p. 31, #123: Mary4 WHITNEY married Jonathan CROUCH on 1 Jul 1715, Concord, MA. They had four children recorded in Stow and Lancaster, MA.

p. 31, #125: The given birth date of Nathan4 WHITNEY cannot be found in any vital record. The day and month are those of his marriage to Mary HOLMAN, which is suspicious.

p. 31, #126: Susanna4 WHITNEY married Robert FOSKITT, 1 Mar 1715, Charlestown, MA. They had four children recorded in Lexington, MA.

p. 31, #32: Eleazer3 WHITNEY died 22 Jun 1731, Watertown, MA, according to Watertown vital records, volume 2, page 92.

p. 31, #128: Sarah4 WHITNEY was, indeed, the one who married Jonathan BALL, as listed under #79 on page 28. The BALL data there is correct, but incomplete.

p. 31, #129: Eleazer4 WHITNEY died -- Feb 1697/8 according to Lexington vital records.

p. 31, #130: James4 WHITNEY was born 20 Nov 1697, according to Watertown vital records, volume 2, page 10. No record of his death is found in vital records. Bond's Watertown, volume 1, page 645, says that he died 12 Feb 1697/8, Watertown. That may be so. If not, it seems possible that it was he who was baptized 28 Jan 1699/1700, and that Pierce has thus created from a single person three sons of this name, #130, #132, and #137!

p. 31, #131: Thomas4 WHITNEY was born about 1694, if his age at death is accurate. Apparently he had a second wife, Susanna -----.

p. 31, #132: This James4 WHITNEY was the one who married Mercy FLAGG, listed under #137 on page 53.

p. 31, #133: Mary4 WHITNEY was born 30 Aug 1692 according to Concord vital records, not 20 Nov 1697. She was baptized along with Thomas and James on 28 Jan 1699/1700, according to Bond's Watertown, volume 1, page 645.

p. 31, #137: This James4 WHITNEY was the same as #132, and possibly also the same as #130, both on page 31. It was his brother Jonas4 WHITNEY, #138, who was baptized 1 Jun 1708, according to Bond's Watertown, vol. 1, page 645.

p. 31, #138: Jonas4 WHITNEY was baptized 1 Jun 1708, Watertown, not 14 Jul 1723. On the latter date, he owned the covenant.

p. 31, #38: Sarah (WOODWARD) EDDY was widow of John EDDY, not Jonathan EDDY. He was born 13 Feb 1636/7, not 16 Feb 1636. See Bond's Watertown, volume 1, pages 203 and 658.
