whole. I 
am very glad to bear testimony that the McFarlands, measured by 
any fair standard of industry, religion, business, or private life are far 
superior to the average of the people, particularly in those qualities 
of honesty and reliability which make people valuable to society and 
worth knowing personally. My love and respect for you has grown 
much since I began to compile this history. You have been on my 
mind and heart in such a way as to deeply increase my interest in 
each one of you as I learned of you and your life. This was true, even 
of those few (happily, very few) who were so glad to hear from me, 
that they allowed me to write to them several times, enclosing each 
time a list of questions and a stamp, without making any reply. I 
am sorry that they did not realize how glad I would have been to hear 
from them. No doubt they are very Interesting persons, and I count 
it my personal loss that I do not know them better. On the whole the 
responses were prompt and the interest hearty. I think I made every 
reasonable eiiort to secure complete data for each name. In a few 
cases it was absolutely impossible to find the desired items. In other 
cases, but these very few, the data could easily have been given, but 
for some reason was withheld. Even half a dozen of my alluring and 
persuasive letters failed to secure a response. I say this that future 
generations if they find some data missing, may not lay the blame 
with me, nor with my heirs and assigns forever. 

In no case have I spoken in praise or attempted to delineate the 
character of any member of the family. I could not have done this 
for all of the adult members without increasing beyond reason both 
the task of compilation and the cost of publication. Had I attempted 
this, the same noble adjectives and terms of praise would have oc- 
curred so often as to have been both monotonous and meaningless. I 
would suggest to each one, however, that it would be a very wise 
thing to preserve some description of the ancestors in their own im- 

mediate line, along with all obituaries or other printed matter that 
relates to the family. 

I consulted many family genealogies in search of the best method 
of arrangement. I did not find a single one that to my mind presented 
the data in as brief, concise, definite form or a form as easy of refer- 
ence as this outline form, which is almost entirely original. This 
method saves all repetition of names and groups each family in a form 
convenient to the eye. Some histories with several hundred pages, 
costing three times as much as this one, have very much less material 
than this. 

The thanks of the entire family are due to those wide-awake 
members whose advance contributions and promises made this publi- 
cation possible. We are all also under great obligation to our aged 
historian. Dr. Joseph McFarland, now the oldest living member of the 
family, who for many years carried the burden of this history on his 
heart, and without whose labors and assistance it would have been 
well nigh impossible. 

If you will send me notices of birth, deaths, marriages, or other 
items of family interest, I will be glad to keep a permanent record of 
them. I and my family can always be reached by addressing us at 
Dundee, 111., as we will always keep our address on record here, so 
that letters can be promptly forwarded wherever we may be. I also 
want to urge upon each member of the family a matter of great im- 
portance. Whenever you move or change your address, keep your 
address on file at the office printed in this history, so that mail ad- 
dressed to you at any future time to the address here given can be 
promptly forwarded. Do not neglect this. Thus you will always have 
an address where anyone can be sure of reaching you. 

Great care has been taken to have ail the dates correct. The final 
draft of the copy was carefully compared with the data as received, 
and the proof was carefully read several times, but in copying and 
printing so many dates, it is almost impossible to totally avoid error. 
If any such errors occur, please make the correct entry in your own 
book and send the correct date to me, so that I may correct my own 
copy for future reference. In some cases two or three dates were 
given for one event. In such cases, two dates are sometimes given, or 
that date is given which seemed to be supported by the best evidence. 

It is my sincere hope that this history may serve to increase our 
love and respect for each other, and thus enrich the life of every mem- 
ber of the family. With love and good will toward every member of 
the family, with best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New 
Year, with a sincere hope that you may have many happy returns of 
your birthday, and also have numerous other prosperous and blessed 
days; with a cordial invitation to each and all of you to come, singly 
or all at once, and take dinner with me, I am. 

Truly and affectionately yours, 


Dundee, 111., Dec. 1, 1912. 


Abbreviations, b, born; d, died; m, married. 

Family outline and index will be found in the back. 

Turn first to your own immediate family and you will comprehend 
at once the arrangement and the method of indicating relationship. 
The arrangement is entirely uniform throughout. In every case chil- 
dren are arranged in order of age, and the number preceding the 
name indicates the number of the child, beginning with the eldest. 
The system of margins is uniform, each generation having a margin 
of its own, so that with a little care the various relationship can be 
readily seen. 

In the groups of small children, the surname is omitted. 



Origin of the Name and Early History 
of the Clan 

The clan McFarland was founded by Gilchrist, brother of Mald- 
uin, third Earl of Lenox. The first Earl of Lenox was Aluin, a des- 
cendant of Kenneth, King of Scotland. His son Aluin succeeded him 
as second Earl of Lenox, and left two sons, Malduin, third Earl of 
Lenox, and Gilchrist, founder of the clan McFarland, and ancestor of 
the first Laird McFarland. The family of Gilchrist continued as 
vassals of the Earl of Lenox, whose chief castles were Dumbarton and 
Ballock. Malcolm, fifth Earl of Lenox, and the Earl of Athol were the 
only two earls that declared allegiance to Robert Bruce in 1305-6. The 
entire McFarland clan fought with Bruce at Bannockburn, June 23, 
1314, and contributed much to that A'ictory which forever freed Scot- 
land from the British yoke. Duncan, the eighth Earl of Lenox, left 
no male issue. At the death of his daughter, the Duchess Isabella 
(wife of Murdoc Stewart, Duke of Albany and Regent of the Kingdom 
of Scotland) in 1460, the clan McFarland claimed the Earldom of 
Lenox as heirs male. While their claim had the strongest legal sup- 
port, they were strenuously opposed by pretended feudal heirs, and 
after a long and bloody conflict, lasting 28 years, the estate was finally 
settled on Stewart Darnley. In this unsuccessful and disastrous at- 
tempt to secure the Earldom, the chief of the clan perished, and the 
clan suffered severely and the greater part of the survivors took 
refuge in remote parts of the country. The Darnleys would have eur 
tireiy destroyed the McFarlands but for the opportune support given 
to the Darnley family by one of the clan. Andrew MacFarland, a son- 
in-law of John Stewart, Lord Darnley and Earl of Lenox, rendered 
great assistance to the Darnley family at a time of difficulty. By this 
support he saved the remnant of the clan and recovered for them the 
greater part of their hereditary possessions. They soon recovered 
their strength, not by favor or fortune, but by the prolific birth of 
sturdy sons and daughters. The house of Lenox came to an end in 
1661 with the death without issue of the second Esme Stewart, fif- 
teenth in line. Charles II. transferred the titles and honors of this 
noble family to one of his illegitimate children, Charles, the son of the 
Duchess of Portsmouth. 

Gilchrist, brother of Malduin, third Earl of Lenox, and founder of 
the McFarland clan, received from his father, second Earl of Lenox, 
the grant of a large tract of land in the north of Lenox at the head 
of Loch Long, in the highlands of Scotland. This tract, called Arro- 
char, was the hereditary possession of the clan McFarland for about 
600 years (1200-1784). The original charter for this grant is still in 
existence. These lands of Arrochar have continued in the family by 
a direct male line until the sale of the estate in 1784, when William, 
Laird of MacFarland, sold Arrochar to Furgeson of Wraith for £28,000 
(twenty-eight thousand pounds). In 1821 it was sold by Furguson to 
Sir James Colquhoun for £78,000. 

Gilchrist left a son, Duncan, designated in the charters as Mac 
Gilchrist (son of Gilchrist). To this Duncan Mac Gilchrist, Malcolm, 
the fourth Earl of Lenox, confirmed by a new charter the grant of 

Arrochar. This new charter "confirms and ratifies that grant which 
Malduin, my grandfather, Count of Lenox, made to his brother Gil- 
christ concerning the territory of the greater part of Arrochar de 
Luss." Duncan Mac Gilchrist married his cousin, Matilda, daughter 
of Malcolm, Earl of Lenox. This was prabably the occasion of the 
new charter confirming and ratifying the original grant. Duncan was 
succeeded by his son, Maldonich, or Malduin, whose first son and 
successor was named Partholan, which is Gaelic for Bartholomew. 
This Partholan was soon called Pharlan and Pharlane, and the next 
generation added Mac (son of), and it was written Mac Pharlan, 
which was soon spelled Mac Farlan and Mac Farlane. Thus in two 
generations the family name was changed from Mac Gilchrist to Mac 
Farlane and this new name was at once adopted as the surname of 
the clan. The name Mac Pharlane and Mac Farlane is used inter- 
changeably in the documents of that time. In Brown's "History of the 
Highlands," it is spelled Mac Pharlan and Macfarlane. In "Waverly" 
and "Rob Roy," Scott spells it Mac rarlane. In "Cadyow Castle," he 
speaks of "Wild Macfarlane's plaided clan." The spelling McFarland 
is confined almost entirely to the American descendants of those mem- 
bers of the clan that fled from Scotland to the north of Ireland in 1608. 
Other branches of the family spell it McFarlin, but all who bear the 
name, however it is spelled, are descendants of Gilchrist, son of the 
second Earl of Lenox, who lived about 1150 A. D. 

