Notes on Edgar:
*RESIDENCE: To Iowa in 1884
*DEATH: Edgar was kicked by a horse, ruptured, died. Had a sister, Clara and brothers John, Jacob (6 School Street Haverhill, MA) and Charles (5 School Street Haverhill, MA)
*POSSIBILITIES: From an email I received 10/16/03 from Marvin: I think I've found the father of my great-grandfather Edgar Leslie Farrington who married Emma Jane Harmon. John Farrington b. 1827, New Hampshire, father and mother also born N.H., living 1880 in Claremont, Sullivan, N.H. His sons John and Charles living at home, and older Jacob and Clara not at home, all fit the names my grandmother told me of her uncles and aunt and the N.H. birthplace we know from other records; although there are just a few other Farringtons, none of them come close to fitting. (Jacob and Clara seem to have left home and are living and working in Mass.) The oddity is that I can't find Edgar listed anywhere, not even as Edward. So I need to see the original listings for this and earlier years! Hope to have more info soon. Marvin
*We're looking for John Farrington in Claremont, Sullivan, New Hampshire, born 1827 in N.H., parents born N.H. too. Children include Charles, age 5, and John, age 11, and possibly more? His wife's name is currently unknown to me. And his two older children I found working and living with Horace W. Rollins in Lawrence, Essex, Mass. They are Jacob Farrington, age 15, and Clara J. Farrington, age 19. Who Mr. Rollins is and why they are there I have no idea.

Notes on Emma:
*BIRTH: Listed as a child of Alma Harmon, deceased, in probate packet of Grandmother, Huldah Bassett of Cache County, Utah. She died 12 Oct 1886.
*She was 21 years old and residing at Estherville, Emmet, Iowa at the time her sister wrote a letter to the probate court in 1891.
*BIRTH: Census in 1880 gives her birthplace as Iowa.
*BIRTH: Her death record gives her place of birth as Glenwood, Iowa.
*BIRTH: Family records have had Plattsmouth,Cass,Nebraska until I changed it to Glenwood, Iowa on my data base to more clearly represent all the information I am finding; i.e. her death and census records, etc. After corresponding with Marvin Moore, a descendant of Emma's, and looking closely at a map, I am returning to the Plattsmouth birthplace as the family has had it until PROVEN otherwise. Plattsmouth is just across the Iowa/Nebraska border from Glenwood, Iowa.
*DEATH: Obit: Idaho Falls Daily Post Friday May 8, 1925
*Mrs. Frank Leary
*Mrs. Frank Leary, 55 years of age passed away in a local hospital on Thursday, May 7. The Leary family moved to Idaho Falls two years ago from Shelton. Mrs. Leary is survived by her husband, a son, Irvine, and a daughter of Denver, Colorado. The funeral will be held Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Christian church with Rev. Maring officiating.

Notes on Clara:
*Possibilities: (from Marvin) From some old postcards, I see that my grandmother Clara had a cousin Gladys Bennett in Glenwood {Mills Co, Iowa} and an aunt Susanna Anthony who had granddaughters Mabel Bennett and Bess(ie) Anthony. {from either Glenwood or Estherville, Iowa}
