One of their children, George Washington, was born in Harrison County, TX and this is where they were living when they migrated from Texas to Scott Co, Arkansas. I have not found them listed on the Texas census or any Other records in Texas.

They had a son, William, listed in 1860 Scott Co., census and lived next to Reuben TOMLINSON in Revielle Twp. What happened to David and William?

FARMER, WILSON, EASTERS, COLE, RILEY: I believe my FARMER ancestor was the Finis E. FARMER, b. 1814 MO listed in the 1850 Scott Co. census, Hickman Twp. He supposedly md Rebecca WILSON, b. 1814 IN and had sons, John b. 1835, Jim, & twins Crittenden and Littleton FARMER b. 1851 & possibly others. The parents, Finis & Rebecca FARMER, both died sometime bet. 1851 & 1860, leaving orphans, because the children were "farmed out" in the 1860 census. Crittendon FARMER showed up in the S.S. EASTERS household in 1860. I am thinking they may be relatives somehow? I know there were connections with the WILSON, COLE, EASTERS & possibly RILEY families. We haven't found Littleton FARMER in the 1860 census. The WILSON and COLE FAMILIES and FARMER children ended up in Yell Co. in later census records. I do not know the parents of Finis FARMER or of his wife Rebecca WILSON. I am especially interested in hearing from WILSON descendants if you recognize these given names of WILSONS: Robert b. 1824 IN; Abram b. 1821 IN; George b. 1815 GA or TN; Nelly b. 1791 or 1783 NC; Elizabeth b. 1803 VA.