Pharlan (Partholan) was succeeded by his son Malcolm McPhar- 
lan. To him was confirmed the lands of Arrochar and four islands in 
Loch Lomond w^ere added to estate. The next chief, Duncan, sixth 
Laird Mac Farlane, married in 1395 Christian Campbell, a daughter 
of Sir Colin Compbell of Lochow, and a sister of Duncan, first Lord of 
Campbell and ancestor of the present Duke of Argyle. For several 
succeeding generations the names of those who bore the title Laird 
Mac Farlane are unknown. After 1513 the title was held by Andrew 
Mac Farlane, whose father Sir John Mac Farlane, was killed with the 
Earl of Lenox at the battle of Flodden Field, Sept. 6, 1513, Sir John 
having been knighted the evening before the battle. Sir Andrew mar- 
ried Lary Margaret Cunningham, daughter of William, Earl of Glen- 
cairn, Lord High Treasurer under James V. His son, Duncan, Laird 
MacFarlane, was one of the very first to make open profession of the 
Christian religion in the Kingdom. The entire clan were always pro- 
testant, and often got into trouble on that account. Duncan joined 
the Earls of Lenox and Glencairn against Queen Mary in 1544. When 
Matthew, Earl of Lenox, returned from England a little later with 
troops given him by Henry VIII, Duncan sent his relative and vassal, 
Walter Mac Farlane of Tarbet, with 400 followers who rendered Len- 
ox great service. Duncan and a great number of the clan perished 
at the battle of Pinkney September 10, 1547. His son Andrew Mac 
Farlane took a bold and adventurous part in the civil wars of the 
period, and joined himself to the Regent Murray, while nearly all the 
other Highland chiefs were warmly attached to the cause of Queen 
Mary. At the battle of Langside near Glascow, May 10, 1568, when 
the result was in doubt, Andrew MacFarlane with 500 men 
of his own name and dependents fell on the Queen's troops with such 
vigor that the archers were put to flight, and he was acknowledged by 
all to be the chief instrument in that great victory. Members of the 
clan in this battle captured three of Queen Mary's Standards, which 
were long preserved in the family. On the evening of that day Regent 
Murray bestowed upon Andrew MacFarlane "the crest of a demi-sav- 
age proper, holding in his dexter hand a sheaf of arrows, and pointing 
with his sinister hand to an Imperial crown, with the motto, 'This I'll 
defend.' " The MacFarlane war cry was "Loch Sloy," and the pibroch 
was "Hoggil Nam Bo." Their badge worn in the bonnet was the cran- 


Walter MacFarlane, grandson of this Andrew joined himself with 
the rest of the Highlanders and became as sturdy a champion of the 
Royal Party as his grandfather had been an opponent. "During Crom- 
well's time he was twice besieged in his own house, and his castle of 
Inverness was afterward burned down by the English." His wife was 
Agnes Maxwell, daughter of Sir Patrick Maxwell of Newark. His suc- 
cessor, John Mac Farlane, married first Susanna Buchanan, by whom 
he had no issue; and second, Helen, a daughter of Francis Stewart, 
Earl of Bothwell and Margaret Douglas, daughter of the Earl of An- 
gus, by whom he had his successor, Walter; and thirdly. Lady Eliza- 
beth, daughter of the Duke of Argyle, by whom he had four sons; and 
fourthly Margaret, daughter of James Murray of Strowan. Walter 
married Margaret, daughter of Sir James Semple, by whom he had two 
sons. The oldest, John, having no issue, the second son, Andrew, be- 
came next Laird. He married Elizabeth, daughter of John Buchanan 
of Ross, and had two sons, John and Walter. John married, first, 
Agnes, daughter of Hugh Wallace of Wolmet, no issue; second, Lady 
Helen, daughter of Robert, Viscount of Arbuthnot, by whom he had 
three sons, Walter, William and Alexander. Walter married Lady 
Elizabeth Erskine, but died childless. William, his brother, succeed- 
ed to the title, and was the last Laird McFarlane. He married Christ- 
iana, daughter of James Dewar of Vogrie. As stated above he sold 
Arrochar to Furgeson of Wraith in 1784. He died in 1787, and his 
eldest son and heir, Hugh Norman MacFarlane emigrated to America, 
and settled in Chenango Co., N. Y., where he secured a vast tract of 
land. The name was changed to McFarland to conform to the almost 
universal spelling in this country. His great-grandson, William Wal- 
lace McFarland, born July 22, 1834, a very prominent lawyer, of Hart- 
ford, Conn, and New York City, in 1871 purchased 200 acres of land 
at Clifton, Staten Island, which he made into a stately park, over 
whose gateway is the old historical name of "Arrochar." 

We have given this brief history of the chiefs of the clan because 
the general history of the family is so closely associated with that 
of the chief. Many of the side lines were also famous, both in war 
and peace. The clan constantly grew in numbers, and every branch 
of the family up to the present day is characterized by a large number 
of male issue, a feature quite uncommon in increasing families. To- 
day the name is the dominant one in many of the counties of the north 
and west Highlands and in north Ireland. Many members of the family 
are found in every city of England, and in every part of the United 
States and Canada. By their vigor they have entirely absorbed many 
of the once prominent families of Scotland and at the same time have 
given rise to a large number of vigorous and prominent families of 
other names, who took the first name of some McFarland side line as 
a surname. Among these are the Allans, MacAUans, MacNairs, Mc- 
Williams, McKinleys, McRobbs, Smiths, Millers, Weirs, Cantrells, and 
perhaps fifty others. Many branches of the McFarland family emi- 
grated to America and formed large settlements in almost everyone 
of the original colonies. The first large number came in 1718, and 
others followed almost every year thereafter until the Revolution. 
Many of them were prominent in Colonial affairs, in business, in poli- 
tics and religion, and in war. Several of these branches of the Mc- 
Farland family have very complete family histories compiled. Much 
interesting data concerning the clan will be found in the following 
books: "The Clan MacFarlane," by Cynthia M. Little. "History of 
the Highlands," Browne. "History of Scotland," Scott. "Origin and 
Descent of the Highland Clans," Buchanan. "History of Scotland," P. 
F. Tytler. "Clans of the Scottish Highlands," James Logan. "The 
Register of Dumbarton." "Church History," by Petrie. "History of 
Dumbarton," by Joseph Irving. "The McFarland Index," Newberry 
Library, Chicago, 111. 

The clan MacFarlane rendered great service in ridding the High- 
lands of the native savage tribes, and members of the clan are credited 
with killing the two last members of this native race. This fact is 
the origin of the "demi-savage" in the coat of arms. The following 
poem of unknown origin has long been in the possession of members 
of the family still living in Scotland. 

The MacFarlane's Gathering. 

Send the fiery cross swift o'er the dark glens and fountains, 

Kindle the Beacon on dreary Ross-Dhu; 
Let hundreds blaze high on the Arrochar mountains, 

The flowers of MacFarlane will soon be in view. 
Bid the pibroch sound bravely through gloomy Glenfruin, 

Though MacGregor be backed by the proud "Sider Roy;" (British 
Red Coat). 
He marches to battle, he marches to ruin, 

We'll welcome him there with the shout of "Loch Sloy." 
When the clan is insulted — for honor's their darling — 

They will die on the heath if they cannot prevail; 
For never a clan like the clan of MacFarlane 

Trod the glen of the Saxon — or the hill of the Gael. 
When round by the side of Ben Lomond they're wending 

Their proud stately march fills the bosom with joy. 
While the pibroch, it's wild, stormy measure is blending 

With "This I'll Defend," and the shout of "Loch Sloy." 
MacFarlane steps forth in the bloom of his vigor; 

His sons march behind like a bright ridge of flame; 
Now welcome to battle, ye sons of Clan Gregor, 

MacFarlane descends to the field of his fame. 
Bid the war pipe resound through the wilds of Glenfruin 

Let the claymore in strength sweep round and destroy; 
MacFarlane will fall or Macgregor meet ruin. 

