The birth date, place, and parents' identities have not been determined for Sarah Gibbs. The following dates have been suggested: 1738;

Sarah married Jonathan Murdock on 1 July 1756 in Mansfield, Tolland County, Connecticut County, where she gave birth to six children:[1]

  • Susanna, born 4 July 1757 (V.R. 1A, 249)
  • Sarah, born 26 February 1759 (V.R. 1A, 249)
  • Mercy, born 16 January 1761 (V.R. 1, 100)
  • Lydia, born 15 March 1763 (V.R. 1, 100)
  • Pamela, born 7 July 1769 (V.R. 1, 100)
  • Jonathan, born 1 August 1771 (V.R. 1, 100)

Sometime after Jonathan's birth, and before April 1776, Jonathan Sr, Sarah, and family removed to Coventry< Tolland County, where on 7 April, Sarah gave birth to daughter Submit. Sadly Sarah died the same day, evidently of complications of childbirth.[2]

Gibbs-908 is a duplicate of Gibbs-3225, and will be merged into Gibbs-1 after the merger below is completed.

Gibbs-3225 and Gibbs-1 appear to represent the same person because: Same husband, same children (although Gibbs-1 children have no profiles, not wanting to create duplicate profiles), same death date. Birth date and location do not match, but neither has a source. Birth will need further research.
