  • Notes 
    • Susannah, their fourth daughter, was born November 18th, 1783. She was married to Edward Brydon, and had two daughters. She died of consumption at her father's house in Truro, while her husband was confined in Jail for debt. Her corpse was taken into the Jail, that he might have the last sight of the remains of his beloved wife, while they were on their way to the cemetery for burial. This took place about the year 1806 or 1807.
