History of Woodstock p.135-136
Three brothers, Samuel,David,and Stephen Farnsworth, setted in No.4, afterwards Charlestown, N.H.,in 1740. Stephen married, Eunice Hastings, born in Watertown,Mass.,September 3, 1722. His captivity among the Indians, which occurred in 1746, is one of the well-known events of those days. He died in Charlestown, September 6, 1771, at the age of fifty-seven. In 1778, his widow moved to this town and lived with her son, Stephen, till her death, which took place Friday, the 21st of June, 1811. She left a numerous offspring, namely, six children, forty-six grandchildren, and seventy-five great-grandchildren, making in all one hundred and twenty-seven. She never experienced a fit of sickness in the course of her life, except a slight attack of fever She never made use of many of the luxuries of life; was much averse to spirituous liquor of any kind. Her principal diet was milk and vegetables. She was confined in her last sickness about nine weeks, during which distressing scene she manifested the greatest calmness, composure of mind, and Christian fortitude, and left the world in the full assurance of a blessed immortality beyond the grave.

The Morgan Cemetery (sometimes called Adams Cemetery)in South Woodstock,Vt is where her sons, Stephen & Jonathan Farnsworth are buried. It is a nice, quiet place in So.Woodstock up Fletcher Rd. There are few grave stones but many stones to mark the place where family members are buried. The Farnsworths most likely are all buried in
that cemetery.

To my precious 5th great, grandmother, a pioneer into the wilderness of New Hampshire in 1740's, lived in Fort #4 and had a large family and descendants that called you blessed. I'll love you forever.
