  • Notes 
    • Apparently, after his death, his oldest three children selected or had appointed John Faver Sr as guardian. Presumably they may have lived with him. The younger three by 1841 were in Mississippi and had a guardian appointed there. That means that they must have moved there, maybe with their mother.
