Sarah Cowing1,2,3

b. 21 December 1717, d. 15 July 1755
Father*Israel Cowing4
Mother*Lydia Balch5
Birth*21 December 1717Sarah Cowing was born on 21 December 1717 in Scituate, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).2,1,3
Marriage*1 December 1746She married John Hooper, son of John Hooper and Elizabeth Packard, on 1 December 1746 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).5,6
(Daughter) Research NotesThe information presented in the Hooper Genealogy may not be correct. What we have learned so far is that a daughter named Sarah Cowing was born in Scituate to a father named Israel Cowing on 21 Dec 1717 and that a Sarah Cowing, daughter of an Israel Cowing, died in Scituate on 5 Jan 1718. No other Sarahs were found in the Scituate records and, of course, the Sarah who died may not have been the same Sarah who was born the month before. Six years after the death of the daughter Sarah, Israel Cowing and Lydia Balch were married in Scituate in 1723/4. John Hooper did, in fact, marry a Sarah in Bridgewater in 1746. She was identified as Sarah Cowing in Mitchell's Bridgewater History in both the Hooper and Cowing sections and as Sarah Carver in the Bridgewater vital records under Hooper. Just to confuse things further, their marriage was not included in the Bridgewater vital records book under either Cowing or Carver.4,2,7,8,3,9
(Wife) Death7 May 1750Sarah became a widow when John Hooper died on 7 May 1750. He was only 24 years old.5,10
Death*15 July 1755She died on 15 July 1755 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), at age 37.5,11

All three of their daughters lived in the household, as did Annie's husband, and all members of the household could read, write and speak English. Their daughter Annie was enumerated as Annie L. Jack. She had been born in Pennsylvania in April 1867, was 33 years of age and worked as a dressmaker. She had been married for 12 years to Hugh M. Jack, who also lived in the Cramer household. He had been born in Ohio in April 1862, was 38 years of age and worked as a machinist. Both of his parents had been born in Scotland. Hugh and Annie had had no children.
