Research Notes

Maiden name of mother: Jacobus did not report the maiden name of Sarah's mother in his research published in 1951.[1] He didn't confirm the research of William Easton, published in 1899. Easton's research was not addressed by Jacobus.

Date of death: A date of death of 5 Dec 1741 is reported in this profile, but a supporting source was not supplied. Jacobus did not report her date of death.[1] A corresponding profile could not be found on Find-a-Grave. A profile of another person with a similar name, birth date and residence was found, but the birth date and spouse are different.[8]
