History of Snowden Sargent, Slavery, and Abraham Lincoln:

Samuel (b.2 JUN 1733) in Norwich, Conneticut m. Hannah Baldwin on 26 SEP 1751 in
    Mansfield, Connecticut              

Isaac (b.2 DEC 1739) in Mansfield, Connecticut m. Phebe Baldwin    on 21 JUN 1759

Samuel (b.1744) in Boston. m.Bethany Smalledge

    William F., b. 1781, Asa b. 1788, Isaac F. b. 1789, Amos and three daughters,
    born in Hillsboro and vicinity and left a large posterity in New England,
    who no doubt are from one of the lines previously named.

Timothy (Chase?) . at Williamstown, Mass., who had sons, Timothy, Enoch, Ephraim, Junia, Ira and
    five daughters, of whom it is claimed he was born in 1751 "on the voyage from England," also that
    “he was born on ship-board in Newburyport harbor." It is quite possible… the place of birth and
    similarity of names, he was of the Amesbury line.

    m. Mar. 21, 1770, Mehitable Smith, and had sons

Do we have any males from the Jonathan Sergeant line of CT>NJ> PA and beyond that have tested their DNA? So far I have not seen any come forth and it would be interesting to get the profile on that descendant as he was not a proven ancestor of any Sargent in America...yet I do think he is related to other Sergeant's. I am sure there has to be Sergeant's still living in NJ that may be descendant's.
