4)  NOTES (with source citations as indicated in brackets):  
 
A Colburn family genealogy manuscript indicates that Hannah Colburn was born in 1673 in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, the daughter of Thomas and Hannah (Rolfe) Colburn[1].  There is no birth entry for Hannah in the Chelmsford vital records book.
Hannah married Joseph Farwell (1658-1740) of Chelmsford on 23 January 1695/6 in Chelmsford[1-3].  He was the son of Joseph and Hannah (Learned) Farwell of Chelmsford. They had ten children, all born and recorded in Chelmsford, and listed in the Farwell genealogy book[2]:
*  Joseph Farwell (1696-1772), married 1719 Mary Gilson (1703-1774).
*  Thomas Farwell (1698-1731), married 1723 Elizabeth Pierce (1698-????).
*  Hannah Farwell (1701-1762), married (1) 1719 Eleazer Gilson (1695-1754); (2) 1755 Ephraim Sawtell (1685-1768).
*  Elizabeth Farwell (1703-1762), married 1722 John Stone (1699-1784).
*  Edward Farwell (1706-1775), married 1728 Hannah Russell (1708-1775).
*  Mary Farwell (1709-1804), married 1726 James Stone (1702-1783).
*  John Farwell (1711-1771), married (1) 1735 Jane Lakin (1715-1755); (2) 1755 Susanna White (1735-????).
*  Samuel Farwell (1714-1757), married 1737 Elizabeth Moors (1719-1797).
*  Daniel Farwell (1717-1808), married 1739 Mary Moore (1718-1800).
*  Sarah Farwell (1721-1721).
The Joseph Farwell family resided for several years after their marriage in Chelmsford, and then removed to Groton.  They attended the church in Groton[2].
Joseph Farwell died intestate in 1740, and his heirs settled his estate by deeds amongst themselves.  Hannah Farwell, his widow, conveyed her dower rights in Joseph’s estate to her son Joseph Farwell on 10 March 1740/1[2].
Hannah (Colburn) Farwell died some time after 10 March 1740/1, probably in Groton.  There is no entry for her death in the Groton vital record book.  There is a Find A Grave memorial for her but there is no extant grave stone[4].
