Sarah Yerkes (Herman2, Anthony1), eldest daughter and third child of Herman Yerkes by his wife Elizabeth Watts, was born in the Manor of Moreland, Montgomery (formerly Philadelphia) County, Pennsylvania, 15 July, 1716, married Jacob Hufty, of Abington.
He died in the latter part of 1750, or in January, 1750-51, as on the 30th of that month letters of administration on his estate were granted at Philadelphia unto his widow, Sarah Hufty, "during the minority of the minor children," her brother, Anthony Yerkes, being one of the sureties on the bond filed.
She was living 30 April, 1752, when she joined with some of her brothers and a sister in conveying to their brother, Josiah Yerkes, land of which their father had died possessed, and she is styled in the conveyance "of Moreland, widow." On the back of the administration bond the names of the children appear as follows:
33. Elizabeth Hufty.
34. Mary Hufty.
35. John Hufty.
