A couple years ago, Sarah Royce (b. 1665), profile Royce-81, was removed as wife of John Chapman (Chapman-241). And then Chapman's wife Sarah was given a separate profile as Sarah Unknown (Unknown-256167).
However, I am not convinced by the arguments given for doing this. She and Samuel Lincoln were convicted in 1682 of fornication before marriage and they had a daughter Lydia (late 1682 or early 1683). But there is no evidence that she ever married Samuel Lincoln, and she would have therefore been free to marry John Chapman about 1684.
Most troubling to me, the only thing that would argue against her marriage to John Chapman is the often quoted date that Sarah died on November 3, 1688, Norwich, Connecticut. But I have been unable to find any source that she (or anyone else) died anywhere in Connecticut on November 3, 1688. Does anyone know where that date came from & surname given for Sarah (if such a death record exists at all)?
