    • Eventually, Elijah procured possession of the homestead farm, a good place to raise his sons. This seemed a better arrangement, because Elijah had six sons, while John M. had only one. John M. already had a farm of his own when his father died.

    Notes 
    • Aaron lived on the homestead farm. By this time, it was referred to as the Aaron Apgar farm. There was a wooden house built close to the main highway. This gave more room for his growing family, because the homestead had the majority of his father's family still living there. Besides, by building close to the highway, it saved the task of shoveling out the long lane to the stone house as the winter snows came. However, the house did not last as long as the first house. There is scarcely a trace of the wooden house remaining.

  • Notes 
    • Aaron lived on the homestead farm while his family was growing up. Since all four of his sons went elsewhere to make their living, he eventually sold the farm to his cousin, John Wilson Apgar I, and went to live in a house on Cokesbury-Califon Road, later occupied by the Jones family.
