The Town of Easton history [1]says: Titus Drake, "marriage intention published December 1, 1792, at Bridgewater, to Sarah Lincoln, who died July 25, 1858, aged 85 years, daughter of Oliver and Ruth Lincoln."

The 1855 State Census of Massachusetts [2] shows the household in Mansfield, Massachusetts contains:

Research Notes

Originally I included a death record showing her birth year 1785. This isn't possible if she married 1792 and had a son in 1794. Removed the death record.  :Williams-27459 12:58, 15 September 2017 (EDT)

However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage (beta) of DNA with Sarah:

I'm removing the death record as I suspect this is the wrong person. UNLIKELY Sally was born in 1785 and married in 1792!
