p. 32, #38: Isaiah3 WHITNEY died 1 Jan 1711/2, according to Cambridge vital records.

p. 32, #139 & #141: These are the same John4 WHITNEY, and he is the one who married Rebecca4 WHITNEY and is listed as #107 on pages 47-48. He was the second child.

p. 32, #140: Isaiah4 WHITNEY was the third child.

p. 32, #142: I have not seen any evidence of the existence of this child, but if he existed, his birth can be guessed to be about 1702, filling a gap in this family. That would make him the fourth child.

p. 32, #143: Elijah4 WHITNEY was the sixth child. He married firstly Mercy HEALD, and then Rebecca WINSHIP.

p. 32, #144: Sarah4 WHITNEY was born 9 Apr 1705, and baptized 22 Apr 1705, not 22 Jul 1703, according to Lexington vital records, and thus was the fifth child. Andrew PARKER was born 14 Feb 1693, not 4 Feb 1693. For an account of their children, see Parker, Theodore, John Parker of Lexington & Descendants from Deacon Thomas Parker of Reading, MA, 1635-1893 (n.p.: Charles Hamilton Press, 1893), page 41.

p. 32, #145: Jonas4 WHITNEY was the eighth child. I have found no further record of him, and believe that he died young.

p. 32, #146: Abraham4 WHITNEY was the seventh child.

p. 32, #147: Mary4 WHITNEY was the first child.
