Hannah Whitney, parentage and birth unknown, died 18 May 1839, Concord, MA.

She married, 17 Mar 1798, Concord, MA, Jacob Farrar "both of Concord",[1] son of Jacob and Mary (Merriam) Farrar, as his second wife. He was born 15 Feb 1749/50, Concord, MA, and died 7 Mar 1820, Concord, MA, aged 70. He had married firstly, 26 Aug 1781, Concord, MA, Elizabeth Heywood "of Acton", daughter of John and Elizabeth (-----) Heywood, born 14 May 1759, Acton, MA, and died 21 Mar 1796 aged 36 years, Concord, MA.

Children of Jacob and Elizabeth (Heywood) Farrar, probably incomplete:

i. Daniel Farrar, b. 19 Jun 1794, Concord, MA.
ii. Amos Farrar, b. 5 Mar 1796 (twin), Concord, MA.
iii. Silas Farrar, b. 5 Mar 1796 (twin), Concord, MA.

Children of Jacob and Hannah (Whitney) Farrar, if any, unknown.


It seems likely that Hannah was a widow, given her husband's age. Of whom she might have been a widow is a mystery.
