About Sarah Jackson

Her death should be listed as after June 1684. In June 1684, she was called to court in New Haven being complained on for attempted murder of her husband (deceased 1683):

New Haven Court Records, Volume 1, page 148. Are these records online? I find Ancient Town Records Volume 1 & 2 but it is not there, that I can see.

I found this in two Genealogy Biographies: 1. Comstock & 2.Nathan Grier Park.

George Beaman/Beamon of Derby, son-in-law to John Jackson deceased, complained of Sarah Jackson widow on 24 Jun 1684 for attempting to murder her said husband. The fact was owned by her! but many testimonies were presented to prove her under some kind of distraction. Considering that she was at times crazy in her head, and subject to her age and sex to bodily infirmity, she was fined five pounds for her attempt.

This profile is often confused with Ann Bourne, wife of Nehemiah Smith (probably unrelated to George). Most of the sources are undocumented/unsourced trees. Can we find any "more reliable" sources?

Another Geni member wrote this about a Sarah Ann Bourne.

There was a Sarah Ann Bourne, daughter of Thomas Bourne and Elizabeth Rouse. This Sarah Ann married Nehemiah Smith and they had children:

  • Elizabeth (1 of 2) who married a man -surname Dennis.
  • Mary Smith who married a man -surname Raymond
  • Mercy Smith (disputed, Mercy Smith Benham of New Haven is a daughter of George).
  • Elizabeth (2 of 2) who married a man -surname Ely
  • Nehemiah Smith
  • Mehitable Smith married a man -surname Abell
  • Ann Smith.

So can there be two Sarah Ann Bournes in New Haven of two different Bourne couples who married two different Smiths in New Haven?
