  1. Savage incorrectly says that Samuel Deming of Wethersfield, brother of Jonathan, married 29 March 1694 Sarah, daughter of John Kirby. Under Kirby (3:30), however, he says that John's daughter Sarah was wife of Samuel Hubbard, age 23 at his death in 1677.
  2. A probate order for distribution of Samuel Deming's estate, 6 March 1715/16, shows his widow married (2) Jonathan Church and names her "Sarah Churchill formerly Sarah Deming"
  3. Stiles identified her as a granddaughter of John Kirby (4)
  4. Torrey identified her 2nd husband as Benjamin Churchill
  5. Deming, Judson Keith, Compiler and Editor, Genealogy of The Descendants of John Deming of Wethersfield, Conn., (Dubuque, Iowa, 1904):
  • "Mrs. Sarah Deming married 2nd, Capt. Jonathan Churchill. . . According to the Kirby Genealogy, Talcott, and other authorities, his wife was Sarah Kirby, daughter of John Kirby of Middletown, the statement being based, probably, upon the fact that she was an heir of John Kirby. The land records of Middletown show that Sarah, widow of Samuel Deming, was one of the heirs of Mary Buck, and joined in deeding land which the latter received from the estate of John Kirby. The same records give a list of the grandchildren of Kirby, which includes Sarah Churchill, who was none other that the former widow of Samuel Deming, as shown by her signature to the distribution of Samuel's estate in 1729. These facts indicate that Mrs. Sarah Deming was the grand-daughter and not the daughter of John Kirby."
