Carroll Raymer 1868-1910 married 1889, Alice Farris 1874-1952, they had 9 children, all born in Buffalo Valley Putnam County TN.

One of them named Phelix S. Raymer, born 1899. Might have gone by the name first Grady, may have gone to KS.

Most of the children left the area as soon as they were able.

I would appreciate any information about this family. I will share what I have, but it is not much.

Parents for the father, Carroll Raymer?

Alice Farris was a sister to my grgrandmother Margaret Ann Farris 1861-1944.

Thank you

Uncle Carroll died in Nov 1910 and is an unmarked grave some where in Buffalo Valley TN.
Aunt Alice (Annice) named for her grandmother, Aunt Alice brought her family and came to Cookeville. The youngest was not born until February 1911, of course this is what has been told as family tradition.

As soon as she was able she went to work, Aunt Alice married John Payne 1915-1916. She drove a car, worked in a factory, called square dances, we lived next door on the Buffalo Valley Road when I was a little girl. I used to stay with her after school.

Some of the family is buried here in the Cookeville City Cemetery, most of them lived away from Cookeville.

Thank you and have a good day.
