Memoir of the Farrar Family comments on his age at death of 101 y. 7 m. 12 d.: "Having survived all his college co[n]temporaries, he was the last person living who had been graduated under the royal government, and is now the eldest among the tenants of Mount Auburn. His grandfather died when he was 13 years of age, and was born 17 years after the immigration of his ancestor, so that the two lives will cover almost the entire history of New England from its settlement to the middle of the 19th century."

    [Photo shows a footstone labeled "1182", nothing with a name nor any dates on it. Death listed as 21 Feb 1850 (which is clearly incorrect as NEHGR had a death notice printed July 1849, p. 3:291], though text of memorial says died in Hollis 21 Feb 1849 and gives interment date as 11/26/1850, which would imply this site is a re-interment, if true.]
