I'm not sure exactly when, but I willl certainly add the marriage of Jonathan Crosby on 5 August 1718 to that list. I'm planning a weekend visit to my sister in Newport, RI, the week b4 Christmas. Perhaps I can extend my trip by a day and get a day in at the archives. Someone else may be closer (I'm about 115 miles due north of Boston), and be able to check it before I can get to it.

Dr. Crosby was of Dover at the time of the marriage. The LDS Ancestral File says that Sarah was born in Dover, NH.

The LDS Ancestral File and International Genealogical Index say that her mother was Hannah WICOM (that is, WICKHAM). Regards, Robert Mr. Robert L.
