United States Census, 1790; his family consisting of himself, one male under
16 years and four females.

He was a member of the Society of Free Masons.

In sending me the marriages of his children, the now living members of his
posterity have not been able to give me two lists that are alike as to the wives
and husbands. The only thing I can do is to give all sent and let who will say
which is the correct one.

knowledge of him, his marriages and children. They all agree that he had
three children by a first wife, whom some of them name as "Dorothy Dunn, born
February 15, 1771."
