Sarah KNOWLTON m. Barzillai LAMB 1734 Mass.
Posted by: Carol Botteron (ID *****4661) Date: May 24, 2007 at 13:39:56
  of 924

Can anyone point me to a good source for the parents of Sarah KNOWLTON who married Barzillai LAMB on 28 Feb. 1734 in Hopkinton, Mass.? Barzillai was born in 1712 (also in Hopkinton); Sarah was probably born about 1712-14.

Mass. vital records (NEHGS) has no Sarah, Sally, or Sally Knowlton, Knolton, or Nolton born between 1705 and 1720. Possible that she was a widow but I have not found any likely ones.

C. Stocking's "History and Genealogy of the Knowltons" lists her father as Robert and gives his ancestry, but George Henry Knowlton's "Errata and Addenda to Dr. Stocking's History..." says "Erase Sarah. Cannot place her ... Erase Robert ... died unmarried."

Another source says Sarah's father's name was Daniel but I have not found any information on him.

Also, has anyone found death records for Barzillai or Sarah? I searched the Mass. vital records until 1820.

Sources, info, or suggestions appreciated.
