  1. 1.0 1.1 John Webster, in Barbour, Lucius Barnes. Families of Early Hartford, Connecticut. (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1977)

    "Sarah (Webster) bp Sept 29, 1678 (2 Ch Rec) m (_____) Talcott"

  2. 3. Lieut. Benjamin3 Talcott, in Jacobus, Donald Lines, and Edgar Francis Waterman. Hale, House and Related Families, Mainly of the Connecticut River Valley. (Hartford: The Connecticut Historical Society, 1952)

    "Benjamin's second wife, mentioned though not by name in his will, may have been Sarah Webster, baptized at Hartford, 29 July 1678, who was described as 'Sarah Talcott, widow,' in a late agreement to settle her father John Webster's estate in 1728. Her Talcott husband is not identified in the printed genealogies of the Webster or Talcott families. Since Benjamin Talcott died in 1727, his hitherto unidentified second wife was a widow in 1728 and hence is available for this identification.

    Left a widow in 1727, Sarah (Webster?) Talcott may have become the second wife of Joseph3 Hollister, who died 5 July 1746 leaving a widow Sarah. Ebenezer Webster of Hartford was surety on the administrator's bond in the estate of Joseph3 Hollister, and Ebenezer Webster was brother of Sarah Webster. Widow Sarah Hollister was buried at Hartford, 12 Feb. 1769."

  3. The marriage to Benjamin Talcott is not proven, but is at least quite possible. A subsequent marriage to Joseph Hollister seems unlikely. That would require a man whose wife (Ann Burnham) died in 1712 leaving him with five or six children to wait until after 1727 (Talcott's death) to remarry.
