About Sarah White

Sarah Crow was born at Hartford on March 1, 1647, the daughter of John Crow and Elizabeth Goodwin.  Her father was an early settler of Hartford and Hadley, and became one of the larest landholders in the colony of Connecticut.  Her mother was the only child of Elder William and Susannah Goodwin.  Elder Goodwin was a fellow-passenger with Elder John White, in the ship Lyon and was one of the leaders in the settlement of Hadley.

Sarah married Daniel white on November 1, 1661.  She was only 14 years and 8 months old at the time of her marriage.  She was one of seven daughters, who married into some of the best families in the valley of the connecticut.  A high authority in such matters has said, "Those Crow girls made smart women." Mrs. Sarah White died at Hatfield on June 26, 1719, age 72.

Her inventory shows she was not only well supplied, but seems to have been a little extravagant, for that day, for residing in a small town.
