Rupert Farnham Thompson It would only be proper that I dedicate the Eugenia (Boon) and Horace Farnham section to my second cousin once removed, Rupert Farnham Thomspson. Rupert and my father were 2nd cousins while his mother and my grandmother were 1st cousins.

He has done more to promote and preserve our Boon - Farnham - Thompson and other collaternal lineages of anyone that I know of. Back in the early 1970's I was blessed to have gotten to know him a bit. Anyone who has researched the Boon History at all is familiar with the book, Thomas Boon: Immigrant died 1723, Island of Wight Co., Virgina and 1000 of his Deccendants and Boon Genealogy 1984. Rupert gave me the honor of giving me the second copy of the first book. He also put these books in libraries all across the United States. The second one is compiled of many 1880 census records, and other records sorted by states.

Rupert lived in California and wrote me many letters in Ontario, Canada, plus a couple of phone calls. He was also very instumental in helping to plan and organize the Farnham reunions each year and seeing that the family newsletters were done. He also made sure that I got a copy. From his correspondnece, I was blessed to get to know and correspond with many of Eugenia's children and grandchildren in the 1970's. They are all a beautiful bunch and I'm proud to call cousins.

Rudy, as he was known by his family and friends, died January 26, 1994 in Los Angeles, California. He was 73. Thank you for doing th legwork and for giving us a framework on which to build and further extend this genealogy.


Mary Eugenia 'Jennie' (Boon) Farnham (1863-1947)


Mary Eugenia, known as Jennie, was born May 30, 1862 in Texkarkana, Miller Co., Arkansas, near the end of the civil war. While only 7 months old, her father, Kinchin Augustus 'K. A.' Boon would be kilked by jayhawkers. Her 'fatherly advice and support' would come from her older brothers. Her childhood was a constant battle just to survive as her 'strong pioneer' mother, who had been raised and tended to be slaves as a child in a well-to-do home, learned to cope on her own and to see that her children had the necessitites of life. I'm sure that Jennie went with her mother on many occassions to pick cotton even as a very small child.

Jennie can be found with her mother and siblings on the 1870 Kaufman Co., Texas census. She is listed as Mary E, age 7.

Horace James Farnham (1851-1935)

Farnham Family

Horace James Farnham was born April 11, 1851 in Warren Co., Pennsylvania. He was the son of Edmond Farnham and Eliza Crandall. His father was an Englishman who had left England as a young man and went to Holland where he had married a Dutch girl. He then brought her to America and settled in Connecticut where he became a logger. His parents died when Horace was quite young. The Farnham children were taken in by various family members or friends. Horace was taken in by a Quaker family.

As a young man, he worked in the oil fields of Pennsylvania and as a mate abroad a boat in Lake Erie. Then one day, while fooling around, he and friends, Joe Dawson and William M. Holmes, decided to spit on a cow chip, throw it in the air, and agreed that if it came up wet they would go to Texas to hunt buffalo and if it it came up dry they would go elsewhere. The chip landed with the wet side up, and as a result these close friends would soon find themselves hunting buffalo in the Texas panhandle.

With Wichita Falls as a base, they hunted buffalo in Hardman and Wilbarger Counties; and in the Cherokee Nation - Indian Territory (what is today Oklahoma). In those days, Wichita Falls was just a wide place in the road, with one store in the whole town. And Indian Territory was a land, not only of buffalo, but of the Cherokee, Kiowa and ten Comanche Tribes - sometimes friendly, but often times NOT! The Indians resented the white man's wholesale slaughter of buffalo just for hide, leaving the meat for waste.

In some of the Farnham newsletters, we have this narration written by Horace himself:

"In September, 1877, W. R. McCarty and W. E. Perciville and myself started from Denison, Texas on a buffalo hunt. On October 5, we camped on Paradise Creek in what is now Wilbarger County, after we had visited the Brown Ranch on Beaver Creek. We saw our first buffalo and crossed Pease River at Anetelope Springs. I killed my first buffalo that day. We crossed over REd River and went to a buffalo camp in the Indian Territory. . . Due to the sickness of one of the party, they returned to their home at Denison."

"In February 1878, I was back on Beaver Creek buffalo hunting. It was then I got acquainted with Alex Dawson and W. M. Holmes, who had bought a herd of hogs up from Clay county and were herding them on Beaver Creek. I bought a third interest in Dawson and Holmes' hogs and Dawson and I went down the mouth of Pease River and started to farm. Holmes ws left to look after the hogs. I plowed and Dawson commenced work on a dugout. . .We made a little corn and some millet and the first winter I put in my time hunting deer and antelope and poisoning wolves and shunks."

