    • Sarah is said to be the daughter of John and Abigail Church of Dover, and she is also said to be the sister of Col. Benjamin Church who was present at the killing of King Phillip during the Great Swamp Fight. Both statements cannot be true as the sister of Benjamin Church was the daughter of Joseph and Mary (Tucker) Church.
