Daniel Farrar, M. D., was born in Troy and was the sixth physician to locate in the town. He graduated from the Harvard Medical School in the spring of 1862. He was appointed Assistant Surgeon of the Third New Hampshire Regiment, Ang. 13, 1862, and arrived at the regiment about the middle of September, 1862. His jjosition at this time was an anomalous one, as in his appointment a vacancy was anticipated in the medical staff and soon after occurred. He began his duties at once and performed them well. In the spring of 1868, the regiment was scattered, two companies being at Hilton Head, S. C, seven companies were at Pickney Island and one company at Pope's.

Dr. Farrar remained \vith the two companies at Hilton Head, on April 15, 1863, after the regiment had gone to Edisto Island, Dr. Farrar was ordered to special duty, taking charge of the sick at the outposts of Hilton Head (Seabrook, Fort Mitchel, Pope's, Jenkin's Island and Spanish Wells), with headquarters at Pope's. He had scarcely entered upon these duties when he was relieved by an order relieving everybody in the brigade of which the Third New Hampshire was a part.

He rejoined the regiment at Edisto River, and not being in good health very soon after sent in his resignation, Which was not accepted. He repeated the act at once and was honorabh discharged, on surgeon's certificate of disability, at Botany Bay Island, on May 4, 1863. Upon his return home he commenced practice here. Not being Physically strong he could not endure the rides over this hilly country, and he gave up his practice sometime in 1865, and afterwards removed to Leominster, Mass., where he continued in practice till his death, June 3, 1875.

Bartenders and Slaoons, Indiana.

Here is a list of about 83 Bartenders  and 71 Saloons, there is no information on the names.  This list is to help find a ancestor and learn where he or she was  at this time in history.  The City Evansville, Indiana, the year 1888.

A note about the Saloons of Evansville and there were many and I bet you get a picture of what they may look like but you would be wrong. The saloon as we know them wasn't the only saloons in town.  There were saloons in Boarding Houses, Billiard Rooms or Halls and Groceries Stores. One could get a bottle of beer or a glass of wine about any place in town.

The saloon list which there are three, were copied from the City Directory and you may not be able to enlarge them enough to read. In this case you may copy them so you can enlarge  them your self.  No need to ask its ok.  In fact all the information an pictures at this web site are free to any one to copy.

Marcellus Jerome Clark ( Sue Mundy.)

This is not his whole story by a long shot.  His story was to long to put here.  Those who would like to learn more about his live and execution I will leave a title and link at the end of this story.

Captain George Swope, of the Fifth Indiana Cavalry, and provost marshal had charge of the execution.  Mundy was asked if he had anything to say, to make it known. He directed his remarks to his spiritual advisor in a very low voice, he said : " I am a regular Confederate soldier, and have served in the Confederate army for four years. I fought under General Buckner at Port Donalson, and belonged to General Morgan's command when he entered Kentucky. I have assisted and taken many prisoners and have always treated them kindly. I was wounded at Cynthiana and cut off from my command. I have been in Kentucky ever since;

I could prove that I am a regular Confederate soldier, and I hope in, and die for, the Confederate cause." A white cap was placed over his face and at the word three the prop was pulled from under the trap. The fall was not more than three feet and it did not break his neck; he was choked to death. his sufferings were of short duration. Thus ended the career of the notorious Sue Mundy. He was captured on Sunday, taken to Louisville on Monday, tried on Tuesday and executed on Wednesday, all of the same week.

Sue Mundy was nearly six feet tall, straight and remarkably well built, and would weigh about one hundred and sixty pounds. His complexion was fair ; he had long dark hair which touched his shoulders, he had a beautifully shaped mouth, and in short was a handsome man. His whole demeanor was firm, polite, quiet and unassuming; he bore the air of a man of culture and gentlemanly refinement.

He said he would have been twenty-one years of age in the following August and would die before he reached his manhood, and yet, had been a man to his country. He wore a black velvet cap, a black or dark blue jacket with one row of Kentucky State buttons, a pair of dark cassimere pants and a pair of old boots, cut down in imitation of a pair of shoes.

History of the Limerick Home, South Carolina

In 1707 the Lords Proprietors permitted the Cypress Barony to be alienated and divided into smaller tracts ; there upon it was parceled out, 5000 acres to Dominick Arthur, and 3500 acres to both John Gough and Michael Mahon, who took out new grants for their portions. Michael Mahon was a
native of Limerick, Ireland, as was also Dominick Arthur, and the name of Limerick became attached to the part of their shares subsequently sold to Daniel Huger, son of the first Huger emigrant, who made Limerick his place of residence.

With the sale and partition of the Cypress Barony, and its plantation equipment, the family of Landgrave Thomas Colleton lost all touch with the province. In later years all the part of the Cypress Barony allotted to Michael Mahon and John Gough, with 7341/2 acres off the Arthur portion, had become the property of members of the Ball family.

It is impossible to relate all of the notable achievements of the family of Hugers. Daniel Huger the third, to whom Limerick had been devised by his father, conveyed it on March 12th, 1764, to Elias Ball of St. John's Parish, Berkley County, as containing 45641/2 acres. It continued to be owned by the Ball family for over a century and a quarter, not passing from their hands until after 1890.

There stands to-day on Limerick, the old plantation dwelling which has attained the venerable age of two hundred and odd years. Though slightly run down at the heels, it is certainly a quaint and curious old-fashioned affair that has stood the acid test of years. A glimpse of the swamp around the head waters of the Cooper are seen in the background of the illustration. This house is fairly typical of the dwellings of that day and time in those isolated regions, as is the magnificent avenue of oaks which marked the approach to most of these plantation residences.

Elias Ball, of Limerick, was held in high esteem by his brother parishioners, who erected a mural tablet to his memory in Strawberry Chapel, an honor bestowed on no other layman of that parish. He was strong-willed, kind-hearted, clearheaded, resolute, generous and affectionate. On his plantation his word was law, although he was kind to his slaves. As an illustration of his undisputed sway the following anecdote is told :

One of the overseers on the plantation was to be married, the feast was ready, the company had assembled, minister and groom were on hand ; but the bride at the last minute refused to be married at all. She would listen to neither coaxing, threats nor arguments. Mas 'Lias fortunately happened to be on the plantation ; to him a little negro boy was sent. "Mas 'Lias, Mis' Katie say she wun't married." "Tell Miss Katie I say she 'must married.' " Back sped the messenger in hot haste mth the tidings and she was.

Isaac Ball, second son of John Ball, Sr., came into possession of Limerick at the death of his uncle a few months after (1810). He married his cousin, Eliza Catherine PoyasThey settled at Limerick and lived a happy useful life. Having no children they adopted a little nephew of Mrs. Ball's.

Limerick passed to William James Ball, whose wife, Julia Cart, had charm of manner equal to her beauty of face. After her death in 1858, near the close of the Civil War, he married his cousin, Mary Huger Gibbes, and lived at Limerick, where he died in 1891.
