The RootsWeb background information doesn't fit. It says that Henry SATER & Elizabeth NYE m. 28 Aug. 1628, Sussex, & had son Alexander, b. 1670. If Elizabeth was 18 at marriage, she would have been 60 in 1670. Thus, if this is the right line, there's probably a generation missing. Another entry says that Elizabeth was born in 1626, so perhaps she was a second wife, still pretty old to have a son in 1670, so perhaps the birth year of Alexander SATER, b. 1670, is also wrong. He would have been pretty young to marry Sarah GODFREY 3 Jan. 1686/7, Sussex.
