Eliza J Preston Farnum
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 20, 1810
Death: unknown

NOTE FROM FAG MEMBER - "I'm not sure Eliza is buried at Plymouth. She died at Natick, Mass.; death record does not report an out of state burial."

While here name is included on the stone it is not clear whether she is buried at this cemetery. If anyone has information about the final resting place of Eliza Farnum please send an edit.

Note from FAG Member - Born 11/20/1810, Rumney. Father, Benjamin Preston. Mother, Ann Williams.

According to the death record of Eliza J. Farnum who died 11/6/1867 in Natwick, her father was Bery Berston, not Benjamin Preston. This would suggest that these are two entirely different women who just happened to be named Eliza J. born within a year of each other in the same town & who just happened to marry a Farnum.
It seems likely, therefore, that Eliza Jane Preston-Farnum is, indeed, buried with her husband Aaron as indicated on the stone in Plymouth.

In honour of a Preston cousin.The Eliza J. Farnum who died 11/6/1867 in Natiwick's father was Bery Berston. So it is unlikely that Eliza is the same as this Eliza who's father was Benjamin Preston.
