Father*Thomas Long2 d. 8 Nov 1711
Mother*Sarah Wilcox2 b. 3 Oct 1648, d. 3 Feb 1717/18
Birth*circa 1673Sarah Long was born, based upon her reported age at death, circa 1673.2,3,4
Marriage*She married John Colver, son of John Colver and Mercy Clark, probably in New London, Connecticut.1,5,2
Name-SpellingsAnother spelling of the COLVER surname found in our research was Culver. The original spelling of the name, and therefore the "correct" spelling, was COLVER. In early New England, where the name was spelled CULVER, it was usually the spelling used by persons not members of the family, especially in the copying of records or preparing indexes. As members of the family moved away from Massachusetts to Connecticut, Vermont, New Jersey and beyond, CULVER became more common with later generations. For the most part, after the fifth generation, COLVER had been replaced by CULVER.6
(Sister) EstateAfter Sarah's sister Jerusha died on 11 January 1722/23, her brothers William Long and David Ensign Jr. were granted Administration of her estate in Hartford County. Distribution to Jerusha's brothers and sisters was ordered, and they were named as: the heirs of Mary Bushnell, deceased, Joseph Long, William Long and David Ensign Jr., Sarah Colver, and Hannah Moore. Included in the probate file was a demand from John Colver, Sarah's husband, for 10s for reimbursement of money he had loaned to Jerusha, and also for wool and the combing of it.2
Religion*26 July 1725Sarah and John Colver were members of the Rogerenes, a small religious sect that originated in the vicinity of New London, Connecticut before the year 1700. They strongly opposed the established Puritan church, and initially held to a Seventh Day, Saturday, Sabbath. Over the years, however, they began to regard each day as equally holy. Their disdain for Sunday worship, which they expressed disruptively and aggressively, often brought them into sharp conflict with their neighbors. On Sunday, 26 July 1725, a party of eight Rogerenes, which included John Colver and his wife Sarah Colver, who was called their "singing sister," were arrested and committed to prison for traveling on the Sabbath. They were tried the next day and said they were going to Lebanon at the request of Mary (Colver) Mann, the Culver's daughter, who had requested to be baptized by the Society. She was baptized after they arrived in Lebanon, and a few days later they baptized her brother-in-law, Elisha Mann.7,8
RelocationIn the early 1730s, Sarah and John Colver moved with at least some of their children from the New London area of Connecticut to New Jersey with a group of Rogerenes. The group, which totaled 21 in all, included their daughter Sarah and her husband, Ephraim Tuttle, John's brother Jabez Colver and other members of the Culver's extended family. They settled on the west side of Schooley's Mountain, Morris County, and were the earliest group of settlers in that part of Morris County for whom there is any record9,1,10
Relocation1746 and about eleven years later Sarah and John Colver returned to Schooley's Mountain with their sons Thomas and Robert.9
Death*1756She died in 1756 in Schooley's Mountain at age 8311,12
Burial* and was buried in the Culver Burying Ground located on the farm of her son Robert at Schooley's Mountain.3

Rogers was imprisoned and spent some years there. He was influenced by the Seventh Day Baptists and the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) and opposed the Established Puritan church. Rogerenes initially held to a Seventh Day (Saturday) Sabbath, but over the years began to regard each day as equally holy. Their disdain for Sunday worship often brought them into sharp conflict with their neighbors. Increasingly they adopted a Pacifist stance, including war tax resistance, which further brought them the ridicule of the larger community. Some of the Rogerenes left Connecticut and migrated to New Jersey settling in parts of present-day Morris County. One such group settled in what is now the Landing section of Roxbury Township, New Jersey near Lake Rogerine, then known as Mountain Pond in about 1700. Another smaller group of Rogerenes in about 1734 settled on the eastern side of Schooley's Mountain near present-day Hackettstown, New Jersey.
