As to my own line, Samuel Farmer Sr. b. 10 Apr 1725 Billerica MA and m. 30 May 1753 Tewksbury MA to Zilpah Hardy. He was a soldier in both the French and Indian War and the Rev. War and is bur. in South Newbury NH (but I have no date of death). All their children we born in Tewksbury MA, but the youngest dau. Sally d. 2 Sep 1850 in South Newbury NH.

His son Samuel Jr. Farmer b. 28 Jan 1758 Tewksbury MA , d. 8 Sep 1838 Redfield, Oswego Co NY, m. 5 May 1785 Tewksbury MA to Tamar Bailey. Samuel Jr. was also a Rev. War soldier. Their oldest child Lucy, was b. 14 Jun 1786 Tewksbury MA, but the rest were all born in Greenfield NH, as follows:

c. Samuel (III) b. 7 Dec 1792
d. John b. 28 Aug 1794
e. Luke b. 3 Jan 1796
f. Irene b. Feb 1799

Jacob-1 McGaw, of Scotch descent, emigrated from Lineygloss, in the north of Ireland, where he was born in 1737, to America, where he settled in Bedford NH. He was a weaver by trade, and became prosperous. He married in 1772 to Margaret Orr of Bedford NH. He d. 1810, she d. 1800. [This section of Bedford NH is now Merrimack NH]. Jacob and his cousin Robert Means settled in what is now Merrimack NH prior to 1770. They operated a tavern and store in the Reeds Ferry (northern) section of the town, near the ferry landing. From the "History of Merrimack NH": "A story told about McGaw is that when pouring a glass of rum he would hold his thumb over the edge of the glass so that it took less rum to fill the glass." The tavern passed down through the McGaw family and was in existence for many years. Records reveal that among the many customers were Horace Greeley and Matthew Thornton.
Children of Jacob & Margaret (Orr) McGaw (born in Bedford NH):
1. John McGaw, b. 12 May 1774, m. Hannah Thornton, dau of Hon. Matthew Thornton
2. Margaret McGaw, b. 25 May 1776, d. 19 Dec 1816; m. 6 March 1806 to Isaac RIDDLE of Bedford NH. He b. 10 June 1762 in Bedford NH
3. Jacob McGaw, b. 8 Sep 1778, lawyer in Bangor ME; the 1854 Bangor ME directory shows: McGaw, Jacob, counsellor, 10-1/2 city pt. block, h. broadway; he m. Phebe V. Poor

Robert-2 McGaw (Jacob-1), b 8 Sep 1778 in Bedford NH; was for many years a leading character in the social, religious and political life of the town. He settled on the old homestead at Reed's Ferry, and when his father died, in 1810, he succeeded to his business as merchant. His business abilities were such that he added largely to the property he inherited from his father, and, though he used his means liberally for every good cause while he lived, he left about a quarter of a million at his death, and beside the endowment of the Institute already named, he bequeathed five thousand dollars as an endowment of the First Congregational Church. Robert took possession of the tavern of his father Jacob, and added a large dwelling house to the front of it. In the early 1900's Miss Madge McEown of Boston MA purchased the property and used the tavern for storage. After the death of Miss McEown her estate was auctioned, and in 1970 the tavern was dismantled and removed to Bedford NH. Robert was instrumental in the creation of the McGaw Institute. In 1846 Robert McGaw planted tree #22 at the centennial anniversary. According to the Londonderry (NH) Vital Records 1722-1910 (Ancestry.com) Robert McGaw and Sarah Morrison married June 8, 1811 in Londonderry NH. She was b abt 1789 in NH. In 1850 the couple was living in Merrimack NH, Martha McGaw, age 16 [b abt 1834 NH] living with them. I have not been able to determine if Martha was their daughter and/or if Jacob had additional children.

Isaac-2 McGaw (Jacob-1) was b. 25 May 1785, and was a graduate of Dartmouth College in 1807. He studied law, first with Hugh Jameson of Bedford NH, and afterwards with his brother, Jacob McGaw, then an eminent lawyer in Bangor ME. He was admitted to the bar, and first opened an office in Bedford NH (the Piscataquog section) in April 1810, where he remained until June 1, 1819, when he located in Windham NH. His name first appears upon the Windham town records in 1820, as moderator of a special meeting. He was the second attorney in town. He devoted himself to his profession and "unsettled land claims and uncertain boundaries afforded professional employment for many years." He often acted as special agent of the town in contests with other towns where legal knowledge was required. He served as town clerk in 1825, 1827-35, 1838, 1840-48 (inclusive), was representative in 1829-1833, 1835, 1838, 1846-1847. He was a witty, genial man, and had many stories of Scottish humor, spoken with a Scotch brogue. For fifteen years before his death he suffered from a wasting and fatal disease. He m. 10 Jan 1822, Eliza Armour, dau of Samuel and Janet (Dinsmoor) Armour. She d. 29 Dec 1848, and when he returned to Merrimack he lived with his eldest daughter, and d. in Merrimack NH 13, Nov 1863.

