Sarah Bulkeley

(August 12, 1640 - 1723)

Sarah Bulkeley was born in Concord and left with her family for Connecticut because of a break in the Concord religious community. Both her grandparents were pastors, famous in their time: John Jones and Peter Bulkeley. Sarah married Eleazer Brown. She was mentioned in her mom's will and inherited several books. She was a widow at about age 73 and lived 10 more years as a widow. Sarah and Eleazer were buried in a cemetery in New Haven. At some point all the headstones and remains were moved (with relative permission) and a monument was placed in the burial spot.
