    Absalom Farwell, son of Samuel Farwell (i), was born at Marblehead, Massachusetts, September 21, 1741. The history of Bethel, Maine, where he settled, repeats some family tradition to the effect that he was an English soldier and sailor who settled first in Marblehead, then lived in other placs and finally fought in th revolution. The fact Absalom was born in Marblehead makes it likely that his father was the Englishman, soldier and sailor, etc., though Absalom was a soldier in the revolution from Marblehead, Massachusetts. He was in 1775 in the company of Captain Joel Smith (Fourth) ; regiment of Colonel John Glover (Twenty-first). A later record of service is given in the archives in the same regiment but under Captain Thomas Grant. After the revolution he removed to Maine and settled. He married, at Marblehead,
