Sarah Osgood was involved with a man named Thomas Sargent when she was unmarried and about 15 years old. She had an illegitamate child, Elizabeth, which she claimed was fathered by Thomas. This issue was taken to court which ruled "there is too much ground for suspicion," but "the case was not proved," and the Court "could not judge Sargent to be the father". At some point in her life, she apparently married John Colby - possibly as his second wife. [1]
