  • Notes 
    • Early in life he removed to Canada and for many years was not in communication with relatives and this gave rise to the report (among his cousins) that he had died unmarried and without issue. This statement seemed so well authenticated that it was published as a fact (in the New York and Genealogical Record, Vol. 36, p. 96) and only later discovered to be an error. He remained in Canada until about 1840, when he went to Michigan and lived there up to the time of his death. WBW
