I'm searching for the marriage of Freeman Gross, Jr., and Sarah White prob. 1750-1756, and the birth of their daughter Susannah Feb 19 1757.

Sarah White descended from John White, Jacob White, Capt. Nathaniel, Elder John White. Middletown Upper Houses, by Charles Collard Adams, c 1908, p 660.

Freeman Gross d Aug 17, 1764 of yellow fever in Guadaloop, West Indies. Widow Sarah Gross married John Collins 9 Jun 1767 in Cromwell, CT, by Rev. Edward Eells. Cromwell First Congregational Church, 1715-1875.

Sarah and husband 2) John Collins had daughter Sarah b. July 23, 1769, who married Timothy Savage Nov. 26, 1789. Middletown Upper Houses, by Charles Collard Adams, c 1908, p 660.

I'm having difficulty in the Middletown area finding the marriage record of Sarah White and Freeman Gross, and the birth of their daughter Susannah. The records are not found with the Middletown Town Clerk. The Godfrey Library no longer does research, and I'm too far away to visit.

If anyone in the White, Collins, or Savage families have the family bible for Sarah White Gross Collins, or if anyone has suggestions, I would be most appreciative for a note. I will share my sources, too.

Freeman Gross is Mayflower line from William Brewster, and my family descends from his daughter Susannah. [Posted 5 Nov 2002]