On, on, to the battle, my heroes, "Loch Sloy." 

Ye younger and more civilized McFarlands, feel ye not the strong 
blood bound within you as you hear this stirring call? Industry and 
civilization have secured for us much physical ease and comfort. In 
enjoying these we must not fall into moral and spiritual indolence and 
indifference. The tents of moral ease and the policy of comfortable 
conformity with the powers of unrighteousness are not for us. A hun- 
dred generations of aggressive and untamed blood demand of us a 
life of moral vigor and unflinching spiritual courage. There are still 
"Macgregors" with whom we cannot live on terms of friendship with- 
out loss of honor. We are false to our ancestry and to our heritage 
in the human family if we are content to be found among that large 
and respectable company of nobodies, who "mean well feebly," and 
who destroy so many good works, not by blowing them up, but by sit- 
ting on them, the moral indifference of their respectable selfishness 
being the curse of the human race. We now wear soft raiment 
and dwell in fine houses, but we must not lose that quick sensitive- 
ness and "quarrelsome temper" toward our moral and spiritual ene- 
mies, which has ever been characteristic of our blood. As of old in all 
questions of moral honor and principle we must 

"die on the heath if we cannot prevail. 
For never a clan like the clan of MacFarlane, 

Trod the glen of the Saxon, or the hill of the Gael." 

The Scotch-Irish McFarlands. 
The Macgregors and the MacFarlanes were the two most turbu- 
lent and predatory clans in the Highlands. On account of this char- 
acteristic and their unbridled independence, they were nearly always 
in trouble with the rulers. In 1594 the MacFarlanes were denounced 


as robbers and oppressors, and in 1608 were declared rebels by law. 
At this time and soon after, many members of the clan fled from their 
native home. In suppressing a Catholic rebellion in Ireland in 1612, 
King James I. confiscated Ulster in the north of Ireland. Ulster con- 
tained six counties. Colonists from England and Scotland were urged 
to occupy these six counties. County Londonderry was set apart for 
Scottish colonization. This call gave the MacFarlanes an opportun- 
ity to escape trouble at home, and many of them with their families 
accompanied other Scotch families to Ulster, while the majority of 
the clan remained in Scotland. Londonderry and North Ireland be- 
came a prominent McFarland center for over 100 years. It was here 
that the spelling was changed to McFarland. Parker, in his history of 
Londonderry, says: "These Scotch Irish were a very peculiar people. 
They were Scotch-Irish in character and name; of Irish vivacity, gen- 
erosity and daring; Scotch in industry, frugality and resolution; a 
race in whose composition nature seems, for once, to have kindly 
blended the qualities that render men interesting with those that ren- 
der them prosperous." 

In 1718 a company of these Scotch-Irish Presbyterians, comprising 
5 ship loads, came to America and settled in Eastern Massachusetts 
and New Hampshire. In 1830 another large company of them settled 
in Northern Virginia and Western Maryland, along the Potomac river 
and in the Shenandoah valley. There were many McFarlands in both 
of these colonies. Our own McFarland family began its career in the 
United States in this Virgina-Maryland colony. These Scotch-Irish 
colonists differed in many respects from all the other English settlers. 
They did not mix with the English settlers, but pushed into the back 
woods and formed a special class of colonists not entirely amenable 
to conventional proceedure. Lord Dunmore, Governor of Virginia, just 
before the Revolution, in one of his reports to the Colonial Secretary, 
has this to say of these Scotch-Irish settlers: "They acquire no attach- 
ment to place. Wandering about seems engrafted in their nature, and 
it is a weakness incident thereto, that they should foverer imagine 
that the lands further off are still better than those on which they 
are already settled." The McFarlands were quite numerous among 
this Scotch-Irish colony, and before many years McFarlands from the 
New England colony went down and joined them. The family furnish- 
ed many noted men to all the professions, and was prominent in the 
Indian and Revolutionary wars. Notable among these was Major 
Daniel McFarland, and his son, Capt. William McFarland, of Amity, 
Washington Co., Pa. Several of these McFarland families have com- 
plete genealogies. True to their nature, they soon spread over the 
entire United States. 

Church Membership. 

Quite a number gave their church membership, which I am glad 
to add to their record. But the item was not definitely asked for, and 
the absence of a statement as to church membership is no indication 
of non-membership. 



As William McFarland died while the children were very small, 
we are dependent for the facts of his life upon the stories told to the 
children and grandchildren by his wife, who survived him many years. 
We have some of these stories in the handwriting of the grandchil- 
dren who were grown when their grandmother died, and had heard 
her tell them. From these we gather the following items: 

Wm. McParland's parents and grandparents belonged to the 
Scotch-Irish settlement in Ulster in the north of Ireland. Because of 
some trouble arising out of one of the numerous political disturb- 
ances, they returned to Scotland and settled near Edinburg, where 
William w'as born and brought up. He joined the British army and 
came to the United States as a captain at the time of the old French 
and Indian war, 1855-1863. For some reason he left the army and be- 
came a part of the Scotch-Irish settlement in Western Virginia. He 
also had a part in Lord Dunmore's Indian war in 1774. This incident of 
the Indian war is related: On one occasion about four miles from the 
fort they were compelled to retreat in disorder, every man for himself. 
Wm. McFarland was pursued by two large Indians. He ran as far as 
he could, and then stopping behind a large tree, he held his hat out to 
one side. One of the Indians shot through the hat. He dropped the 
hat, and both Indians left their guns and ran up to scalp him. He 
shot one of them and the other ran away. He always remained true 
to the King, and at one time during the revolutionary war, was captured 
by the American troops and held prisoner for awhile. It is not certain 
that he actually bore arms against the American troops, but he may 
have done so. He was married in 1777, and his youngest child was 
born in 1790. He died while the children were small, probably very 
soon after 1790. The curcumstances of his death were these: He was 
helping a neighbor in the harvest field on a very hot day. Going to a 
spring of cold water, he bathed his head and hands and feet in the 
cold water. On his way to the house he fell in a faint and died soon 
afterward. The family home was in Virginia, probably in what is now 
Berkeley Co., West Virginia, as the children were born in that county. 

There is no reason to question any of the these statements, except 
perhaps, the one that he was a Captain in the British army, and that 
may be true. There was, however, a Major Daniel McFarland, and his 
son. Captain William McFarland, who were prominent in both these 
Indian wars and in the Revolution, who afterward settled in Washing- 
ton Co., Pa. The similarity of names may have led to a confusion of 
the real facts. Very full accounts of these Indian and other colonial 
wars have been published, including a full list of all who took part in 
them. I spent three days in the Newberry Library in Chicago, exam- 
ining these records and the colonial records of Virginia and Western 
Maryland. A full list of the regular forces and the colonial militia 
engaged in the French and Indian war and Lord Dunmore's war has 
been published. In the roll of the Virginia militia, organized in Sep- 
tember, 1758, occurs the name of Wm. McFarland, as a private in the 
regiment of Col. John Buchanan. No other McFarland occurs in the 
entire roll, except the Daniel and William McFarland, mentioned above. 
Also in the roll of companies organized at the call of Lord Dunmore 
in 1774 to defend the frontier, only one McFarland appears, and that 


is William McFarland, a private in a company commanded by Capt. 
Daniel Smith. This Capt. Smith was the crown officer for Fincastle 
Co., Va., including nearly all of the present states of West Virginia 
and Kentucky. Consequently I am not sure that he was ever a captain 
in the regular British army, although he may have been. I rather 
think, however, that he came over to the Scotch-Irish colony in Vir- 
ginia before the time of the French and Indian war, and enlisted in the 
Colonial militia. Col. John Buchanan was also a member of this 
Scotch-Irish settlement, and the McFarlands and Buchanans were al- 
ways closely associated. Mrs. McFarland was born about 1841. Sup- 
posing him to have been about her age, or a little older, he must have 
been about 20 years old in 1758, although he might have been some 
older. His life must have fallen between 1735-1795. Although there 
were many McFarlands in this Virginia Scotch-Irish settlement, we do 
not know of any who were closely related to William McFarland, 
though I do know of several who were not, as I looked up all the 
Mci- arlands in the genealogical department of the Newberry Library. 
The fact that all three of his sons were shoemakers, and that two of 
them followed shoemaking as their only occupation, seems to indi- 
cate that he must have been a shoemaker also, although the boys may 
have learned the trade with their mother's people, as their father 
died while they were so young. 

