3o8 Corrections and Additions to Published Genealogical Works. [July



CORRECTIONS AND ADDITIONS TO PUBLISHED
GENEALOGICAL WORKS.



Every gleaner in the field of genealogical research has met with errors in
printed volumes which, left by themselves, carry mistaken conclusions to the
end of time. This department has been inaugurated in an endeavor to correct
such spurious data. Readers are requested to forward for publication here
every such error, and such further additions to printed genealogies as are
found, that due correction may be made. The authority for the statement
must be furnished, with name and address of contributor.



43. Brasier — Correction.

In the Breser or Brasier Family in vol. xxvii of the Record, at
page 38, I find there are four children of Garret and Catharine
Hardenbrook Brasier earlier than the nine named, to wit.:

Bruyn Hendricxz and Lysbeth Janz Osterhout had:

1. Geertie, bapt. March 21 or 23, 1683.

2. Annetie, May 11, 1684.

3. Catharine, Jan. 31, 1686.

4. Hendrick, Nov. 6, 1687.

Hoes in V)^^. Kingston Records, calls the seventh child Ariaantje
instead of Anneke. capt. richard henry greene,

235 Central Park W.

44. Higgins-Whitehead — Correction.

Referring to my articles, appearing in the Record in the
issues of October, 191 5, and January, 1916, entitled "Richard
Higgins of Plymouth and Eastham, Mass., and Piscataway, N. J.,
and Some of His Descendants," and particularly to a statement
which appeared on page 21 of vol. 47, relative to Isaac Whitehead,
Sr., to the effect that he was born in 1648. This was an error
which crept into the printer's copy in some way and was over-
looked in the proof-reading. The letter "b" should not have
been inserted in the parenthetical date reference "(1648)." The
latter was intended to indicate a date at which Isaac Whitehead,
Sr., was a settler of New Haven Colony, Conn., and not as the
date of his birth. As a matter of fact, he took the Oath of
Allegiance to the laws of that colony at the General Court in
New Haven, i July, 1644, and he was probably at that time of
responsible age. It is reasonable to assume from the births of his
children that Isaac Whitehead, Sr., was born circ. 162-. The
compiler is indebted to Rev. Stephen Ward Righter for calling
this error to his attention. orra eugene monnette,

Los Angeles, Cal.

45. LuDLUM — Correction.

See Cock, Cocks, Cox Genealogy, First and Second Editions, p. 34,
fourth generation. The statement that Elizabeth, wife of Joseph
Ludlam was the daughter of Thomas Ryder of Southold, L. I., has
been found to be incorrect and it is reasonably certain that she was
a daughter of Henry and Eliphal (Wright) of Oyster Bay, N. Y.

46. Stevenson — Whitehead — Field — Addition.

It is stated in Thomas Stevenson and His Descendants (N. V-
Gen. and B tog: Record, vol. xiii, p. iig) that according to tradition.
Charity, the wife of Edward Stevenson, third son of Thomas of
Newtown, Long Island, was a Jenings, a sister or very near re-
lative of Samuel Jenings of Burlington Co., N. J. John, son of
Edward and Charity Stevenson, in his will datetl F'eb. 9, 1727,
mentions his uncles Robert Field and Jonathan Whitehead. We
know that Robert Field married the 24th day of the twelfth month,
1689, Phebe (Titus) Scudder, and that Jonathan Whitehead mar-
ried by license dated July 23, 1697, a Sarah F"ield. This latter is
spoken of as of unknown parentage in Daniel Whitehead and Some
of His Descendants {N. Y. Gen. and Biog. Record, vol. xxxiii, p. 102).
No better evidence, it seems to me, is necessary than the will of
John Stevenson {Abst. of N. Y. Wills, N. Y. Hist. Soc, vol. xi, p. 64)
to prove that Charity, his mother, was the sister of Robert Field,
his uncle, and likewise of Sarah Held the wife of Jonathan White-
head, his uncle by marriage. Consequently, Charity, wife of Edward
Stevenson, and Sarah Field, wife of Jonathan Whitehead, were
sisters, daughters of Robert Field of Newtown, and Susannah, his
wife. E. havil.\nd hillman, f. s. g.,

47. TiEX — Siex (Sikes) — Correction.

In the Record for 1888 (p. 55) is found the following item:
Jn" Roe & Elizabeth Tiex g'' 10, 1717, at Jamaica (licensed).
(From Rev. Payn's record.)

I spent considerable time in attempting to trace the ancestry
of Elizabeth "Tiex." At my request Mrs. Frost of Brooklyn ex-
amined the original manuscript. She made a "study" of Rev.
Payn's handwriting and concluded that the first letter is an "S"
and not a "T." The copy of Rev. Payn's records in the Long
Island Historical Society, prepared by Henry Onderdonk, gives
the name as 5iex. In explanation he wrote "Sikes." I am
unable to learn who she was. I have not found any family by
that name on Long Island at that early date or in Gloucester Co.,
N. J., where John Roe resided before his marriage. I have
wondered if you would care to call attention to the error in tran-
scribing Rev. Payn's records. clarence a. torrev,

the military defenses of the Colony; he lived at Plymouth until about 1630-32 when he removed to Duxbury, which

Deputy Governor in 1653; he was also a member of the Council of War and Treasurer of Plymouth Colony for many
years. He was on commission in 1642 to consult with Massachusetts Colony relative to plans for common defense of
the two colonies; and this duty probably accounts for his not having served as .'\ssistant 1643 and 1644.
