SARAH HORTON (CONANT) 1619-1620????

[Ancestral Link: Marguerite Anderson (Miller), daughter of Hannah Anderson (Anderson), daughter of Mary Margaret Edmiston (Anderson), daughter of Martha Jane Snow (Edmiston), daughter of Gardner Snow, son of Abigail Farr (Snow), daughter of Mercy Winslow (Farr), daughter of Rebecca Ewer (Winslow), daughter of Rebecca Conant (Ewer), daughter of Nathaniel Conant, son of Lot Conant, son of Sarah Horton (Conant).]

Date of birth and, especially, death are in question, as her first child has the same date of birth and her second child just three years later. If the date's of birth for her children are correct, then she would have to have a date of birth of sometime in the middle to late 1590s to very early 1600s. Her date of death would have to be sometime around or after 24 Dec 1637, as that is the date of birth of her last child.
Original information for place of birth was given as: Devonshire, England - There is some dispute over the use of Devonshire instead of Devon, and there is no official recognition of the term 'Devonshire' in modern times. Theories have included that the 'shire' suffix is due to a mistake in the making of the original letters patent for the Duke of Devonshire, resident in Derbyshire. However, there are references to 'Defenascire' in old English texts from before 1000AD, which translates to modern English as 'Devonshire'. The term Devonshire may have originated around the 8th century, when it changed from Dumnonia to Defensascir.
