202. Sarah COMSTOCK84 died before June 1761.151

Signed deed with her husband in Nov 1755. Will of Thomas Comstock dated Jun 10 1761 makes bequest to grandson Charles, eldest son of daughter Sarah, deceased.

Sarah COMSTOCK and Jonathan COMSTOCK were married on 9 April 1750.151 Jonathan COMSTOCK79,101, son of John COMSTOCK and Esther JENCKES, died before October 1800.151 He was born in Providence Plantations, Rhode Island.151

Jonathan was "of Providence" at the time he married Sarah Comstock of East Greenwich. He was in the census of 1774 in West Greenwich and a Deputy from there in 1781, 1782, 1784, 1791.

Jonathan Comstock was on a list of freemen in Providence, 1751.

11 Nov 1755, Jonathan and wife Sarah granted land in East Greenwich to Job Comstock of East Greenwich.

Thomas Comstock, of East Greenwich, in his will of 10 Jun 1761, made a bequest to grandson Charles, eldest son of his daughter Sarah, deceased.

Jonathan then married Susannah Comstock Matteson, widow of Ebenezer Matteson and another daughter of Thomas Comstock.

Jonathan Comstock's will at West Greenwich was dated 23 Aug 1800 and proved 4 Oct 1800. Named wife Susanna. Sons John, Charles, Jonathan and his three youngest sons, Amos, Adam, and Cyrus. Daughter Rachel Comstock's five youngest children received a bequest - she had married Ishmael Comstock. Granddaughter Esther Kettle, daughter of Patience and Grandson Thomas, son of son John were also named in the will.

There is no known date for the marriage of Jonathan to the widow Susannah Comstock Matteson. Sarah was deceased before 10 Jun 1761 when her father Thomas wrote his will; she had been alive to co-sign a deed in November of 1755. The only child for a year of birth is known is John, b. about 1764, so Jonathan was certainly married to Susannah then. Most of the children have no birth years stated.
