Sarah4 Whitney (Cornelius3, Joshua2, John1), daughter of (Cornelius3 and Sarah (?Shepard?) Whitney, was born 8 Jan 1731/2, Groton, MA,[1] and probably the one who died after 1756.[2]

It seems likely she was the Sarah Whitney who married, 12 Jun 1750, Killingly, CT, Zechariah Cutting,[3] son of David and Elizabeth (Wales) Cutting. He was born 22 Jul 1722, Killingly, CT.

Children of Zechariah and Sarah4 (Whitney) Cutting, possibly incomplete:

i. Azariah Cutting, b. 21 Jan 1756, Killingly, CT.[4]


It has been written that this Sarah Whitney was the one who married, 26 Nov 1747, Groton, MA, Benjamin Wilson. I think that this is unlikely, and that it was a different Sarah5 Whitney who contracted that marriage. For a fuller discussion, see some extracts from the mailing list. The marriage record above seems to pertain to this Sarah, who is age-appropriate, whose family lived in Killingly, and who is otherwise unaccounted for.
