I am looking for information on this family:Lt. John Safford(17 July 1742 Ipswich MA to 4 April 1823 Washington NH)who married Mehitable Farnsworth(25 May 1745 Harvard MA to 20 March 1826 Washington NH).They moved from Harvard MA to Washington NH about 1770.

The MYSTERY is the year 1777 -- a child died May 21, another May 27, and TWO died August 29, after my husband's ancestor was born on July 29.This is so sad! WHAT happened??
