Sarah Monroe Middlebrook (1793 - 1837)

Sarah "Sally" Monroe, my fourth great-grandmother, was born about 1793 to Joseph and Rebecca Gilbert Monroe.  She married Charles Ohara Middlebrook in 1820 at Wilton, Fairfield, Connecticut at the age of 27.  Before she married Charles Middlebrook she had a daughter, Jane, who is named in Charles' will as "Jane Monroe, a daughter of my wife Sally".  I have not found a marriage for Sally prior to her marriage to Charles.

Sarah joined the Wilton Congregational Church in Wilton, Connecticut in 1836 according to church records.  On July 8, 1837 she signed a will in which she named her daughter Jane, married to James H. Smith, sons Samuel, Charles, James Munroe, and daughters Mary Hoyt and Sarah.  The will was proved August 26, 1837.  Sarah died August 22, 1837 at the age of 44 and is buried at Hillside Cemetery in Wilton.
