About Stephen Wing

Stephen Wing would not marry Oseah Dillingham until the fall of 1646. Of course we are all aware that Oseah was pregnant with their first child, Nathaniel Wing, because on March 2, 1647, Stephen Wing was brought to court because his wife, Oseah, had borne a child at an unseasonable time after their marriage. By now Sarah Briggs would be anywhere from six years old to possibly ten years old. By the time that Oseah Dillingham Wing died on April 9, 1654, Sarah Briggs was somewhere between twelve and sixteen years of age. This must be why most historians put her age at her marriage at fourteen. Stephen Wing married Sarah Briggs November 11, 1654, a short six months after the death of his first wife. (This date is based on the research of Kathryn Graham Wing).
