Family:Humphrey Varney and Sarah Starbuck (1)

Facts and Events
Marriage[1][2][3][4] 2 Mar 1664 Dover, Strafford, New Hampshire
AFT 1729

According to the information on this page, the marriage and birth of the children all occurred after her death. This must be a different Sarah Starbuck, or else the deathdate is wrong. However, if Joseph died in 1663 and she married Humphrey Varney in 1665,(NS), She probably would barely have been able to bear 9 more children before passing child bearing age, say 1676.
