From Chalkley’s Augusta County Records:
- Vol. 1 - MARCH 17, 1767. - (467) Margaret and Wm. Farris, orphans of James Farris, to be bound out. (Note: William Farris, son of James Farris would have been born no earlier than 1746 to have been "bound out". Since thie William was born in 1748, he appears to be a likely (but not proven) candidate for the son of James Farris. More research necessary).
