Birth: 1671
Newport County
Rhode Island, USA
Death: Jun. 25, 1748, USA

Sarah was the daughter of Thomas Cornell, Jr. and Sarah Earle (Thomas's 2nd wife). She married Zaccheus Butts in 1689 in Little Compton, RI. Their daughter is Mary Butts, our ancestor. They had 4 other children: Sarah, John, Abigail and Elizabeth. Zaccheus deserted Sarah. When that happened their daughter, Mary was put in family of Joseph Palmer but was deemed "...not suitable to bring her up" so ordered her to be put in family of David Lake "whose wife is childs grandmother."
After Zaccheus died, Sarah married John Cole on August 15, 1712 in Swansea, MA. It was his 2nd marriage as well.
Her father, Thomas Cornell, Jr. was executed for murdering his mother, Rebecca (Rebecka) Briggs Cornell. It is an interesting mystery, to read more about it:
