WE are looking for Descendants of Edward Sargent or any of his sons . Edward was the known documented son of Lt John Sargent of Isle of Shoal and Saco(and many other towns in and abt the Biddeford, Casco, Saco Maine area late 1600's.) LT John was documented as dying of an Indian attack, @ Blackpoint, Maine, while looking for stray cows with his other documented son Benjamin in 1703.( John also had another son Joseph who died in 1703 but earlier by Indians). . Both John and Edward were select men of Casco, and Saco.. As you can see by the chart below, Edward , a known son of John, that lived, married 1st Elizabeth Plaistad, d/o Roger Plaistad, and Olive Coleman. Edward had many children with Elizabeth, and he removed to Newbury, MA, where Elizabeth died and then he remarried Sarah (Pierce) Bradstreet. Widow of Humphrey Bradstreet. Sarah was the d/o Joshua Pierce and Dorothy Pike. Some of the Descendants went into NH. I lose them after that. Nathaniel was called Dr in records. Anyone have further info?.
