  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: Email from Bruce Trousdale (undisclosed at example dot net) to the RIGENWEB mailing list, Dec 1997, gives surname as Smith. However, according to Charles William Farnham, in "John Smith, the Miller, of Providence Rhode Island: Some of His Descendants," (in _Genealogies of Rhode Island Families from Rhode Island Periodicals_ [Baltimore: Genealogical Pub. Co., 1983], 2:90), Mary's maiden name was Sessions; Smith was the surname of her first husband, Elias Smith.

      !DIVORCE: "In Superior Court, Providence, 22 Oct. 1760, Mary Smith, wife of Elias of Glocester, charged that her husband had eloped with one Abigail Herendeen and was granted a divorce." --C.W. Farnham, 2:90

      !SOURCE: "Descendants of Valentine Whitman, Sr.," email from N. Combs to Weldon Whipple, 3 Mar 2006. Cites History of Woodstock, Genealogies of Woodstock Families, v.8 (birth); Vital Record of Rhode Island 1636-1850 (marriage).

      !SOURCE: "Direct Descendants of Hezekiah Sprague," email from N. Combs to Weldon Whipple, 23 Oct 2007. Adds earliest death date (after 1782).
