1. Ebenezer Mott

Sarah Collins 339

  • Born: 18 Jun 1709
  • Marriage (1): Ebenezer Mott before 15 Mar 1743/44

bullet   FamilySearch ID: L4HC-YS9.


bullet  General Notes:

Her birthdate is recorded in the Collins genealogy, but she first makes her appearance in the record books as the wife of Ebenezer Mott in South Kingston, RI in 1744. There 'Ebenezer and Sarah Mott' witnessed the marriage of her brother John.

Certificates issued by Quaker monthly meetings to move appear over the next several years locating her from South Kingston to Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey to the Burlington Monthly meeting when she and her husband took up their final residence in Mount Holly, New Jersey. She appears on her husbands will of 1770, but there is little else known about her. There was a family tradition that she was a great Quaker preacher who was memorialized by the Westerly, RI Monthly Meeting in their published (1814) memorial to the saints. Examination of that document concludes that this was a different Sarah Mott.

bullet  Research Notes:

Mott family tradition mentions her as a Quaker preacher of great reknown whose life was memorialized in a Quaker memorial to the 'Saints' from the Westerly RI Monthly Meeting, a published book of 1816/20. This is no doubt another Sarah Mott, for the published memorial (Memorials Concerning Several Ministers and Others, Deceased;... New York, 1814, reprinted London 1816)(Swarthmore collections) indicates a Sarah Mott who died 1783 at the age of 47.

Sarah married Ebenezer Mott, son of Edward Mott and Penelope Niles, before 15 Mar 1743/44. (Ebenezer Mott was born about 1714 in Rhode Island and died in Aug 1770 in Mount Holly, Burlington, New Jersey, United States 447.)

bullet  Marriage Notes:

Critical marriage to a number of lines above. The proof of this marriage that Sarah, the daughter of John (William) Collins, married Ebenezer Mott and then had John Mott is tenuous.
