Sarah (?)

     Sarah was born. Sarah married Thomas Townsend I, son of "Justice" John Townsend and Rebekah Almy, circa 1723. When a young man, by 1725, he had returned to Oyster Bay, and appears in records with his wife, Sarah, selling property. Oyster Bay remained his home until sometime after 1742 when he and Sarah are selling property in anticipation of their removal to “The Oblong” in what was then the Southeast Precinct, Dutchess County, New York. By June of 1746, he describes himself as being “late of Oyster Bay”. Later in 1749, in a document in which he sold land in Oyster Bay, he is described as Thomas Townsend, son of John Townsend, deceased, known as Road Island John, now of the Oblong, but formerly of Oyster Bay.
