3. Death: 13 December 1730/31.

After Enoch's death, Sarah married (2nd), as his 2nd wife, widower Lieutenant Josiah Barber, son of John Barber and father of her daughter-in-law (via son Nathaniel), Rebecca (Barber) Drake (4), on 5 November 1701. Josiah had married (1st) Abigail Loomis, daughter of Nathaniel and Elizabeth (Moore) Loomis, on 22 November 1677 and had had 6 children, five of whom were mentioned in his will (Nathaniel, Jonathan, Aaron, Abigail, Rebecca).

 

Josiah Barber was employed as a wheel wright. His will states he possessed none of the property his wife, Sarah, had from her former husband: "For she disposed of the same unbeknown to me." Josiah bequeathed Sarah "a feather-bed, a mare and a cowe to be her own forever, and one year's provisions," besides a fair share of his estate. His will was proved 6 January 1729/30.

 

The estate of Sarah, widow of Enoch Drake (3) and Josiah Barber, was probated 4 January 1730/31.
