Note: There is considerable disagreement among Bracewell researchers as to Sarah's maiden name. The 2 most frequently suggested names are Sampson and Valentine. I have not seen any definitive proof one way or the other. At this time, Sampson is the surname I feel has the most credibility.
Sarah's will is dated March 20, 1733/34 and was recorded in Isle of Wight County, Virginia on May 26 1735. Her will mentions her son John, and his children (her grandchildren ) Mary, Benjamin, William and Sampson, as well as her daughter Jane.
