About Sarah Clark

Both Thomas Cooper and his wife were medical practitioners. Thomas in particular had considerable skill as a bone setter, being often called upon throughout the County of Hampshire, as there was no regular physician or surgeon available. On May 28, 1655, John Pynchon, writing to John Winthrop, Jr. about his wife's health, referred to "Goodwife Cooper who hath formerly tended my wife in her weakness," and, on March 7, 1659/60, Pynchon thanked Winthrop for "those prayers of cordial powder you sent my wife by Ensign Cooper."

Thomas Cooper married by about 1642, Sarah Slye, baptized at Lapwirth, Warwickshire, 29 Oct 1615, daughter of George Slye.

They had nine children:

  1. Sarah Day
  2. Timothy
  3. Thomas
  4. Elizabeth
  5. Mary Colton Stebbins
  6. John
  7. infant daughter
  8. Rebecca Clark
  9. John
