Excerpt from Matthias Farnsworth and His Descendants in America: A Monograph

Of the family such scraps of information as they may possess, the author will feel that his labors have not been in vain.

How long a time has elapsed since the Rev. James Delap Farnsworth began the compilation of family records to which we now gain the first insight in the following pages. Most of us were then unborn, and volumes of family history have been enacted in the many intervening years. He died in 1854, nearly forty years ago, and the incomplete material he had gathered passed into the hands of a worthy successor, then in the prime of life. In his hands the framework erected by his predecessor has, by unremitting attention, grown to large proportions. Now he, in turn, long past the age of three score and ten, finds his work still far from complete, or from even a degree of perfection that will warrant its publication for some time to come. This should not be, and the Genealogy need not be long delayed if the Farns worths in America who read these pages will send to the author the names and dates of births, marriages and deaths in their families, and urge others of the name to do the same.
