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 FamilySearch.org 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)
