Sarah Pierce was the daughter of Captain Joshua Pierce and Elizabeth Hall (the sister of Mary Hall March).  This aunt and her niece were buried side by side, and the stones look like they were made by the same carver. It is interesting that both women were married to doctors. 

Sarah first married John Winslow and had three children with him before he died in 1731.  She married second to Dr. Nathaniel Sargent.
