Notes: Sarah Pray
Sarah Pray was born in about 1734, probably in Smithfield, Rhode Island, the third child and third daughter of Richard and Rachel (--?--) Pray of Smithfield and Scituate, Rhode Island. The children of Richard and Rachel (--?--) Pray are listed in the book Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island by John Osborne Austin and George Andrews Moriarty.
Sarah Pray was bequeathed all of the household goods and moveables in the will of her father, Richard Pray, which was proved on 10 November 1755. She also received one half of the proceeds from the sale of her father's real estate after the debts are charges were paid.
Nathaniel Horton married Sarah Pray in about 1755, and they had at least 11 children between 1755 and 1774 in Scituate, Providence County, Rhode Island. There may have been other children.
Sarah (Pray) Horton was mentioned in the will of her husband, Nathaniel Horton, which was written in 1814, and she was named an executor with their son, Nathaniel Horton. The estate was probated after the death of Nathaniel Horton on 4 May 1819, and the distribution of the estate, including the thirds set off for widow Sarah Horton, was approved on 20 September 1820.
She may have died shortly after 20 September 1820, probably in Foster, Rhode Island. Sarah (Pray) Horton was probably buried with her husband in the Jones-Hammon Lot in Foster, Connecticut.
