Friday Funny - Sales Marries Buys

I found this while looking for information on one of my ancestors. John Sales was born in Little Waldingfield, Suffolk, England and migrated to Charlestown, Massachusetts in 1630. In 1632, he was convicted of stealing corn, fish, and clapboards from a variety of people. He was sentenced to forfeit his estate to pay double restitution to those he "hath wronged," and to be whipped & bound as a servant for three years. His daughter was also bound for fourteen years to Mr. Coxeshall, the same man to whom her father was bound. He was married twice, first to Phillip Soales. There are no records of her in New England or New Netherlands. His second wife was Maria Sloofs, widow of Jan Sloofs. 

His children with his first wife were:
1. Phebe Sales, baptized in England May 1, 1626. 
2. Sarah Sales, baptized in England, July 27, 1628. 
There is no further record of Sarah but Phebe married twice. Her first husband was Theunis Nyssen. Her second husband was Jan Cornelison Buys. So Phebe Sales married Jan Cornelison Buys.
