  2. The birth date of Sep 1772 is repeated on the Find A Grave memorial, but there is no image, nor a transcription, so it amounts to nothing more than an unsourced website. Since no birth of a Sarah Davidson is found anywhere in Massachusetts in the period 1765-1772, and since the age at death doesn't calculate to Sep 1772, the basis for this date is suspect.
