Sarah was a Friend (Quaker)

Sarah Wing "ye Daughter of Stephen & Sarah Wing Was borne ye 5th Day of ye 12th mo. 1659" [1]. A handwritten copy, said to be "taken from the oldest known records from the Town an are true copies of said record as follows.", gives Sarah's birth date as 5 Feb 1658. This record also identifies her mother as Sarah Briggs, who married Stephen Wing "the 7th of 11th mo. 1654".[2]

Sarah's marriage to Robert Gifford 1680 was recorded at the Sandwich Quaker Meetinghouse.[3][4] Her death on "26th, 6 mo. 1720" was recorded in the Records of the Society of Friends, Dartmouth Monthly Meeting (C.R.3).[5] [6]