William McFarland married Nancy Kilgore in 1777-1778, or very 
early in 1779. There were more Kilgores than McFarlands in this 
Scotch-Irish settlement. In the U. S. census of 1790, of which the 
heads of families have been published, there are several Kilgores in 
every county. Nothing is known of her family, nor of that interesting 
period between the death of her husband and the maturity of her 
children. After her sons were grown, she lived with William at Fred- 
ericktown, Md., and with John at Bucklestown, Berkley Co., Va. When 
William moved to Ohio in 1826, she remained with John, and went to 
Ohio with John and his family in 1831. From 1831 to 1836 she lived 
with William, but when William moved to Indiana in 1836, she return- 
ed to John's and remained there until her death in 1840-1841. Their 
home in Ohio was in Green County, a few miles south of Xenia. She 
was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, holding her mem- 
bership with a church called Sardis, 4 miles south of Xenia. She was 
remembered by her grandchildren as a very large, fleshy woman, and 
a great knitter, who was about 99 years of age at the time of her 
death. If this is so, she must have been born about 1741-2, and have 
been 48 years of age when her youngest child was born. The date of 
her death is fixed by the fact that she died just before John removed 
from Ohio to Indiana in the fall and winter of 1841-1842. 

To William and Nancy McFarland were born five children: 

1. Robert, b Dec. 27, 1779; d Feb. 5, 1866; aged 86 yrs., 1 mo., 8 da. 

2. Nancy, b Mar. 1,1784; d May 4, 1864; aged 80 yrs., 2 mo., 3 da.

4. Landers, b between Robert and Nancy, or William and John, 
d a young man, unmarried. 

5. John, b 1790; d 1857; aged 67. 




Robert McFarland, shoemaker, b Dec. 27, 1779, in Va., probably In what 
is now Berkeley Co., West Va.; d Feb. 5, 1866, in Washington Twp.,

Previous to 1831 Robert McFarland lived in Loudon Co., Va., in 
Frederick Co., Md., and probably in some counties of West Va., along 
the Potomac river. As a journeyman shoemaker, he never stayed long 
in one place and frequently moved his family with him from place 
to place. He was a very large, strong man, over 6 feet tall, and 
weighing over 200 pounds. In those rough frontier days he was the 
hero of many a village scrimmage. He was converted in middle age, 
and with his wife, joined the Methodist Episcopal church. 

Anna Main was a small woman, of German parentage. The name 
was a very common one at that time among the Germans of Southern 
Pennsylvania and Maryland. Four of their children having moved to 
Richland Co., O., Robert McFarland, with the rest of his family, moved 
in wagons to Ohio in the fall of 1831, settling in Washington Twp., 
Richland Co. Washington Twp. lies directly south of Madison Twp., 
in which Mansfield, the county seat, is situated. Washington Village 
is near the northeast corner of the township, about a mile from the 
north and east line. The postofRce was called Barnes P. O.. but has 
been discontinued many years. 

Nov. 29, 1831, Robert McFarland bought 80 acres of Virginia Mil- 
itary school land of John K. Barnes for $500. This was the south ^ 
of northeast 14 section 1, of Washington Twp. He and his family 
lived with his son John the first winter, and moved onto the land in 
the spring of 1832. His sons did the farming while he confined himself 
entirely to shoemaking. His sons, William, John and Isaac had also 
learned the trade with him. About 1840 his brother William McFar- 
land, from Indiana, visited the settlement in Richland Co. William 
McFarland was an ardent Abolitionist, and had already left the Meth- 
odist Episcopal church on account of its position on the slavery ques- 
tion, and had joined the Wesleyan Methodists. This was just before 
the Methodist church was itself divided into two bodies by the slavery 
issue. As a result of his visit to Washington township, Robert McFar- 


land and wife and his son George and his wife, and other members of 
the family left the Methodist Episcopal church and joined the Wes- 
leyan Methodists. Anna Main McFarland had an older sister Susan- 
nah, b Sept. 29, 1776, who married Samuel Bowden. These two fam- 
ilies lived together for many years in the same house in Virginia and 
Maryland, and the two families moved to Ohio at about the same time. 
As a result two intermarriages took place. Wm. McFarland married 
Catherine Bowden and John Bowden married Mary McFarland. Sus- 
annah Main Bowden died at Hermon, 111., June 9, 1844. 

Andrew Schlosser. 

Three of Robert McFarland's sons married sisters, daughters of 
Andrew Schlosser. We give these items concerning their family: 
Andrew Schlosser, of German descent, was born in Maryland, prob- 
ably Frederick Co., July 3, 1785; moved to Richland Co., O., 1825; he 
died in Richland Co., O., Nov. 11, 1854; his wife, Catherine Poffen- 
barger, was born Jan. 11, 1786. She was stricken with apoplexy in 
May, 1844, which totally paralyzed the entire left side of her body. 
She lived in this condition until May 4, 1858. Her youngest daughter, 
Mrs. Rebecca Stull, and four of her grandchildren have died of apop- 
lexy. So far as we know there have been no deaths from apoplexy in 
any branch of Robert McFarland's family, except in those connected 
with the daughters of Catherine Poffenbarger Schlosser. Andrew and 
Catherine Schlosser were members of the United Brethren church. 
"They were sincere and exemplary Christians, living what they pro- 
fessed, and dying in the Faith." 

"Character is not only a disclosure and confirmation of righteous- 
ness and immortality; it is also a revelation of the spirit and methods 
of God. There is no higher function which a human soul may take 
upon itself than this: to make men see and love God. In countless 
households there are women who are patiently, in sweet unconscious- 
ness of their saintly service, spelling the ways and mysteries of God 
in words so simple that he who runs may read. Year in and year out 
in these blessed homes God becomes real, near, and divinely compas- 
sionate through this silent revelation of character. Character is sal- 
vation, not only for ourselves, but for others. We are saved by the 
character of others because that character breeds character in us. 
There are many to whom God seems afar off: they do not doubt Him, 
but they cannot lay hold of him as a companion in the hour of need. 
To such natures it is a blessed providence when some human soul 
becomes a revealer of that Divine Helper who has not yet become 
a Divine Father. Human love becomes in this way the prelude to the 
Divine love. We hold fast to the wife or mother whom we love, we long 
to gain and keep her confidence, we do the things that please her, we 
harmonize our lives with her life out of pure love of her. Unconscious- 
ly we are conforming our lives to God's will, because we are shaping 
them after the pattern of one of God's holy ones. A beautiful human 
soul always suggests God as the shining in the still waters at night, 
makes us instantly aware that a star is above us. We do not need to 
look at it; we know it is there. Whoever has the supreme blessedness 
of living close to a beautiful human soul has a constant vision of God."

William McFarland, Farmer and Shoemaker, b Mch. 30, 1803, near 
Harper's Ferry, Va. Learned shoemaking with his father, d April 29, 
1879, m about 1825 in Maryland. 

Catherine Bowden, b Aug. 8, 1809, in Md., d Oct. 5, 1876 at Abingdon, 
111. Both buried at Hermon, 111. 

Catherine Bowden was a daughter of Samuel Bowden and Susan- 
nah Main, sister of Anna Main, wife of Robt. McFarland. She had a 
twin brother, George Washington Bowden, who married Jane Smith 
in Washington Co., Pa., and moved to Richland Co. about 1830. He 
returned to Washington Co., Pa., in 1839, and in the spring of 1841 
moved to Hermon, 111., going by boat from Wheeling, West Va., to 
Peoria, 111. He died at Hermon, 111., Mar. 9, 1875. He has a son, Geo. 
M. Bowden, living at Abingdon, 111. 

