[F952]. Samuel STURTEVANT. [PC T4], [How are we Related].
Born about 1677 at Plymouth, Plymouth County, Massachusetts; son of (Dea) Samuel STURTEVANT [F1904] and Mary CORNISH [F1905] . (S3).
He married Mary PRICE on 20 January 1706-1707 at Plymouth, Massachusetts.
It is often reported that he married Mary Prince, but this is not correct. Part of the confusion is that Mary Price and Mary Prince were both born in 1685.
Mary Price was born on 25 July 1685; the daughter of Hugh Price and Mary Wright.
Mary Prince was born on 2 December 1685; the daughter of Isaac Prince and Mary Turner.
Massachusetts vital records show that Mary Prince married Joseph Gould (Goold) on 18 October 1713.
The correct marriage of Samuel Sturtevant and Mary Price is also shown in Massachusetts vital records.
Samuel was buried on 18 September 1743 at Maponsett Lake Cemetery, Halifax, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. (S3).
