Family:Whitney, Sarah (a1731-a1774)
She married before 26 Jan 1773 someone named ----- Whitcomb, since the will of her father calls her Sarah Whitcomb. There are three candidates for her husband:
- Capt. Hezekiah Whitcomb, as given in the database; he was born say 1730.
- Oliver Whitcomb "of Bolton", int. 17 Dec 1754, Stow, MA; he was born 3 Oct 1732, Lancaster, MA. son of Jonathan and Rachel (Woods) Whitcomb.
- Abel Whitcomb of Harvard, m. 23 Dec 1769, Harvard, MA.
If she was born about 1733-4, then a marriage in 1754 would seem logical. Thus we believe that her husband was the second candidate above, Oliver Whitcomb.
