    • [Byrne.FTW]

      The early home of some of the Farnums, after leaving Andover, was at Dracut, Mass., and it is said, though it is somewhat doubtful, that they were of Welsh ancestry. It was a strong family, many of its carly members taking a prominent part in the early public affairs of the country. Brig. Gen. James M. Varnum was b. in Dracut, 1748, and took an active part in the Rev. War. A younger bro., Gen. Joseph B. Varnum, b. 1750, was a Capt. during the Rev. War, and 16 yrs. a mem. of Cong., during which time he was 4 yrs. Speaker of the House and 6 yrs. U. S. Senator. Among the noteworthy names of the family in Andover at an early date were Capt. John Farnum of the French and Indian War; Mr. John Farnum, a grad. of Harv. Univ., 1761, and member of the convention for framing the Constitution of Mass.; Capt. Benjamin Farnum of the Rev. War, Dea. of the North Ch.; Dea. Jedediah Farnum, and his son Timothy, Esq., a grad. of Harv. Univ., 1808, lawyer of Monmouth, Me.; Rev. Enoch Farnum, of Wayne, Me.; Mr. Armstrong Farnum, merchant, Boston and Phila.; Capt. Levi Farnham, etc.
