    • Marriage place is inferred; Mille's father was living in Halfmoon at the time of her marriage.
    • The Morse Genealogy says "they settled in Gloucesterville, N. Y.". Glousterville is doubtless a mis-transcription of Gloversville, the largest town near Mayfield where they lived. [1]
    Notes 
    • The following is in the brief Osborn genealogy in the History of St. Albans, Maine:
      "Isaac Jr., born Sept 15, 1792; m. Millie Saliner (last name indistinct in records)."
      I have found no other record of this marriage, and this record probably refers to Mille Morse. [2]
