Waldo Lincoln gave Sarah's birth date as September 18, 1757 and stated also that she "married a Mr. Dean, but nothing further is known of her". Support comes from two documents. First, the published transcript of a June 13, 1798 memorandum signed with Rebekah Lincoln's mark states that five pounds had been paid to John Dean out of the estate of "Virginia John" Lincoln. (Rebekah apparently decided Sarah need not wait until her death.) Second, an 1810 letter written by John Lincoln, Jr. mentions his sister "Sarah Dean".
It is believed that Sarah married John Franklin Dean around 1777 in Virginia. About 1800, the young family moved to Kentucky, as did Sarah's older brother Abraham. Sarah remained in Kentucky and died in Flat Lick.. Sarah and John Dean are reported to have had at least five children - Elizabeth, Abraham, Thomas, Rebecca, and John (my ancestor).
