About Sarah Day

Nicholas Day, Sr's wife was named Sarah, and she died about 1736. Her youngest child, Diana, married in 1718. Diana would not likely have married much younger than age 18, which would place Diana's birth at 1700. It is not likely that Sarah was older than 45 at that time, and thus Sarah's birth would not have been earlier than 1655. Even with a 1630 birthdate for Nicholas, he would have been 25 years older than she. Sarah would still have been up to 81 years old at her death.

"Sarah Day's will, dated October 20, 1730 and proved in 1736 is on file in the Hall of Records (Balt Co Wills, Box 5, Folder 87). Barbara Turner (WCRG44A) has Sarah's surname as Cox, m 1658. If she was 18 at marriage she was b. 1640 and died at age 90 to 96, and had her children 26 years after marriage, or age 44 to 59. Possibly marriage date was 1685. The following is a transcription made fom a photostat of the original will
