About Sarah Babcock

From Jerald L. Chittenden in

"The LDS ancestral file for Edward Denison (1PSM-5NK) and Elizabeth Welde (9L20-BG] has one child, a daughter, Sarah Denison (1879-0VW), who married James Harris, and this is the ancestry reflected by my file."


  • "There is apparently a Denison genealogy that has Sarah Denison (d. of Edward and Eliz. Weld) m. to James Harris in 1666. This Sarah is supposed to have been born in 1640 (but her parents were married March 1640/41). Also, from Michael Gray I have that the NEHGR, v. 46, pedigree of Denison shows Sarah Denison in the 9th birth slot for Edward's children (same as Savage). This would place herbetween Hannah (b 1655) and Deborah (b. 1660). Looks like the Denison genealogy is mixed up, and I think, wrong. I think I have it right here, and confirmed by 2 sources (Savage and the Gen. Memoirs of Worchester County)."

Seven of their children were baptized at the Old South Meeting House, Boston, in 1683.

From Savage's Genealogical Dictionary

JAMES HARRIS, Boston, by w[ife]. Sarah had Sarah, b[orn]. 2 Mar. 1668; James, 4 Apr. 1673; Margaret, 16 Jan. 1674, d[ied]. soon; Mary, 3 Feb. 1677; Deborah; Elizabeth; Asa, 10 Nov. 1680; Hannah, 22 Apr. 1682; all bapt[ized]. 1683; Ephraim, 17 Dec. 1684; Mary, again, 11 Oct. 1686; Ephraim, again, 11 July 1688; and, perhaps by ano[ther]. w[ife]. James. Eight of this name had, in 1828, been gr[aduated]. at Harv[ard]. and none at Yale, four at Dart[mouth]. sixteen at the other N[ew]. E[ngland]. and N[ew]. J[ersey]. coll[eges]. as Farmer found.


  • United Ancestries (CD100, Automated Family Pedigrees #1] has Capt. George Denison and Bridget Thompson as the parents of Sarah. It shows she married a Thomas Stanton in 1660 prior to her marriage to James Harris in 1666. LDS has a file for Thomas Stanton and Sarah Denison. It states they were married 1658 at Stonington, New London, Connecticut, and that she was the daughter of George Denison and Bridget Thompson. It states she was born 20 March 1641, christened 20 March 1642, Roxbury, Suffolk, Massachusetts, and died 19 Dec 1701 at Stonington, New London, Connecticut. It does not, however, show her as being the wife of James Harris. Thomas Stanton died in 1718.
  • The LDS ancestral file for Edward Denison (1PSM-5NK) and Elizabeth Welde (9L20-BG] has one child, a daughter, Sarah Denison (1879-0VW), who married James Harris. However this same Sarah is said to have married Thomas Robinson of Boston, who died in 1710.
  • As of Sept 2012 Geni will reflect Sarah (Denison) Harris as "parents unknown."
