20. REV. LARKIN FARLEY3 JOHNSTON (GEORGE GREGORY ("G.G." OR "GREG")2, LEWIS1) (#618) was born in Humphreys County, Tennessee on August 17, 1824. LARKIN died in 1897, in Randolph County, Arkansas, at 72 years of age. His body was interred in Randolph County, Arkansas, Siloam Cemetery.

He married at least three times. He married TYRA MEEK in Tennessee, about 1844. (TYRA MEEK is #619.) TYRA was born on unknown date. TYRA died about 1845 in Tennessee.

He married PERMELIA ANN LAWSON in Tennessee, April 20,1846. (PERMELIA ANN LAWSON is #620.) PERMELIA was born in South Carolina in 1831.  PERMELIA died in 1863 in Randolph County, Arkansas, at 32 years of age. Her body was interred in Arkansas.

 He married (Mrs.) SATIRA W. (MELTON) FORBIS in Randolph County, Arkansas, October 11, 1863. (SATIRA W. FORBIS is #621.) SATIRA was born in 1837. SATIRA died after 1876 in Arkansas. She was born in McNairy County, Tennessee.  Her father was John Melton, born in 1812 in North Carolina and her mother was the former Martha Swain, born in Tennessee in 1811.

Note:  Marriage records in Washington County, Arkansas, show that a Larkin F. Johnston, age 57, married (Mrs.) Lucinda F. Brown in that County on January 25, 1882.  We do not know for certain that this was our Larkin Farley.  However, our Larkin F. was, in fact, 57 years old at that time, and his 3rd wife had been dead for a few years, so it is quite possible that this was his 4th marriage.

Note: Charles G.'s book does not indicate that the Rev. Larkin Farley ever left Randolph Co., and, L.F.'s marriage to Satira Forbis in 1863 is listed in Randolph Co. records. However, L.F. & family are not shown in the Randolph Co. Census records for 1870 or 1880. (L.F. is also buried in Randolph Co at Siloam) Larkin Farley's third wife is listed on Randolph Co. Marriage Records as Mrs. Satira W. Forbis, age 25 when they married on 11 Oct 1863, which would mean she was born in 1838. Apparently, Satira had no children from her marriage to Mr. Forbis.
