    Cathy Kuhl has found two of Paul's business advertisements.
    On 25 Sep 1791 Paul advertised his clothing business in in Windham at the old powder mill. Cathy has placed the mill on the north bank of the Willimantic River, near the intersection of Main and Dunham streets.
    In Dec 1794 Paul announced that he would grind salt (presumably at the old powder mill).

    Notes 
    • Cathy Kuhl has pointed out that the winter of 1751-52 was disastrous for 3 year old Paul Jr. and his siblings. They lost both parents, their grandfather, and their uncles Jacob and Jedediah Jr. The only adult Phelps male still living was their uncle Silas.
      The dead were:
      Jacob, son of Jedediah d. 22 Dec 1751, age 38.
      Jedediah Sr. d. 13 Feb 1752, age about 63.
      Jerusha, wife of Paul Sr., 17 Mar 1752, age 31.
      Paul Sr., died 13 Apr 1752, age 34.
      Jedediah Jr., d. 1 Oct 1752 age 25.

      The next year Solomon, son of Jedediah Jr., died 7 Apr 1753, age 19 months.

    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's 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.
