This may not be the right Sarah Williams, but her parents were Samuel Williams and Mary, and she was born in Salem, July 15, 1672: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FHLT-BN5

Salem and Taunton are about 60 miles away, though, so it may be the incorrect Sarah, but the dates work with the marriage.

Torrey shows Samuel and Mary married ca 1662 in Taunton.

That woman born in Salem in 1672 is not the right Sarah Williams. This Sarah was of Taunton and was married in 1681. It appears that Samuel and Mary's marriage date is wrong in Wikitree. These are poorly sourced profiles that have experienced many merges, so it's difficult to figure out where the marriage date came from or when it was added.
It's hard to know which dates or places are correct; it never hurts to broaden the search a bit :)
