FARNSWORTH, CYRUS K. (c. 1823-1899). Younger brother of William Farnsworth; member and, it appears, a lay leader of the first group of SDA's in Washington, New Hampshire (see Washington, New Hampshire Church), in whose home many of the early SDA meetings took place. He married Delight Oakes, whose mother, Mrs. Rachel Oakes (later Preston), was instrumental in bringing the knowledge of the seventh-day Sabbath to Adventist believers of Washington.
