About Sarah Bridgman

Sarah Lyman (b. 08 Feb 1619/20, d. 31 Aug 1688)

Another source states that Sarah LYMAN was the daughter of Richard LYMAN Iand Sarah OSBORNE and was baptized on 8 Feb 1619/20. Apparently they found the baptismal record so I will tend to go with this choice until further evidence is forthcoming. She was born about 1619/20 in High Ongar, Essex, England. She died about 31 Aug 1688 in Northampton, Hampshire, Massachusetts.
