How could the mother of a child born in 1749, have a birth year of 1747? Something is wrong here
Re asking if I thought she was capable of giving birth at age 2 years: You're being rhetorical, right?

Regarding her birth, I misspoke. I must have seen birth year 1729 in my 'head'.

She is likely to be the Anne "Farnaum" born at Andover Apr 25, 1725 or the Ann Farnaum born Sept 10, 1729, both of whom were born to parents Jonathan and Elizabeth. However, I not seen anything to definitively tie either of these Ann(es) to the marriage with Richard Barker. More research is needed to ensure if either is the correct Anne.

Hi,  Thanks for your research.  In one weekend, with WikiTree collaboration, a New Hampshire profile how moved from "unsourced" to "Connected".

Wow!

Anna Farnum was born at Andover, Massachusetts on September 10, 1729, daughter of Jonathan Farnum and Elizabeth Barker.

I have added sources for her b, m, d and her father's probate record to her profile, and connected her to her parents on WikiTree.

Her father's estate admin includes Anne, wife of Richard Barker, among his children.

PS I added bio to her husband Richard and connected him to his parents.
Thank you!!!  Filling in the bio helps with some of these families who were on the move.  I tracked one ancestor from Connecticut, to Vermont, to New Hampshire, and on into Canada, then back to New York.  His name was John Paine and his Rev War pension said he was "a mariner"; perhaps he thought of his ship as his home.
