Note for:   Sarah Douglas,   27 JAN 1735 - ABT 1840         Index

Individual Note:
     Sarah Douglas was a fourth generation American. She reportedly lived to be 105 years old. Sarah, named after her mother, was about 16 years old when she married Richard Fancher on February 20, 1753, in Morris County, New Jersey. Both the Fanchers and the Douglases left Connecticut to move to Black River, the colonial name for Chester in Morris County. Most of the early pioneers came to Morris County as individual families, but the settlers at Black River came in groups from their home towns. Richard and Sarah may have been childhood friends, having met at the Congregational Church at Chester, where both families worshipped. Sarah's last child, Benjamin, was born about 12 days after the death of his father. For three years Sarah and her older sons ran the farm until Sarah chose one of the few options available to women in colonial days; she married again, at age 44 on October 22, 1781 to Jacob Davidse Schuyler, from the Mohawk Valley, New York family. He had served as a Major in Morris County during the Revolutionary War, and was a 51 year old widower who also had 12 children. Four of their children later married. Sometime following the marriage, Sarah and Jacob moved to Florida, in Montgomery County, New York, where it is believed Sarah died.
