Notes

There is no direct evidence to include Clotilda as a child in this family. However, in the 1810 census there was one female 10-15 (Mary), and 2 females 0-9 (Margaret and ?). Catherine and Sarah hadn't yet been born. Also, the DAR cemetery transcription for Common Street Cemetery in Watertown lists first Charles Fisher (Clotilda's husband), then Elijah, Margaret and Sarah Whitney, followed by Clotilda, and finally Sarah Hagar (Margaret's daughter). This presents a strong case that Clotilda is a child in this family.
