Who was Sarah who married ca. 1683 to Samuel Curtis?

+1 vote

Samuel Curtis Sr. (1645?-1688) is currently shown as being married to a Sarah Salmon.  But as I noted in a comment on his wikitree page (earlier this year), he was perhaps married to a Sarah Tower ( https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Tower-2948 ).   Is there any good evidence for who his wife Sarah was?

Well that's a bummer. He has a marriage record 20 Feb 1683 (in the Barbour Collection) but they forgot to mention the brides name. For what it's worth the Curtis/Curtiss Society says it's Sarah Salmon daughter of William Salmon and Katherine (?), on 20 February 1683 at Wethersfield, They cite: Rose Mary Goodwin, A Family Named Curtis: Descendants of Thomas Curtis of Wethersfield, CT., 1598-1982, p. 2, 8
