Sarah Nurse Paul married Jeremiah Stewart in Salem MA in May of 1744 and moved to Wells Maine. Prior to marrying Jeremiah, Sarah married John Paul in Salem MA in Nov. 1737. John Paul died before the birth of their son on June 29,1740. Sarah's maiden name was Nurse and I am trying to find out who she is descended from. Any help would be appreciated. I have checked vital records from Salem MA

I did some digging and found a strong lead. Benjamin and Sarah (Boston) Nurse had 5 children, including a Sarah, baptized on December 24, 1727, in Salem. Marriage intentions for Benjamin and Sarah were recorded in September, 1714. Assuming they didn't wait too long to marry, they could be your Sarah's parents. Sarah's first marriage was in 1737, putting her probable DOB not much after 1719, possibly earlier. Hope this helps.
