Background
Sarah (Greenleaf) Appleton Haven (-1838) married first Dr. Nathaniel Walker Appleton, a Massachusetts physician (May 24, 1780). They lived at least partly in Boston, where they were members of the First Church. The names of five of their seven children appear in the baptismal records of that church: Charles, George, Mary, William Greenleaf, and Sally. Dr. Appleton died April 15, 1795. Sarah Haven next married Joseph Haven of Portsmouth, N. H. (between mid-1814 and mid-1815), a first cousin of her deceased husband. He was the son of the Rev. Samuel Haven and Mehitabel (Appleton) Haven, aunt of Dr. Appleton.
