About Sarah Folger (Gardner)

ii. Sarah Gardner probably was born about 1650 to 1653 at Nantucket, Massachusetts.(16) She married Eleazer Folger in 1671.(17) He was born in 1648 at Edgartown, Massachusetts.(18) Eleazer died in 1716.(19)

Sarah, daughter of Richard and Sarah, married Eleazer Folger, son of Peter and when Peter was imprisoned during the "Insurrection," the Gardner family showed indignation and were arrested. They failed to appear at the Court held April 22, 1677 to which they were summoned but did appear at the Court next following with this result: 'Sarah, wife of Mr. Richard Gardner, being legally convicted of speaking opprobriously and uttering many slanderous words concerning the imprisonment of Peter Folger who was imprisoned by order of the court, upon her good demeaning herself, and civilly being to the good satisfaction and likeness of the court, the Court think fit to remit all other fines provided by law in such case, but she shall be reproved and admonished to have care for the future of evil words tending to defaming His Majesty's Court.'" - History of Nantucket" by Alexander Starbuck
