     Timothy Farrar Saunderson was born before 1794. He was the son of William Saunderson and Sarah Farrar.1 He was baptized in 1796 in First Congregational Church, Westford, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.1
     "William Sarnderson [sic] and Sarah his wife and their children William Sally and Timothy from Harvard in the County of Worshestor" were warmed out of Chelmsford on 20 January 1794. "Warning Out," which had its origins in England, was used to rid towns of undesirables. Selectmen determined who could live within a town, and who had to move on. Indigent or unemployed individuals were warned out, as were those who didn't conform to Puritan principles.2
