The three women highlighted in this story were chosen to represent a family whose records are all documented through husbands and fathers. They are from very different cultural backgrounds, French, Scots, and English, yet they are the true core of the American woman of their times. Diversity is greater now but it was always part of the country’s fabric.

The women had a geographic location near the sea. This ensured a contact with both Europe and South America from the earliest times, not only because of wars, but in response to the world of ships, ship building and trade. In the 19th century, few citizens of the new country were involved in news from abroad as were those from the ports of New England and the docks of New York.

Specific events from the life time of the three Sarahs are briefly described to show how modern times are clearly tied to the past. Each successive Sarah was affected by what happened to those who preceded her on the family tree. The Sarahs would also be astonished by the role of women in the 21st century. It is a premise of this book that the past and present are clues to the future and common themes run through history despite superficial changes.
