    Notes 
    • Also Sarah Losey or Sarah Luce.

      Percy Crayon stated in his History of Morris County that Sarah may have been a member of either the Losey or Lyon families that were numerous in the region during the period.

      At some point in time "Losey or Lyon" was transcribed as "Losey of Lyon" and as such, this has since been mistakenly passed down as Sarah having been born in Lyon, France.

      No details are known of Sarah's actual maiden name or progenitors.
