    "… In 1654 died John Faunce, who had married Southworth's cousin, Patience Morton. At the head of the grave, during the burial, stood a pitiful group of little orphans left in poverty, but Lieutenant (Thomas) Southworth taking by the hand Thomas, a boy of eight years, led him away to adopt into his family and, transmitting that which he had received from Gov. Bradford, gave the orphan a good education, secular and religious, for which Thomas Faunce, the last ruling elder known in Plymouth, said that he had 'reason to bless God to all eternity.'"
