The Town of Easton history 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  shows the household in Mansfield, Massachusetts contains:

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)
