      Thank you for sharing this information. I agree - seems almost certain Samuel Arnold's wife was Sarah Holmes.

      I have a publication by Frederick L. Weis, - "The Colonial Clergy and the Colonial Churches of New England". On page 21, Samuel ARNOLD, b. England, 1622; was at Sandwich, 1643; later lived at Yarmouth where he was Rep.Gen.Ct., 1654-1656; original proprietor at Marshfield;
      Ord.Marshfield, 1658; sett.Marshfield, 1657-1693; d. Marshfield, Sept 3, 1693, a.71.

      This has to be our Samuael ARNOLD, right? Following this is Samuel Arnold, Jr.., b. Yarmouth, May 9, 1649, son of Rev. Samuel and Elizabeth Arnold; Ord. Marion (1st Chh., Rochester), Oct 13, 1703; sett. Marion, (1st Chh., Rochester), 1684-1707; d. Rochester, Feb. 11, 1708/9.

      And I just looked at my "Second Torrey Supplement". There before my wondering eyes -- p. 4: ARNOLD, Samuel (2) & Sarah (2) HOLMES; m c1671 Marshfield (REG 145:376).

      Again thanks for everyones help with connecting Sarah HOLMES to Samuel ARNOLD.

      Guess we don't know Elizabeth's surname?
