Tombstone Tuesday – April 3, 2018 – Sarah Dix Francis

Sarah Dix Francis

Sarah Dix was the daughter of Leonard and Sarah Dix who was born in 1658 in Wethersfield, Connecticut. Leonard and Sarah had seven children; Sarah (1658), Elizabeth ( 1660), John (1661), Samuel Dix (1662), Mercy ( 1665), William ( 1667), Hannah (1673)

Sarah married John Francis on January 16, 1680. Three hundred and thirty-six years ago, Sarah died on April 3, 1682. It was two short years after she was married. There were no children born to this marriage.  I can not help but wonder how and why she died at the age of twenty-four.  It was so long ago there is no way to know.
