I'm so sorry I haven't responded sooner, but I wasn't able to re-visit the forum until now.
Mary FARWELL was born in Chelmsford MA ca 1681. She married Deacon Thomas COLBURN ca 1699. She died 7 Sep 1739 and he remarried to Rachel (SPAULDING) BUTTERFIELD. Thomas died 2 Nov 1770. Rachel died 18 Aug 1763. Thomas and Mary's graves are in the Little Cemetery, South Nashua NH (now called Old Burying Ground in Nashua NH), according to the Farwell genealogy and a Dunstable town history I have (which includes tombstone inscriptions).
I must tell you that Mary's birthdate, marriage date, and death date (and even her identification as Thomam's wife, for that matter), aren't listed in the Dunstable or Chelmsford MA vital records. Her tombstone doesn't list her age at death. This info comes from the Farwell genealogy but that book got the info from the Colburn genealogy, so you will need to verify it. However, I will say that, when double-checked against various vital records, probate records, etc., the Farwell genealogy is generally accurate. So, if you can't verify all this right away, I wouldn't worry too much.
I'm not sure what you already know. If you need the names of Mary and Thomas' children, let me know and I'll post them.
Hope this helps.
