Sarah Wing was born 7d 12m 1743 [7 Feb 1744] at Oblong, Dutchess, New York. She was the daughter of Abraham and Anstice Wing.
On 8d 2m 1764 [8 Feb 1764], she married Ichabod Merritt, the son of Nehemiah and Dinah (deceased), at the Oblong monthly meeting.
Sarah and Ichabod were granted a certificate to the "Queensbury monthly meeting" on 16d 1m 1766 [16 Jan 1766]. Along with Abraham Wing's family, they were the first permanent settlers at the Queensbury Patent.
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. They were received there on 19d 8m 1784 [19 Aug 1784].
