Snelling - Sedgwick 1600's Boston
Posted by: Dennis Sedgwick Date: February 17, 2002 at 16:08:00
  of 694

I see in the book "Colonial Families of the United States" the following:

JOHN SNELLING, of Boston, b. 17th Jan. 1624-25, at Plympton, St. Mary, England; d. prior to 1672, in Boston; came to New England with his uncle, Dr. William SNELLING, circa 1648; m. Sarah SEDGEWICK. Had a son:

JOSEPH SNELLING, b. 1667; d. 15th Aug. 1726; m. 19th July, 1694, by Rev. Samuel WILLARD, Rebecca ADAMS, d. 7th Nov. 1730, in Boston, aetat. 56 years, 7 months and 20 days.

I also see in the database BOSTON BIRTHS, BAPTISMS, MARRIAGES, AND DEATHS, 1630-1699 page 210 [year] 1693:
Joseph Snelling & Sarah Sedgwick were married by Rev. Cotton Mather June 8

Our Sedgwick records conclude that the marriage record is accurate, and that the Joseph Snelling to whom Sarah Sedgwick was married is the same one who married Rebecca Adams (We show him as the son of John Snelling, but don't know his mother.), and that therefore Sarah must have died soon after their marriage.

Can anyone shed any light on this? Are we talking about two Sarah Sedgwicks of two generations?
