Harris in his Story of the Bloods called Sarah (Bennett) (Lewis) Blood the daughter of Moses2 Bennett. No supporting documentation was given. Moses, son of Moses and Anna (Blanchard) Bennett was born 15 August 1726 (Groton V.R. 1:27). On 17 February 1746 Moses Bennett, Jr., and Sarah Blood were married (ibid. 1:22). Sarah, daughter of Ebenezer Blood and his wife Abigail was born 21 August 1722 (ibid. 1:36). The first four children born to Moses and Sarah Bennett are recorded in Groton; two additional children are recorded in the neighboring town of Shirley. Their fourth child, Sarah, born 17 November 1752, is no doubt the Sarah who married first Ebenezer Lewis as his second wife, and second, Jonas Blood. The sixth child, daughter Sybil, born 17 September 1755, later married Timothy Bolton. After the death of Moses Bennett his widow Sarah married 16 June 1767 Aaron Farnsworth (Groton V.R. 2:23) as his fourth wife. Aaron was born 29 August 1709 and died July 1769. After Aaron's death Sarah married ___ Bolton and died 24 June 1822, aged 99 years, 10 months (Moses Franklin Farnsworth, Farnsworth Memorial- Being a Record of Matthias Farnsworth and His Descendants in America [1897], pp. 156-57). The marriage of Sarah (Blood) (Bennett) Farnsworth of Groton and William Bolton probably took place in Shirley, Massachusetts, where the intentions were published 16 May 1776 and where almost two years later William's son Timothy married Sarah's daughter Sybel Bennett. After William Bolton died on 30 April 1804, his widow Sarah most likely made arrangements for lifetime care with her son-in-law and daughter, Jonas and Sarah Blood. Her presence in their household in 1820 certainly is evidence that the Sarah Bennett who married Ebenezer Lewis in 1773 did indeed later marry Jonas Blood and was the daughter of Moses and Sarah (Blood) Bennett who was born 17 November 1752.