Edward-1 Spaulding / Spalden, b. 13 Sep 1596 in England (see below), died 26 Feb 1690 in Chelmsford, Middlesex Co. MA.; m. (1) Margaret Elliott/Elyot [d. Aug., 1640]; (2) probably in 1642, Rachel - [d. about 1670].

Accompanied by his wife and two or more children he came to America, probably from Lincolnshire, England, about 1619, remaining briefly in Virginia. Edward came to Jamestown, Virginia from London with Sir George Yeardley in 1619. That same year, the brother of Indian Chief Powhatan nearly wiped out the colony, and Edward with some of the remaining settlers came north to the Plymouth Colony. Although according to a census on 16 Feb 1623 he still resided in Jamestown (then called "James Cittye"). As Governor Yeardley was a native of London, it would have been natural for him to take to Virginia on his return there in 1619 other natives or inhabitants of London.

For that reason it is significant that London parish registers include the following entries from two neighboring parishes:
At St Peter's Cornhill: Christened Sonday, 13 Sep 1596, Edward, son of Willfred Spalding, cutler, child born 4 Sep Friday. Christened Sunday, 30 Oct 1597, Anne, da of Willfred Spalding, cutter, born in Randolles house sexton, the 3 of Oct Monday. Christened Sunday, 30 Jul 1592, Willfred Spalding son of Willfred Spalding, cutter, ch. born 22 Jul, Sat. At St Olave's Hart Street: Buried 1 Sep 1603, Willfrie, son of Willfrie Spalding. Buried 6 Sep 1603, Anne, wife of Willfrie Spalding and her child, newborn and unbaptized. Some of the cutlers of London came from Essex, and it therefore may be more than coincidence that we find in St James, Colchester, there was living one Edward Spalding, whose will was proved in 1608 (original now in Essex Record Office, Chelmsford, England). Edward Spaulding if born in 1596 would have been 23 years old in 1619 when the American settler came to the New World.
Then he removed to Barbados for some years, but settling about 1634 at Braintree, Mass., where he was made freeman in 1640. He was one of the early proprietors of Chelmsford, Mass., in 1653, and was upon the first board of selectmen of that town. Edward Spaulding was made freeman of the colony May 13,1640 at Braintree which is the earliest record found of him. He was one of the petitioners from here in October 1645 for land for a new plantation. He removed 1645-47 to Wenham MA and was one of the founders of Chelmsford in 1655 where he died Feb.26, 1670.

Solomon-7 Spalding (Solomon-6, Daniel-5, Henry-4, Henry-3, Andrew-2, Edward-1) born 20 July 1811 in Merrimack NH. He died 2 June 1902 in Nashua NH; He married 16 Feb 1834 to Sarah Darling Edson, dau of Asa & Theodosia Edson [she b. 1 March 1811 in Springfield, Windsor Co VT and died 25 June 1883]. At age 16, he moved to Nashua, worked at the store of Joel Carter and later the same year for Hugh Jameson. In 1832, he bought the interest of Hugh Jameson. With John Reed, who was the husband of his sister Lucinda, established a mercantile firm, Reed & Spalding. After success, he dissolved it. Moved to Franklin, NH, the terminus of the northern NH railroad. 2 or 3 years later, moved to Wentworth, NH with Putnam Spalding. They established the firm of P&S Spalding. After 4 successful years, they disposed of their business i n Wentworth & he went back to Nashua. Then, he established the flour & grain store on Railroad Square, which was lat er conducted by Stearns, who was his partner. In 1874 he disposed of that & retired from active business. He accepted the position of police judge for the city of Nashua & had a wonderful reputation. In 1880 he became one of the founders & incorporators of the NH Banking Company, was one of its first board of directors and for many years directed the policy of this popular institution. At one time, he was commander of the Nashua Artillery, which had a very high reputation. He attended the Unitarian Society of Nashua for over 70 years. The Spalding-Whittemore house was built in 1834 by Solomon Spalding at age 23 and occupied by him for 68 years. This was the first brick house built on the north side of the river and was the first one in Nashua, or Dunstable as it was then called, that was built by an individual. Mr. Spalding had the rather unusual experience of living in the Town of Dunstable, the Town of Nashua, the Town of Nashville, and the City of Nashua, all while under one roof. The house was later owned and occupied by his daughter, Mrs. Sarah G. Whittemore, and is an enduring memorial to the thrift of one who took an active part in the progress of Nashua. When the house was built, it was considered quite a distance from the village, but is now, and has long been, in one of the pleasantest residential sections of the city. I t may be well said of Mr. Spalding that "He builded better than he knew".

He removed to Nashua in 1826 and became not only an eminently successful merchant, but for twenty-five years was deeply interested in railroad matters. He held responsible positions in business circles, including the presidency of the Nashua Bank and of the Concord Railroad. He was a selectman of the town, and later an alderman of the city, and he represented Nashua in the Legislature and Constitutional Convention. He also had a seat in the Governor's Council. He accumulated an estate approach one million dollars, and at the time of his death was said to be the wealthiest man in the state. The benevolent bequests in his will exceeded $50,000, including school funds of $10,000 each to New Ipswich, Wilton and Amherst, the three towns of his residence before establishing himself in Nashua, and he also remembered the Academy of New Ipswich with a gift of $5000.
