Abigail Farnsworth/John Hutchins Line, Groton, MA

Abigail Farnsworth the ninth child of Matthias Farnsworth
and Mary Farr, was born Jan 17, 1671 at Groton, MA. She
married her cousin, John Hutchins (son of Nicholas Hutchins
whose wife was Elizabeth Farr, the sister of Abigail's
mother, Mary (Farr) Farnsworth. The family of Nicholas
Hutchins lived near the homestead of Matthias Farnsworth
and he, and probably his son John Hutchins formed part
of the Farnsworth garrison in 1692. The marriage prob-
ably took place during those disturbed times when no
record of marriages could be kept. There is no record
of marriages from 1690 to 1706 at Groton. Butler in his
History of Groton, gives the names of John Hutchin and
and his and Abigail Farnsworth's children, viz: 3d Gen.
