"Sarah the wife of Thomas Bowater Departed this Life the 26'th of the 2'd month 1692."
It appears from the burial record Sarah was first buried at the Chester Quaker Friends Burying Ground. Originally located at Edgemont Ave between 6th & 7th Streets in Chester, Delaware Co PA, a 1938 picture of this cemetery can be seen online at oldchesterpa.com. Burials there were reinterred at Chester Friends and Chester Rural, both in Delaware Co PA. Could only find a partial listing with 133 names of the total 456 burials that were moved.
Note: This Sarah Edge was confused prior with another Sarah Edge who married John Beals and is also my Gr-Grandmother. This has been corrected. My apologies.
