I have not followed any of William Farris and Judith Johnson children except for John Thomas. This is what I have from the 1860 census. I have also included John's obituary.

1860 Barren County census, Kentucky, Dist #2, Glasgow Twp, Aug 28, page 110, #804:

It appears that this Farris family lived in Texas 1851-1856 as three children were born there.
