Birth: Jun. 1, 1662
Death: Jan. 3, 1737

Son of Ralph/2 and Elizabeth Holt Farnum.
Husband of Sarah Sterling Farnum.

Ralph/3 and his brother John/3 were called as witnesses on 7-30-1692 in the famous witchcraft trial of Martha Carrier.

He left Andover MA in 1737 to live with Barrachias in Rumford (Concord) NH.
He conveyed land to Barrachias in Rumford NH (Concord)in Sept of 1737 and since he was old and feeble it is unlikely that he returned to Andover MA to die.

4great grandfather to Mary Baker Eddy.

Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910)
Mary Baker Eddy was an influential American author, teacher, and religious
leader, noted for her groundbreaking ideas about spirituality and health, which
she named Christian Science. She articulated those ideas in her major work,
Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, first published in 1875. Four
years later she founded the Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston,
Massachusetts, which today has branch churches and societies around the world.
In 1908 she launched The Christian Science Monitor, a leading international
newspaper, the recipient, to date, of seven Pulitzer Prizes.
