Marcia is the daughter of John Farwell and Marcia Bowman (Winter) Anderson, and granddaughter of the Hon. John Anderson, Maine politician.

It is said that that "Marcia was the better of the family lovely to look at, gay and charming and outgoing and kind."

On November 28, 1877, Marcia married Farwell James Edmands, who came from a well to do, prominant family in Newton, Mass. His father, John Wiley Edmands, was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for Massachusette's 3rd district. Ironically, he took office the same year Marcia's grand-father died, 1953, who was a representative for the state of Maine. Within a year or two of the birth of their daughter Annie in 1878, Farwell took sick. He died in 1884.

One of her old beaus, Mr. Spring, came and took both Marcia and Annie to Portland, ME. He died after only a couple of years of marraige, leaving them alone again. They eventually ended up back in Newton, where she died in 1901 from cancer.

Her father and grandfather are listed as being buried in the family tomb, but it does not appear that Marcia is buried with them. Cemetery records show a seperate listing for: Spring, Marcia W, 1901. It is known that Marcia and her sister Annie are "buried in a grove behind the house in the family cemetery."
