p. 22, #8: I have seen no credible evidence that Joshua2 WHITNEY had a wife named Lydia. Possibly this is a confusion with Jonathan2 WHITNEY, who did have a wife Lydia (JONES). Furthermore, his birth date is 15 July 1635, not 5 July 1635, according to Watertown vital records.

p. 22, #9: Watertown vital records do not show the birth of Caleb2 WHITNEY, only his burial.

p. 22, #3, ¶ 2, line 1: The age of freemen was not included in the record of their admittance.

p. 22, #14: Watertown vital records give Samuel's birth date as 28 July, not 26 July 1648.