Shortly after the marriage of Wm. McFarland and Catherine 
Bowden, John Bowden and Mary McFarland were married and in 1828- 
1829 the two families moved to Washington, Richland Co., O., where 
John McFarland had preceded them by about 4 years. Wm. McFar- 
land lived on a farm in the northeast corner of Washington Twp., on 
the south side of the road opposite the farm his father purchased in 
1831. In 1840 he moved with his family to Knox Co., 111., and bought a 
farm about one mile from the village of Hermon. He remained there 
until 1870, when he moved to Abingdon to give his younger children 
the advantages of Hedding college. Both he and his wife were con- 
verted before their marriage. They joined the Methodist Episcopal 
church and continued active in church work undl death. After mov- 
ing to Illinois, Wm. McFarland was licensed as a local preacher. Mrs. 
McFarland was an invalid for many years preceding her death. Seven

John McFarland lived with his parents in various places in Virginia 
and Maryland until 1825, when he went to Richland Co., Ohio, with the 
family of Andrew Schlosser. Andrew Schlosser bought a farm in the 
northwest corner of Monroe twp. John McFarland bought land in 
Washington twp. just east of Washington Village. He settled on this 
farm soon after his marriage. Here all of his children were born. The 
drinking habits of many of the people endangered the morals of this 
new community, and John McFarland, with some others, led in a move- 
ment to organize a total abstinence society. On the evening of March 
29, 1827, a company of people gathered at the home of Samuel Smith, in 
Monroe twp., and organized the Washington and Monroe Temperance 
Society. They drew up a constitution pledging themselves to personal 
abstinence, and to use all of their influence to discourage the drinking 
of liquor at all social gatherings. John McFarland was one of the 26 
men who signed the constitution at the first meeting. The society met 
once a month and held regular meetings for over 30 years, and enrolled 
over 600 members. John McFarland bought a farm three miles north- 
west of Lexington, O., in 1866. After livingg here two years he bought 
a farm li/^ miles south of Bloominggrove, North Bloomfield Twp., Mor- 
row Co., and lived in that vicinity the rest of his life. He was con- 
verted at a camp-meeting in Frederick Co., Md., in 1819, and he and his 
wife continued in the Methodist Episcopal Church until death. He 
served as a class leader and steward for 65 years. He was the first of 
his family to embrace religion, but his father and several other mem- 
bers of the family soon afterward followed him into the church.

George McFarland came from Frederick Co., Md., to Richland Co., 
Ohio, in 1827, and after staying for one year returned to Md. for eight 
months. He then returned to Ohio and lived the remainder of his life 
in Monroe and Washington Twps. His first farm joined his father's 
farm on the east; about 1850 he bought a farm one-half mile east of 
that in Monroe Twp. After living on this farm for 35 years, he sold 
it to his son John, and purchased a small farm one-half mile north 
of Washington Village. Mr. and Mrs. McFarland were members of 
the Methodist Episcopal church at Washington until it disbanded. He 
and his father and his brother David, with others, led in the movement 
to establish the Wesleyan Methodist church about 1840. This was on 
account of their anti-slavery sentiment. When the present Congre- 
gational church at Washington was organized in 1869, George McFar- 
land and his son Andrew gave $2,200 of the $4,000 cost of the new 
church building. Eleven children.

John Bowden. 

John and Mary Bowden moved from Md. to Ohio about 1828, and 
settled on a farm 1 mile southwest of Washington Village, Richland 
Co. He did little farm work, but made shingles, split plastering lath 
and split quarry stone for building purposes. In 1843 he and his wife 
left the Methodist church with other members the family and joined 
the Wesleyan Methodists. About 1 year after the death of Mary Mc- 
Farland, he married Catherine Workman. In 1846-47 he moved to 
Mansfield. A few years later he moved to the farm near Washington 
Village, now owned by Joseph Osner McFarland, where he died Aug. 
31, 1872. He had several children by his second wife. To John Bow- 
den and Mary McFarland were born 4 daughters, dates of birth un- 


Stephen and Susannah Bowden lived for several years at Mans- 
field, O., and then moved to Michigan, where all trax^e of them has 
been lost. They had at least one daughter who married a photograph- 
er, and lived in Illinois, about 1895. At considerable expense and 
trouble, I either saw personally or wrote to every person who might 
possibly know something of the whereabouts of some member of this 
family, but with no success. 


Maria Bowden was Nathan Barnes' second wife. His first wife 
was Eliabeth McFarland, sister of Maria Bowden's mother. For a 
short time after his marriage to Maria Bowden, Nathan Barnes lived 
in Crestline, O., but soon returned to Indiana, where all trace of them 
has been lost. See "VIII. Elizabeth McFarland and Nathan Barnes." 


Peter Marks, b Aug. 27, 1828, in Ashland Co., O., was a twin bro- 
ther to Jacob Marks, husband of Rosanna McFarland. To Peter Marks 
and Melinda Bowden one daughter was born, who died in young wom- 
anhood. Her name was Susannah. Mr. and Mrs. Marks have also 
been dead for a great many years. Their home was in Richland Co. 


Catherine Bowden died in youth, aged 10 or 12 years.

1897, at Lawrence, Kansas. 

David McFarland moved to Ohio with his parents in the fall of 
1831. The History of Richland Co., O., states that he was one of the 
charter members of the Washington and Monroe Temperance society, 
organized March 29, 1827, and that he was present the night of the 
organization. He may have been visiting his brother John at that 
time, but if so, must soon have returned to Md. He was of larger 
stature and more vigirous constitution than any of his brothers, and, 
like his father, was 6 feet in height and weighed over 200 pounds. He 
cut all the timber on his own farm of 80 acres and then for many 
years cleared land for his neighbors, so that he had the reputation of 
having felled and cut up the trees on more acres of land than any 
other man in that part of the county. He owned several farms in 
Washington Twp., which he finally sold, and moved to Mansfield and 
engaged in buying and selling real estate. He died of overwork. 
Some years after his death, his wife went to Lawrence, Kansas, with 
her oldest son, Robert, and remained there until her death. David 
McFarland left the Methodist Episcopal church in 1843, and joined the 
Wesleyan Methodists.

1855-1857. In the Civil war he was orderly sergeant in Regt. 163 O. V. 
I. After reaching manhood he added the S. to his name and said it 
might stand for Schlosser. In 1879 he moved his family to Lawrence, 
Kansas. June 1, 1884, he was appointed superintendent of Oak Hill 
cemetery by Mayor Bowersock, to which position he gave 20 years of 
faithful service. He was a charter member of the Association of 
American Cemetery Superintendents. He inaugurated many reforms 
in cemetery management. He was a member of the Congregational

Isaac McFarland, b April 10, 1812, in Loudon Co., Va.; d April 26, 1869,

The Dalles, Ore. Both buried at The Dalles, Ore. 

Isaac McFarland came from Maryland to Ohio with his parents in 
fall of 1831, and until 1849 lived on a farm in Richland Co., O., near 
Mansfield. In 1849 he moved his family by wagon to Knox Co., 111., 
where his brother William had settled about 9 years previously. The 
family remained in Knox Co., 111., until the spring of 1852, when they 
crossed the plains and mountains by wagon, reaching Oregon City, 
Ore., in October of the same year. The party consisted of Isaac Mc- 
Farland and wife, his son Cornelius and his wife, six younger chil- 
dren, James Smith, brother of Jane Smith Bowden, Samuel Smith 
Bowden, son of G. W. Bowden, and James Lindsey, and George Henry 
Whitmond, sons of neighbors. Isaac McFarland financed the trip and 
furnished the horses and wagons. The young men, all of whom drove 
teams, in addition to their work on the journey, were to work for him 
for six months after their arrival and settlement in Oregon. His 
daughter, Semantha McFarland, and James Smith, died on the way 
and were both buried 10 miles east of Castle Rock, Colo. The family 
stayed at Oregon City, Ore., until spring of 1853, when they removed to 
Shoal Water Bay on the Pacific Coast. The next year, 1854, they set- 
tled at The Dalles, Ore., which was their permanent home, excepting 
3 years, 1862-1865, when they lived at Golden Dale, Wash. In 1855 
Isaac McFarland and his son Cornelius, built the third steamer that 
was ever built above the Cascades on the Columbia River. The 
owners were Isaac and Cornelius McFarland and F. G. Imans. This 
fast sailing steamer, "The Wasco," was launched in Aug., 1855, with 
Isaac McFarland as Captain and Cornelius McFarland as engineer, 
and carried passengers and freight between "The Cascades" and 
"The Dalles." The Indians often secreted themselves among the rocks 
along the shore and fired into the passing vessels, making the trips 
exceedingly dangerous. Capt. McaFrland and his son were noted for 
their good cheer, energy and fearlessness. The dangers and difficul- 
ties were so great that the charge for hauling a ton of freight from 
Portland to The Dalles was $80.00. 

