    Notes:

    "The evidences that Jerusha and Nathaniel were brother and sister are family statements of the descendants taken down around the year 1880 by the late Professor Arnold Doane of Barrington. The chief grounds for making them children of Enos Knowles are that Enos had a son not otherwise accounted for, that Jerusha and Nathaniel could not possibly have been children of Enos's brother Samuel or cousin Cornelius, that Nathaniel named a son Enos -- a name almost unused either in Eastham or Barrington, and that the name Jerusha prevailed among the proved descendants of Enos."

A Gentleman who was greatly belov'd and respected, and will be much lamented: As one of His Majesty's Justices, Col. Knowles was strictly Impartial in the Administration of Justice; was always for making up of Differences between Man and Man as soon as possible, and with as little Charge as might be; and was remarkable both for preventing and healing of any long and uncomfortable Debates among his Neighbours and others; and his Judgment greatly sett by; and that which crown'd all, A Man of strict Piety and Integrity."

    Notes:

    Her first marriage was to Henry Young (1672-1706), son of John Young and Abigail Howland. She may have been a daughter of Jabez Snow (1642-1690, son of Nicholas Snow and Constance Hopkins, daughter of Stephen Hopkins of the Mayflower), and his wife Elizabeth Smith (1648-1732), who had a daughter Sarah born at about the right time. Jonathan Sparrow and the present Sarah did name a son Jabez. Unfortunately for proving this, the distribution of Jabez Snow's estate on 8 Apr 1695 lists the sons by name but the six daughters only by reference, and the Sarah who was the daughter of Jabez and Constance was married at this point. For what it's worth, as of 15 Oct 2003 the General Society of Mayflower Descendants has stopped accepting membership applications based on descent from Sarah the wife of Jonathan Sparrow.

    Children:
    1. 7. Sarah Sparrow was born on 20 Jul 1708 in Eastham, Barnstable, Massachusetts; died in 1784 in Eastham, Barnstable, Massachusetts.
