Research Notes

When Sarah married William Robinson, the marriage bond was signed by William Robinson and her brother Benjamin Rives, Jr. The family connection to this particular Sarah Rives is further confirmed in that a witness signing Sarah's statement to indemnify the marriage was Isham Lundy, the son-in-law of Sarah's brother Benjamin Rives, Jr.
