Sampson George Farnsworth
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 5, 1810
Windsor County
Vermont, USA
Death: Feb. 13, 1884
Walla Walla County
Washington, USA

Sampson George Farnsworth was born in Woodstock, Vermont to Abijah Farnsworth and Betsy Peck. His father died in 1812 so I would think that he really never knew his father very well because he was so small when he died.
His mother remarried to Allen Carpenter and in his Rev. War Pension, Sampson is mentioned. 1820 Rev.War Pension application for Allen Carpenter, 2nd husband of Betsey Farnsworth (Sampson's mother). Mention's
"his wife's 12 year old son named Sampson Farnsworth."

1850 Census Illinois, Woodford County p.465
Sapson Farnsworth 42 Farmer New York (But believe from other sources he was born in Woodstock....Woodstock Vital Records. Woodstock was part of NY before statehood).
