Whats that you mention about Farrar? Was Farrar a maker of engines? I know the Farrar family in southern Kansas. They are in the foundry and machine shop business.

Default farrar +trefts 1872 model

Here are some picts from the Buffalo City Directory 1872. Notice the 3 mount plates for the engine to the foundation. Does not appear on later models.
