    "(2683) … Sarah (Hoyt),4 b. May 6, 1686; m. _____ Nims. She was taken captive, with others of her family. Her captors were about to resort to force to compel her to marry a Frenchman, when she offered to marry any one of her captive neighbors who would accept her hand, and thus rid her from her troublesome friends. Mr. Nims accepted the offer, and they were united forthwith. Both were afterwards released from captivity, and returned to their native town, where they reared a large family."