Eliza Sirpless McFarland was a cousin of Harriet Sirpless, wife if 
Hiram McFarland. She was converted at 11 years of age and was a 
lifelong member of the Methodist Episcopal church. The first Meth- 
odist church in Wasco Co., was organized at her home at The Dalles 
in 1854. After the death of her husband, she continued to live at the 
old home at The Dalles and was always a leader in every good work 
until her death at the age of 86. 

Eleven children. The family records were burned in the fire which 
consumed the old home in 1891, so that exact dates for some of the 
children cannot be given.

Elizabeth McFarland, b Oct. 8, 1814, in Md. or Va.; moved to Ohio with 
her parents in fall of 1831; d in Indiana about 1850; m 1833-1834. 
Nathan Barnes, Farmer. 

Nathan Barnes and family lived on a farm in Richland Co., O., 
until the fall of 1845, when they moved to a farm near Mexico, Miami 
Co., Ind. Mrs. Barnes' cousin, Andrew Hamilton McFarland, son of 
William McFarland, lived on a farm IVz miles south of them at that 
time. They still lived on the same farm when A. H. McFarland moved 
to Logansort in 1851. One of the their children, a little girl, died there 
in 1847, and was buried at Mexico. They had at least 4 children, 
David, Anna, Robert and Semantha, and probably one or two more. 
Mrs. Barnes died in Indiana some time after 1852, and Nathan Barnes 
returned with his family to Richland Co., O., and married Maria Bow- 
den, niece of his first wife, and daughter of Mary McFarland and 
John Bowden. For a short time after his second marriage, he lived 
at Crestline, O. He afterward returned to Indiana, where all trace 
of the family has been lost. None of the other branches of the fam- 
ily in Indiana have ever known anything of the family since the sec- 
ond marriage. Diligent inquiry by letter and personal visitations, 
among those likely to know something of the family, failed to secure 
any results. There are many Barnes families in Indiana, and I wrote 
personally to quite a number of them, but none of them had ever 
heard of Nathan Barnes or his family. I met one man who said he 
knew a Nathan Barnes in Marshall Co. about 40 years ago, but knew 
nothing of his family. As Elizabeth McFarland Barnes had two bro- 
thers who moved to Indiana about the same time she did, whose fam- 
ilies have remained in the same neighborhood until the present time, 
it is not likely that there are any members of Nathan Barnes' family 
now living in that section of Indiana. Nathan Barnes and his family 
must have moved from that part of the state many years ago, or it 
may be that they are all deceased. If any one of you should ever 
learn anything definite concerning this family, I would be very glad 
to know of it.

Landers McFarland, died a young man, unmarried. The date of his 
birth is unknown, but must have occurred between the birth of Rob- 
ert and Nancy, 1779-1784, or between that of William and John, 1786- 
1790. He grew to manhood, but must have died before any of his 
nephews or nieces were old enough to remember him.

Berkeley Co., West Va.; d May 4, 1864, at home of John McFarland, 
son of Robt., at Washington, Richland Co., O.; buried at Washington 
Village; m 


The name of Fink was very common in Md., Va. and Pa., in the 
census of 1790. These families have multiplied greatly and some of 
them have very complete genealogies. I made some inquiry and 
search among them, but could not find any trace of any Fink who had 
married a McFarland, or was descended from any McFarland ancestor. 
All that is known of Nancy McFarland Fink is this: About 1859, word 
came to the family of Robert McFarland in Washington Twp., Rich- 
land Co., O., that she was destitute and helpless and had no family 
or relatives, but was entirely alone. John McFarland, son of Robert 
McFarland, went to Maryland and brought her home with him and 
she died at his house about 5 years later. The children of John 
McFarland, all of whom were grown at that time, never heard or 
knew anything of her family. 





William McFarland, b Aug. 12, 1786, in Va., probably in what is now 
Berkeley Co., West., Va.d Feb. 3, 1858, near Perrysburg, Miami Co.,

Elizabeth Kellar, b March 1, 1792, in Va.; d May 12, 1869, near Per- 
ryburg, Ind. Both buried in Mt. Hope cemetery, Logansport, Ind. 

For several years after his marriage, William McFarland owned 
and operated a woolen mill at Fredericktown, Md. In 1826, he moved 
with his family to a farm near Dayton, O., and in 1830 he moved to a 
farm in Green Co., 7 miles south of Xenia. In 1836 he moved to 
Indiana and settled on a farm near Perrysburg, where he remained 
until his death. Previous to 1840 lie was an exhorter and then a local 
preacher in the Methodist Episcopal church, but being a strong aboli- 
tionist and having pronounced convictions concerning secret societies, 
he withdrew from the Methodist Episcopal church and joined the 
Wesleyan Methodists. About 1840 he visited his brother Robert and 
his family in Richland Co., Ohio, and persuaded several of them to also 
leave the Methodist Episcopal church and join the Wesleyan Metho- 
dists. William McFarland's home was a center for the religious and 
church life of the community. His sons heartily endorsed his anti- 
slavery attitude, and his house was for many years a station of the 
"underground railway." Five Children. 

1. Catherine Ann, b Jan. 12, 1816; d June 8 (11) 1893; Alexander M.

The following will was written by Wm. McFarland in Ms own

as a model form for a will. 


I, Wiliam McFarland, in the state of Indiana, do make and pub- 
lish this, my will and testament, hereby revoking and making void all 
former wills by me at any time heretofore made. First: I direct 
that my body be decently interred, and that my funeral be conducted 
in a manner corresponding with my estate and situation in life, and 
as to such worldly estate as it has pleased God to intrust me with, I 
dispose of the same in the following manner, to-wit: 

I direct, first, that all my just debts and funeral expenses be paid 
as soon after my decease as possible, out of the first moneys that 
shall come to the hands of my executors from any portion of my 
estate, real or personal. I have given my son Martin one horse and 
one hundred and twenty acres of land, which I consider his full share 
of my estate. I have given my daughter Catherine one cow and one 
hundred acres of land, which I consider her full share of my estate. 


I have given my son Andrew one horse and 100 acres of land, which 
I consider his full share of my estate. I also bequeath to my son 
Uriah and my son Wesley, my farm that is the Southeast Quarter of 
Section 36, Township 29, Range 3 East. My son Uriah and my son 
Wesley are to till the farm, maintain my beloved wife out of the pro- 
ceeds arising from my said farm in a decent and comfortable manner, 
as long as she liveth, and after my beloved wife shall be dead, dispose 
of the said farm as it may suit them. I also bequeath to my son 
Uriah my sorrel mare. I also bequeath to my son Wesley my dunn 
mare. I also direct that part of my stock in trade be sold by public 
auction, that is, hogs, cattle, (with the exception of my brindle cow, 
I bequeath to my wife), sheep, mare and colt, and one horse, seventy- 
five bushels of wheat, oats, corn, wagons, bees, plows, harrows, fan- 
ning mills. I also bequeath to my beloved wife one-third of the pro- 
ceeds of the sale which arises out of the sale from my personal prop- 
erty above described; the balance of the remaining two-thirds, after 
all my just debts and funeral expenses are paid, I bequeath to my 
son Andrew, my son Uriah and my son Wesley, share and share alike. 
All my household goods and furniture I bequeath to mybeloved wife. 
And I hereby make and ordain Andrew H. McFarland and Uriah 
McFarland executors of this, my last will and testament, in witness 
whereof, I, William McFarland, the testator, have hereunto set my 
hand and seal this eighteenth day of August, in the year of our 
Lord Eighteen Hundred and Forty-seven.

John McFarland, Shoemaker, Farmer; b 1790 in Berkeley Co., Va.; 

d 1857 in Sheffield, Bureau Co., 111.; m 1814. 

Elizabeth Bailey, b 1787 in Va.; d Dec. 25, 1855, in Miami Co., Ind. 