"I was living at Antelope Springs in the dugout that Dawson and I built, when Wilbarger county was organized. Settlers began to arrive as early as 1879 and 1880. . . "

It is here in Wilbarger County, Texas in 1880 that we find Horace, listed as H. J. Farnham, age 29. It was here that he would meet Jenny and they would be married April 4, 1882 in Vernon.


Texas Beginnings

After their marriage, the newlyweds homesteaded 160 acres at Antelope Springs near the Pease River. After the railroad came in, Horace and Jennied moved to Wichita Falls where Horace used his team and wagon working in a lumber yard, unloading lumber from freight cars. With the railroad, this was a new town springing up. Most of the land had been file don by this time and with lumber being shipped in, better homes were built - some were 'shed' rooms with a one slant roof; but others had regular hip roofs.

After two years at Wichita Falls, Horace and Jennie moved back to the dugout at Antelope Springs. Then they moved further west up Pease River on the Martin Kempf ranch and were located closer to Quannah, Texas. It was about this time that Horace ran for and was elected commissioner of Precint 1 in Hardeman and attached counties. He ran for Tax Assessor in September 1886 and was elected for his popularity with the 'the boys' and the promise of a barrel of apples for the school children.

Later Horace rented the Smith place, about one section on the east side of Foard County, Texas, 1/4 miles south of the Pease River; approximately the present site of Rayland, or east of the present town of Rayland. This was 18 miles west of Doans store, built on the Red River where the Texas Longhorn herds trailed across the river. Here Horace farmed wheat, corn and oats and ran a herd of East Texas cattle.

In the late summer or early fall of 1890, this couple gathered up their little ones and their belongings and moved to a two room adobe house in Silverton, Texas. This was before Briscoe County was orgnaized, and later when the residents gathered to organize the county, it was the Farnham home that they met. H. J. was elected the first treasurer of the newly-formed county. The family lived in Silverton for tweleve years and it was during their first year there that their son, Tom Watkins was born. In 1893, grasshoppers ate every crop except the pumpkins, and the family lived on pumpkins that whole winter - also fed the stock with pumpkins. The following fall, on October 9, 1849, another son, Jack McCarty was born and he was followed in 1897 by Irene Imogene and in 1900 by Gertrude Claudia.

The Farnahams can be found on the 1900 Briscoe County, Texas Census. He is shown to be 49 and she is shown to be 37. They are shown with eight children between the ages of 7 months and 16.

New Mexico - A New Life

In June 1902, the Farnhams pulled up stakes and moved to Bethel, Roosevelt Co., New Mexico, near Portales. They drove through with 30 head of horses and 300 head of cattle, recruited from young calves that couldn't keep up with the herds on cattle drives, and otherwise would have been slaughtered. The baby of the family, Georgia Alice, would be born about a year after the move to New Mexico.

In 1910, we find the family on the Roosevelt County, New Mexico Census, living outside of Portales. Horace is shown to be 59 and is a diary farmer while Mary E. is shown to be 47. They have 7 children listed with them and Jennie's nephew, Fred H. Boon, the s/o Sam H. Boon.

California - Starting Over and Life's End

The Farnhams remained in New Mexico until a post war depression hit in 1922, and the bottom fell out of the beef market. So in December of that year, Jenny loaded up the old family car and headed west for California. She took Irene, Jack and his wife and their little son, along with her.

They came into Southern California, and when they arrived in Corona, they found free camping and free water at the public park. The local fruit growers wanted people to help with the fruit, and were encouraging people to stay in the town. So now we have another pioneer mother trying to provide for her family. This time she is picking fruit in California instead of cotton in Texas.

A year later in December of 1923, Horace headed west along with Maude and her husband, Harley Thompson and their family. They met Jenny and the others in Corona and lived there four or five months before moving up to Porterville.

Now you must remember in 1922 and 1923, Horace and Jenny were not young by stanadards at that time. In 1922, Jenny was 59 years old and Horace was 71. The Farnhams lived the remainder of their lives there in Porterville and would look forward to the children and grandchildren and their visits.

Horace J. and Mary E. are listed alone on the 1930 Tulare County, California census, living in Porterville. He is 79 and occupation is listed as poultry farmer.

Horace James Farnham died there in Porterville on February 13, 1935 at the age of 83. Eugenia would live 12 more years - passing away on March 13, 1947. When she died, she had 35 grandhchildren and 43 great grandchildren.
