Biography of Isaac B. Farrar
Franklin County, NY Biographies





Isaac B. Farrar, born at Fairfax, Vt., August 10, 1802, came to Malone in 1839, and removed to Burke a few years later, where he continued to reside until 1884, when he retired from his life long work as a farmer, and returned to Malone to pass his remaining years. Mr. Farrar was of upright life and ardent convictions, an abolitionist before the war, and so intensely patriotic that he enlisted, in the Union army when he had passed the age of sixty years. Careful and prudent, he accumulated property to the amount of perhaps fifteen thousand dollars, and with the exception of legacies of five hundred dollars each to churches in Burke and Bellmont and in Malone, and a few personal remembrances, bequeathed it all as a trust fund to establish and endow the Farrar Home in Malone for Deserving Old Ladies. He died December 16, 1899.
