Birth - Marriage - Death

ChildSarah Wolcott was born on 7 June 1735, in Windsor, Hartford Co., Connecticut.6
BrideSarah Wolcott married Elisha Steele Esqr., son of Rev. Stephen Steele and Ruth Porter, on 26 April 1758 in Tolland, Tolland Co., Connecticut Colony, New England. The entry in the Tolland town records has Sarah's name as MRS. Sarah Wolcutt, of Windsor which apparently is in error. No Widow Sarah Wolcott has been found in the appropriate timeframe. A Steele family genealogy says Sarah was the daughter of Roger and Mary Walcott of Windsor; this same genealogy says after Elisha's death Sarah married Elijah Chapman which is incorrect. A Wolcott genealogy agrees Sarah is the daughter of Roger and Mary Wolcott and attribute only one marriage to her, that to Elisha Steele.7,8,9
DeceasedShe died on 28 February 1812 in Tolland, Tolland Co., Connecticut, at the age of 76.10,11
