Update about blog

Come on over to my other blog, Alchemy of Clay and Living in Black Mountain NC, where the scenery and my ceramic arts life are combined. I've moved some personal blog posts, (as well as those that are about my ancestors) back here.

Sarah Tyler Granger, born in Oct 1768

Sarah Tyler was born sometime in October of 1769 in Chelmsford, Middlesex, Mass, to Phoebe Wood Taylor (Tyler? who had been born 1724 in Boxford, Essex, MA,) and Silas Taylor, ( who was born in 1720 in Andover, Essex, MA.)

Sarah lived in Newburyport, Essex, Massachusetts where she married, raised her family, and died on 6 Oct 1831 in Newburyport, Essex, MA.

Her husband, who has much more extensive family records was Joseph Granger. He was born on Dec 7, 1765 in Andover, Essex, MA and he died on 21 Mar 1847 in Newburyport, Essex Co., MA.  He had been son of Jacob Granger, who I wrote about on my blog HERE.

The Newburyport Grangers have many records of births, marriages and deaths.  But what can we guess about Sarah's life? 

Marriage: only January is listed...I can't find where Ancestry came up with that as a date for a record
Her children are recorded:
Fanny, born Oct. 1794 in Newburyport, Essex Co., MA. died 14 Jul 1856 also Newburyport
Sarah, born April 1796 in Newburyport, Essex Co., MA, died May 1846
Joseph born 25 Sept 1797 in Salem, Essex, MA, died 1880 in Calais, Washington, Maine
Mary, born 3 July 1799 in Newburyport, MA died date unknown in Calais, Washington, Maine
Farnham, born 2 June 1801 in Newburyport, MA (died 1837 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia 
George Tyler Granger (my granmothers' great grandfather see HERE) born 20 Aug 1804 in Newburyport, MA d. Galveston, TX (date unknown)
Daniel, born 19 Sep 1806 in Newburyport, Essex, Mass, died 8 Apr 1878 in Newburyport, MA.

She mothered seven children, all of whom lived to be adults...and only one of whom was not born in Newburyport, MA.

See Wikipedia for more information about Newburyport, MA at the turn of the century from 1700 to 1800, or my blog which gives a bit of the Granger history there.
