[961] The parentage of Sarah Winslow is unknown. The only speculation I can find, which is intriguing,
comes from a paid query in NEHGR v68 of April 1914 (see below). I include this speculation here
in the hopes of uncovering more genuine information one day. Note that the query advertising was
backmatter in the orignal print journal and does not seem to have survived conversion to searchable
electronic form at NEHGS.

"Queries: Winslow-Clarke"
Mary E. Sinnott
NEHGR v.68 p.xv (Apr 1914)
"Edward Winslow (Kenelm, Kenelm) of Harwich and Rochester, Mass., married Sarah -----,
born 1680/1, died Oct. 1767. Was she a daughter of Andrew and Mehitable (Scottow or
Scottoway) Clarke of Harwich? Sarah Winslow had a daughter Mehitable and grandchildren
Clarke Winslow and Scottoway Whitcomb, and the name Sarah was common in the Clarke family.
Andrew Clarke and Kenelm Winslow lived on adjoining lands at Harwich and were joint owners
of a gristmill. Andrew Clarke, Jr., married Elizabeth Winslow."
