Biography

Sarah was a Friend (Quaker)

Sarah Wing was born 7d 12m 1743 [7 Feb 1744] at Oblong, Dutchess, New York.[1] She was the daughter of Abraham and Anstice Wing.[1]

On 8d 2m 1764 [8 Feb 1764], she married Ichabod Merritt, the son of Nehemiah and Dinah (deceased), at the Oblong monthly meeting.[2]

Sarah and Ichabod were granted a certificate to the "Queensbury monthly meeting" on 16d 1m 1766 [16 Jan 1766].[3] Along with Abraham Wing's family, they were the first permanent settlers at the Queensbury Patent.[3]

The events of the Revolutionary War forced the abandonment of Queensbury. During this time, Sarah and her family returned to Oblong. On 14d 6m 1784 [14 Jun 1784], Sarah was issued a certificate to the Nine Partners monthly meeting from the Oblong monthly meeting, along with husband Ichabod, and children Joseph, Deborah, and Mary.[4] They were received there on 19d 8m 1784 [19 Aug 1784].[5]
