    Notes 
    • There are three errors in the description of Paul's family in Phelps Family of America by Oliver Phelps and Andrew Servin: 1. Zerviah Calkins' parents were Solomon Calkins and Zerviah Dewey not John Calkins and Sarah Huntington. 2. Phelps and Servin incorrectly state that Zerviah died in 1776 and that Paul then married Theodosia Root. 3. As a result, Phelps and Servin list the last four children (John, Solomon, Jedediah and Paul 3rd) as the Theodosia's children, but they were actually Zerviah's children as shown by Dimock's transcription of the records of the Town of Mansfield and the Second Church of Mansfeld, and by an image of a page from Willington Town records for the births of Jedediah and Paul 3rd. (See image of document below.)
