Research Notes

According to Becky Syphers family tradition holds that Fanny's maiden name was Hobbs. We get "Stearns" or "Sternes" from the marriage record in the town of Andover, NH. There was a Hobbs family living near the Bartletts in the 1870 census.

So far, I have found 3 New Hampshire death records on that relate to Fanny. Her own has no maiden name for her. The one for her son Sylvanus has "Fanny H. Hobbs". The third for her daughter Joanna Webster has "Fanny Stevens" and her birth place as Plainfield, NH. Nally-4 07:11, 15 March 2011 (EDT)

I, too, have been perplexed by Fanny and have also found the name HOBBS. I had not obtained a copy of Joanna's death record and did not know that she listed her mother as being born in Plainfield.

There is a book titled: Plainfield Genealogies and there are 4 pages that contain information on the names BARTLETT and STEARNS. I've just written to the Plainfield Historical Society to see if I can purchase copies of these pages.

Will keep you posted.
