  • 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."
