    The author states that Sarah Pike wife of Thomas Baker was the daughter of Rev John Pike of Salisbury and Dover and Sarah Moody his wife without citing any evidence to support this claim. However, we know that the Rev John3 Pike (Robert2, Robert1) of Salisbury and Dover has no record of ever being near Roxbury nor does any other member of his family. He kept a detailed journal including information about his children and no mention is included of a daughter Sarah Pike or Thomas Baker (Collections of the New Hampshire Historical Society). Rev John Pike died testate in Dover and his will makes no mention of a daughter Sarah or son-in-law Thomas Baker. It seems perfectly evident that he had no daughter Sarah.

    However, another family, that of James1 Pike of Cambridge and Reading did have interactions in Roxbury. His supposed son John2 Pike married Elizabeth Englesby and had several children recorded Roxbury and Dedham. John2 Pike's daughter Elizabeth had an only child, Elizabeth, who was orphaned before age four, was "bequeathed" by her mother "to my loving brother [in-law] and sister Thomas and Sarah Baker" [Source: Donna Valley Stuart, "Some Descendants of George Farley" NEHGR,Vol 136, pp 43-61]. Clearly Sarah Pike baptized in Roxbury on the same day as several other Pike children was sister to Elizabeth Pike and daughter of John2 Pike and Elizabeth Engleby of Roxbury. See also the probate records of John2 Pike on his profile whose admin papers were signed in the presence of Thomas Baker and whose inventory was presented by John Baker.
