    Biography

    Sarah was daughter of John and Joane (West) White who emigrated to Massachusetts ca 1638. Her father listed in Salem records in 1638 with land in Wenham where Sarah was probably born in March of 1643. She was baptised April 9,1643, in the First Church, Salem, MA-probably closest to her home.

    The White family moved west to Lancaster by May 1, 1653 when her father is again listed in Lancaster records as the largest landowner in the town. Sarah's mother died the following year in 1654. Sarah married four years later to James Hosmer of Concord, a town not far from Lancaster.

    Married James Hosmer at Concord, Middlesex, Massachusetts on Oct 13, 1658. " James hosmer and Sara White were maried: the 13th octob 1658."[1]

    Her husband was killed by Indians on March 31, 1676 while defending the town of Sudbury just south of Concord. Sarah's oldest sister, Elizabeth, and her brother-in-law, John Divoll, and several of her nieces and nephews were also killed the month before when the Indians attacked Lancaster in Feb, 1676. Two of her sisters, Mary Rowlandson and Hannah White, were taken prisoner along with several of their children, and later ransomed back to their homes.

    Sarah remarried widower Samuel Rice the following December 13th, 1676 in Concord. The couple apparently moved to Marlborough, MA about 17 miles SE of Concord. He died and is buried there and it is presumed Sarah is also buried there. Two death dates are listed for her: December 22, 1709 at Ipswich, Massachusetts and Jan 5, 1711. Neither are documented.

(2) Dec. 13, 1676, as his third wife, Samuel, son of Edmond and Thamazine Rice, who came from Barkhampstead, in Hertfordshire, England, and settled in Sudbury in 1639, took the freeman's oath May 13, 1640; was one of the first proprietors of Sudbury, and was rated the sixth in the number of acres granted him.