For several years after marriage John McFarland lived at Buck- 
lestown, Berkeley Co., Va., and worked at shoemaking. For two years 
previous to his marriage he was a soldier in the war with England, 
taking part in the campaigns about Buffalo and Niagara Falls. The 
family remained at Bucklestown until 1831, when they moved about 5 
5 miles south of Xenia, O. His brother, Wm. McFarland, had moved to 
Ohio about 5 years before this and lived in the same neighborhood. 
His mother, Nancy McFarland, had made her home with him for sev- 
eral years and went to Ohio with him, and died there 1840-1841. Im- 
mediately after his mother's death, John McFarland moved his family 
to Miami Co., Ind., and bought a farm near Mexico. Nearly the entire 
time he lived in Indiana his home was a preaching point on a Metho- 
dist circuit. The first preacher was Rev. Mr. Eidson, grandfather of 
Lucy Deniston, who was the wife of John Bailey McFarland. After 
his wife's death in December, 1855, he made his home with his son 
William. When William moved to Sheffield, Bureau Co., 111., in the 
spring of 1856, he sold his farm and went with William, driving a one- 
horse spring wagon, while William drove two horses to a covered 
wagon. On the way he was robbed of all of the first cash payment on 
the farm by a man who had asked to ride with him. At Sheffield, 111., 
he made his home with William and went about from house to house 
making and mending shoes. About a year later, he received by mail 
at dusk, the last payment of $160 on his farm. Two men, Lemuel 
Johnson and Henry Hogcase, followed him from the postoffice and 
about a quarter of a mile from the village fell upon him, beating him 
severely about the head and robbing him of all the money. He never 
recovered from these injuries and died soon after. The two robbers 
were arrested that same night in a saloon at Sheffield. They were 
convicted, but broke from the jail at Princeton and were never re- 
captured. John McFarland was buried at Sheffield, but the grave was 
unmarked, and cannot now be identified. Mrs. McFarland was a 
faithful Christian woman and wielded a great influence in the pioneer 
church, both in Ohio and Indiana. Seven children

John B. McFarland moved to Ohio with his parents in 1831 and to 
Miami Co. with them about 1841. He was converted at a camp meeting 
in Green Co., O., in 1833 and was a member of the class at Sardis. 
Soon after going to Indiana he, with his father as bondsman, and three 
younger brothers as helpers, took a contract to clear and grade a part 
of the state road running from Peru, Miami Co., to Warsaw, Kosciusko 
Co. In 1849 he bought a farm near Bourbon in Marshall Co., built a 
log cabin and moved his family to it. He remained on the farm until 
his death in 1892, and his wife lived on it until her death in 1911. His 
house was also a pioneer preaching place and he was a class leader 
and Sunday school superintendent until a short time previous to his 
death. Five children, all living.

William McFarland began to teach school in young manhood in 
Indiana, and taught nearly every year until his death. In 1856 he 
moved to Illinois with his family. They stopped at the Sheffield 
Mills, at Sheffield, Bureau Co., 111., owned and operated by his father- 
in-law, Wm. H. Donaldson. He opened a grocery store in Sheffield, 
his wife keeping the store while he was teaching. Early in 1860 he 
sold the store and moved with an ox team to Atchison Co., Kansas, 
settling at Pardee, 10 miles west of Atchison. In 1862 he sent the 
family back to Sheffield, 111., and joined the army, enlisting in the 
13th Regt. Kansas Volunteers. He was orderly sergeant and was for 
5 months a prisoner. For a year after the war closed, he travelled 
with a stereopticon and lectured on astronomy. He then settled at 
Neponset and taught school and kept books until his death. For 
many years he corresponded for the Bureau Co. papers, and his ar- 
ticles signed "Wayside," were eagerly sought for by the reading pub- 


lie. He wrote a great many poems on subjects dear to the heart of 
the common people, and intended to have a few of them published in 
book form, but was overtaken by death before his purpose was com- 
pleted. Five children.

Mrs. E. J. Douglas, Chariton, Iowa. 

James McFarland was not born a deaf-mute, but became so as a 
result of a fall received when 4 years of age. His right hand was 
badly crippled. After his parents moved to Indiana, he was sent to 
the state school for deaf-mutes at Indianapolis, and graduated, receiv- 
ing a teacher's diploma. He was an expert basket maker and followed 
that trade all his life. He made his own splints and his baskets were 
so greatly prized that he was never able to supply the demand. For 
one year after marriage, lived with his father on the farm near Mex- 
ico, Ind. In 1856 he moved to Illinois and in a few weeks to Missouri. 
In 1859 he took up a homestead 3 miles south of Thayer, Union Co., 
Iowa; in 1875 he moved into Thayer, and in 1889 sold his property 
and he and his wife made their home with their daughter, Mrs. E. J. 
Douglass, at Maloy, Ringgold Co., Iowa, moving with Mrs. Douglass to 
Peoria in 1899. He was a member of the Congregational church. 

Five children, two dying in infancy.

A great many of the fifth generation of 320 are children and un- 
married young people. Nearly all of the sixth generation of 416 are 
young children and unmarried. Judging the future by the past, the 
year 1960 will see the sixth generation of 416 increased to over 700, 
and the seventh generation of 84 increased to about 1,200, with an 
eighth and ninth generation numbering several hundred more. A sec- 
ond edition published at that time would be interesting reading. 



(A paper read by Dr. Joseph McFarland at the McParland Family 
Reunion, held at Sherman Park, Mansfield, O., the first Thursday in 
August, 1905, and ordered published in the Family History.) 

Our Heavenly Father has wisely provided that the human race 
shall be composed of Families. The foundation of a family is one man 
and one woman so esteeming each other as to make all their interests 
one. By a divine impulse they feel that their happiness is contingent 
upon their personal relation to each other. Everything that is fine, 
noble, pure and strong, everything that is good and grand, everything 
that conserves the highest forms of human happiness, everything that 
is sweet and loving, and nearest to God because nearest to nature at 
her best, is involved in the love of a pure-minded woman, who cares 
enough for a man to give her life to him, and by living for him and 
for their children to occupy the most sacred trust in the most sacred 
gift of God to our Earth, a human home. There is nothing above, 
nothing equal to such love. Its blessedness is worth more than all the 
rest of life put together and multiplied many times. What of the man 
who treats lightly and carelessly such a character and spirit; who 
neglects to provide the necessites and comforts for the home, who al- 
lows time and familiarity to blunt the affections; who becomes care- 
less of those small but all powerful and sweet attentions which hallow 
and make beautiful the intimacy of kindred spirits. 

It is love that makes the outgoings of two hearts one. Each 
movement of the heart in either is taken up and shared by the other. 
No pleasure is separately enjoyed, no pain separately experienced. 
The same joys and the same endeavors engage both minds. They 
have a consciousness of belonging solely to each other. Together they 
will worthily endure the days of adversity so that when those days are 
past they will rejoice in having lived to help each other endure them. 

The inmost grace of the wife is the love of Submission. The in- 
most grace of the husband is perfect sacrificing love. The two are 
one and their union is sacred. Such a perfect union is attained only 
when their love for each other and their consequent union is hallowed 
by a higher love to God. 

True married life must have a common sympathy, a distinct one- 
ness of feeling and thought. The offer of true love is made and ac- 
cepted because something is seen in the character and personality of 
the other that compels admiration and incites a response. This com- 
munity and sympathy ought to be intellectual as well as emotional; 
in wedlock minds as well as bodies ought to be married. People who 
are to live and talk together for half a century ought to be able to 
think and talk about the same things. The unmarried should not en- 
tangle themselves with anyone of whose mental ability they will be 
ashamed, or whose best intellectual enjoyments they cannot relish or 
would not be invited to share. "How can two walk together unless 
they be agreed." 

"And if husband or wife in home's strong light discovers 
Such slight defects as failed to meet the blinded eyes of lovers. 
Why need we ask, who dreams without their thorns the roses. 
Or wonders that the truest steel the readiest spark discloses. 
For still in mutual sufference lies the secret of true living. 
Love scarce is love that never knows the sweetness of forgiving. 


The same care should be taken by the wife to retain the husband's 
heart that was used to gain it. The husband's attachment to the wife 
should grow deeper and deeper as the months go on. The more he 
learns about his wife the more he should see to admire and love. If 
they be wise and true, such will be the result. The courtship should 
not end with the marriage. Love keeps itself active by constant ex- 
pression in word and act. The beautiful attentions that were so pleas- 
ing before marriage should be remembered and shown after mar- 
riage. If the gifts cease to come, or come only with the asking; if the 
music dies out of the voice, then come dull, dark and heavy days. 
Married life needs to keep its tone and sweetness much of the manner 
and the spirit of the courting time, when the inmost grace was ex- 
pressed by acts of devotion. 

