MARY VIRGINIA FARROW
Many interesting facts about one's ancestors can be found when researching your family.
During the research of my great-grandmother, Mary Virginia Farrow, I discovered that she was left an orphan. My Mother did not know this about her grandmother. I also found out that
Mary never got to see her father because he died before she was born.
Mary Virginia Farrow was born on May 4, 1864. Her parents were Jesse Farrow and Eliza Richardson Farrow. Her father was in the Civil War but did not survive the armed conflict for he
died in February, 1864, just about three months before she was born.
I discovered, during my research that after her father died, her mother turned her over to the courts when she was about one year old because she could not care for her.
Mary lived in the Samuel Hall home for about six years then she went to the Richard Slatton home for about the next ten years. She married her husband, Wiley Denton, in 1882. They
were married for sixty years and had three girls and two boys born to this union.
This was written by Pam Ward, a member of the Historical Society, who is the great granddaughter of Mary Virginia. If anyone has info on any of these people, please contact Pam
through the Historical Society. Any help would be most appreciated.
