Birth*7 May 1755Sarah Wilbur was born on 7 May 1755 and reported in the records of Uxbridge, Worcester County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), It would appear from the fact that her maiden surname was not included in the record that the date information was obtained from her gravestone which read "Sarah Shove, third wife of Josiah" and likely did not include her actual place of birth.2
Marriage*Sarah Wilbur married Josiah Shove, son of Nathaniel Shove and Hannah Baxter.1,3

(Names mixed up and at least one generation skipped.) Samuel's son Josiah likely wrote parts of the obituary from his memory of stories his father had told him. And, of course, neither of them had any first hand information of anything before Samuel's birth in 1789.