From a discussion in "The Golden Rule" of the question, "Are 
College Women Good Homemakers," we quote two replies: 

"College training is better than society training. In society wom- 
en acquire a taste for being out late at night, for dancing and flirting 
with other women's husbands, for spending evenings over bits of paste- 
board while household accounts run riot, for dropping tears over 
dressed-up children on the stage, while her own children are crying 
at home for their mother. Surely the girl that has had the earnest 
purpose, patience and perseverance necessary to pass creditably 
through a college course, will have formed habits of thinking and act- 
ing that will be most helpful to her in the care and strain of home 
making. Surely a mother whose mind has been led into the higher 
realms of thought, of science, literature and history, cannot but be 
better able to lead and train her little ones that God has given her, 
into the higher and better things of life, and best of all to teach them 
of God, whom to know aright is life Eternal." — Grace Livingston Hill. 

"Not if during the college course Madam becomes Adam, not if 
good health has been sacrificed, not if the student ceases to be a lady 
and cannot quite be a gentleman, not unless her mother has brought 
up a daughter to match some other mother's son. Not If she is swept 
away by the craze about the new woman, and thinks that a woman 
married is a woman marred. Not if the woman has been spoiled 
while the student has not become noticeable. Not if she forgets that 
she is first of all woman; not if she thinks that because she is edu- 
cated she ought to sing bass; not if she is educated away from her 
mother's piety; not if the she can preside over an academy better 
than over a home. On the other hand, Yes, if with both hands she 
takes hold of the idea of companionship in marriage and educates 
herself to have similar tastes, views and beliefs with the college 
friends of her brothers. Yes, if she holds that good housekeeping is 
next to Virtue. Yes, if in college she has learned to love and keep 
quiet hours, and continues them, giving to her home a religious aro- 
ma." — Mrs. James Hill. 

All are willing to circumscribe the privileges and duties of the 
wife and mother. What liberty or license shall be granted to the hus- 
band and father that should not be equally accorded to the Queen of 
the home. If he may attend places of amusement without her, or with 
other men's wives and daughters, if he may absent himself from the 
home except on legitimate business, if he may spend late hours away 
without her knowing where, why should not the wife have the same 
privilege. There is no place where it is right and proper for the hus- 
band to go but that the wife may accompany him without the least 
tainting of character or reputation. The baby has as lawful a right to 
cry for the father as for the mother. The man who is the father of 
the baby is as responsible for its care and comfort as is the woman 
who is its mother. 

By family affection we understand not only the mutual affections 
of the individual members for each other, but the common affection 


of the united members of the family as a whole for this family, this 
house, which in its wider sense includes both those more nearly and 
more distantly related, and those moral principles for which the fam- 
ily stands. It is a common affection for that home with all its feautres 
of intimacy and comfort, for that particular mode and form of life, 
for those home manners and customs, for those family gatherings and 
family festivities which in Christian families find their yearly return- 
ing climax in Christmas, the festival of childhood, and no less the 
festival of the aged, who love it the more the older they grow, the 
festival whose image lives in memory long after its lights are gone 
out. Home does not cease to be home because its characteristics are 
not ideal. Home is the parental presence and neither unworthiness 
nor ungodliness nor open evil can destroy its rights or abrogate its 
responsibilities. Home has its relations and responsibilities still, even 
when pain and grief are the sum of them. The power of the family 
tie prompts pity and sympathy and the investment of influence to heal 
the wound and restore the individual. 

There cannot be found in all the world the like of parental love. 
The affection of friends may be influenced by some selfish motive, that 
of children by some expectation in the future, but the love of the par- 
ent for the child is untainted by gain or selfishness. Sometimes justice 
is hardly done to the depth of the father's affection, probably because 
the ministrations of the mother to the immediate necessities of the 
children are many, while the fathers are so few. But this is because 
the home and the immediate presence of the children is the mother's 
allotted sphere of activities, while the father's duties lie in the out- 
side world where he wages a warfare with the various hardships of 
life. The fact that he is striving for the welfare of his wife and chil- 
dren is that which stimulates him in his hard labor. There is no sac- 
rifice that he will not endure for the good of his dear ones. The hap- 
piest moments of his life are those when he returns after a day of 
toil and anxiety to his home where he is surrounded by those who have 
anxiously awaited his return. But more especially is parental affec- 
tion exhibited by the mother love. Is there anything that can be con- 
ceived of as more beautiful. Both language and art have failed to set 
forth its power and beauty. It shrinks not where man cowers, it grows 
strong where man faints; over the wastes of worldly fortune it sends 
a radiance of quenchless fidelity like the shining of a star in the hea- 
vens. All things are affected by its vital heat. Trouble may come in 
a thousand forms. Storms may beat on every side, but firm as the un- 
shaken rock it rears itself amid the tempest and hurls back the angry 
waves. The mother is the truest earthly friend, the world may revile, 
but she loves on. Let those who have mothers appreciate them. God 
pity those who have them not. 

The home is the training place for good husbands and good wives, 
for good fathers and mothers of future generations. As a rule it is 
safe to say that a good son makes a good husband and father, and a 
good daughter makes a good wife and mother. The home whose united 
head, with a full consciousness of their responsibility is not seriously 
considering the fitting of the children for the most happy and useful 
relations of social life, fails to realize the highest commission of God 
to his most favored subjects. He who looks lightly on the love of 
child to parent, or of brother to brother, or of husband and wife, and 
counsels each one to consider and live only for self, would rob man- 
kind of the very thing that raises man above the beasts that perish, 
and seeks to lower him again to the likeness of the flesh that of the 
flesh he may reap corruption. 

The family training is the foundation of good citizenship. Every 
noble principle should begin in the home. Joseph Cook says that the 
strength of a nation is in proportion to the number of its virtuous fam- 
iliee. It is the family relation that gives a true philanthropic feeling 


to its members. The one in whom the family affections have been 
awakened is the one who will have a heart most open to the passion 
for humanity. It is useless to urge a person to love all mankind if he 
has never loved an individual and knows what love is only by report. 
Love and affection for the ones nearest us will diffuse its reaction to 
all mankind. The well ordered family is the foundation of good so- 
ciety. I mean by that that where industry, truth, honesty and virtue 
have been the spirit and practice of the home, these same desirable 
principles will be strong in the individual members in their public 
life, and with but few exceptions will dominate the lives of the chil- 
dren when they are grown. Thus the human race rises or falls with 
the Family, and a true home is God's best gift to man. 

Family Comparisons. — It is a matter of interest to know how our 
family compares with other families in growth and other items. Hav- 
ing at hand the Cantwell family record, I can easily compare the two. 
The comparison is the more striking because the two families began 
in the United States at about the same time, and in the same state. 
West Virginia, and came to Ohio and the west only a few years apart, 
and the greater part of both families lived for many years near Mans- 
field, Ohio. Thus the conditions of life were about the same for both 

The given names were the same, Wm. McFarland and Nancy Kil- 
gore and Wm. Cantwell and Nancy Williams. 

The Cantwell family increased a little faster than the McFarland. 
Wm. McFarland was married in 1777, Wm. Cantwell in 1797, so the 
McFarlands are one generation the older. Wm. Cantwell in 5 gener- 
ations has 870 descendants; Wm. McFarland in 6 generations has 978 
descendants; Wm. Cantwell has 690 living descendants; Wm. McFar- 
land has 734 living descendants. 

The Cantwell family has the most boys, 445, or 51% are boys. Of 
the 978 McFarland descendants, 461, or 47% are boys, and 517 are girls. 

The McFarland name greatly exceeds the Cantwell name. There 
are now living 69 men and 37 boys by the name of McFarland. There 
are only 7 men and 5 boys by the name of Cantwell. 

The 14 Cantwell Fathers had 64 children, or 41/2 each. There 
were 51 men named McFarland who married. They had 305 children, 
or an average of 6 each. 

The 14 mothers whose maiden name was Cantwell, had 92 chil- 
dren, 6V2 each. The 55 mothers whose maiden name was McFarland 
had 256 children, 4.6 each. 

In the Cantwell family 116 or 14% died under 10 years of age. In 
the McFarland family 123 or 12^^% died under 10 years of age. 

The two families are about equally scattered, living in 30 states 
west of the Alleghenies. In many places there are several members 
of both families. 

There has been but one intermarriage between the two families, 
and but one case where members of each family married into the 
same outside family. 



In order to save space and to secure the greatest possible conven- 
ience of reference this outline and index has been made as simple and 
brief as possible by the entire omission of the seventh generation of 
84 children, and by the omission of the names of all who died in in- 
fancy, and of many others who left no descendants.
