In this two Vol. set there is a story about the Indian Attack at Salmon
Falls a little village at the Piscataque River.
In this story they list the people the Indians took as captives, on the list
was a woman listed as Barnard, Benjamin's wife. Following the list the go
into an explaination of each person mentioned. The following is what they
say of this woman:
Barnard, Sarah (Wentworth)
"Benjamin Barnard's wife of Salmon Falls was rescued by Captain Church at
Fort Androscoggin in Sept. 1690. Benjamin died in Watertown in 1694. He
was of York company in 1685 and 1689, and owned land bordered by that of
Richard Tozier. In 1705 Paul Wentworth, Uncle of the Barnard children was
made their guardian."
This seems to show that Mrs. Sarah was daughter of
Elder William and sister of Elizabeth (Wentworth) Tozier. In 1698/90 Sarah
married Samuel Winch of Framingham"
