Of the poets collected in this group, Sarah Whipple Goodhue was the first native-born writer. She was born into a middle-class family of merchants; she married Joseph Goodhue (16391697), who was to become a leader of Ipswich, her native town. Her volume, The Copy of a Valedictory (1681), a religious and monitory book written in anticipation of her death, was published after she died giving birth to twins.
