Notes for Sarah Grant
I had speculated that the Sarah Grant who married Josiah Parks is the daughter of Joseph Grant of Watertown, Massachusetts. Sarah would have been relatively old at the time of the marriage, and about ten years older than her husband, factors weighing against the correlation. Subsequent research shows that ths Sarah daughter of Joseph had married Stephen Palmer.

However, Josiah and Sarah had only four children, with the last birth occuring when Sarah was 41, which is not unreasonable. She clearly died as a result of complications of childbirth, on the same day as her last child was born.

Possible sources to check: Grant probates, Bowman marriage index, Parks and Grant deeds, local church histories, Cemetery records for gravestones.
Notes for Josiah (Spouse 1)
He was one of the petitioners in 1735 who asked that "the easterly part of Concord, northerly part of Weston, and westerly part of Lexington," be made into the town of Lincoln. This was later granted, in 1754. His will is dated 18 December 1764. The exact date of his death is not known.
