3 There are important errors in the description of Paul and Zerviah's family in Phelps Family of America by Oliver Phelps and Andrew Servin. Phelps and Servin incorrectly state that Zerviah died in 1776 and that Paul then married Theodosia Root of Westfield, Massachusetts. Phelps and Servin list Paul's last four children (John, Solomon, Jedediah and Paul 3rd) as Theodosia's children. However, they actually were 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. Regrettably, Phelps and Servin acknowledged the birth records showing Zerviah as the mother, but chose to list the children as Theodosia's without providing any evidence or supporting argument.
There were two Theodosia Roots in Westfield at the time, neither of whom could have married Paul in 1776.
Theodosia(1) was b. 28 Oct 1757 in Westfield, the daughter of Solomon Root and Mary Church Root. Her father bequeathed his "daughter Theodosia Root 30 pounds" in his will written 1 Aug 1786 and proved the same year (ancestry.com erroneously says the will was proved on 1 Aug 1786). The use of her maiden name indicates that she was not yet married. She appears to have married a Solomon Phelps soon after her father's death. In 1804, the widow Theodosia Phelps of Westfield married Ebenezer Williams. The deceased was not Paul, as he was still living in Swanton, Vermont.
Theodosia(2) was b. 1 Jul 1759, to Martin Root and Eunice Lamb Root. She married Gad Root, a brother of Theodosia(1) on 19 Jun 1779. Theodore, their last child for whom there is a birthdate was b. in 1797. Theodosia (2) d. 23 Aug 1812 and Gad Root died 13 Nov 1824.
Phelps and Servin state that after Zerviah’s death Paul moved to Westfield and then to Pennsylvania where he died. Paul’s known movements do not fit that scenario. Paul was still living in Windham, Connecticut in December of 1794 when he advertised that he was going to grind salt, and he (“Paul Phelps of Windham, Windham County Connecticut”) bought land in Woodford, Vermont in 1795 where he resided until about 1803 when he moved to Swanton, Vermont. He lived in Swanton until at least 1814. There is no record of him moving to Pennsylvania after this. (All of his sons and his daughter Zerviah lived in New York for many years after 1814, and a man of his age very likely would have stayed near or with one of his children.)
Phelps and Servin also state Zerviah " was probably daughter of John and Sarah (Huntington) Calkins", but that is incorrect. Zerviah, the daughter of John and Sarah, did not grow up in the Lebanon Connecticut area, as her family moved to Dutchess County, New York when she was five or six. Her mother died in Dutchess County in 1744 as did her father in 1769. If she had married Paul, the marriage would have been very unusual, as she was thirteen years older than Paul. Also, she would have been 50 when Paul 3rd was born, a very late (although not impossible) age to give birth. Zerviah, the daughter of Solomon Calkins and Zerviah Dewey, was the same age as Paul and would have been 37 years old when Paul 3rd was born. Finally, Paul and the younger Zerviah were first cousins, lived in the greater Lebanon area, and almost certainly would have known each other. [emphasis mine] 
Family: Phelps, Paul (2nd) / Calkins, Zerviah (F75)

13 "Memorial of the Walkers" said that James was the son of Widow Walker of Rehoboth (I2744), mainly because James Walker and Samuel Walker presented the inventory of Philip Walker's estate at probate. Philip was the son of Widow Walker. However, recent scholarship suggests that James was not the Widow Walker's son for two reasons: (1) James' uncle John Brown mentioned James and his sister Sarah in his will but did not mention Philip, as would be expected if Philip was a brother of James and Sarah. (2) Philip's widow was Jane Walker, and it is likely that a clerical error replaced Jane with James. Thus, I have not included Widow Walker as James mother. Walker, James 1st (I2738)

29 (Research) There was a Martha Eakins b abt 1841 who lived in Burford, Oxford, Ontario (search Canadian Census at Ancestry.com). Could she be our Martha Eakins? Both were Canadian, but the birth years do not match perfectly. Our Martha's birth year was 1844 in the 1900 US Census and about 1842 in the 1910 Census.  Eakins, Martha (I964)
30 (Research) Need to reconcile conflicting information from the "Hyde Genealogy" and "Calkins Family in America". Hyde Genealogy says that Ruth Tracy Calkins died in 1783 in Lebanon whereas Calkins says that Ruth Tracy Hyde died in 1773 in Norwich and Elijah remarried to Mercy (unknown).  Hyde, Elijah (I607)
31 (Research) Need to resolve differences in dates and places between the "Hyde Genealogy" and "Calkins Family in America". Tracy (Tracey), Ruth (I608)
32 (Research) This Samuel Martin is a candidate to be the father of Samuel Martin (I27) (b. cir 1759) who married Silence Greene. This question could be settled by comparing Y-DNA evidence from descendants of Samuel (I27) with that of Samuel (I29) or his ancestors. Each DNA donor must also have well-documented genealogical evidence for his descendancy.  Martin, Capt. Samuel (I29)
33 (Research):
I have a tintype photo of a man, woman and child, and the tax stamp on the back is cancelled Sept 13 1864 Freeport Ill B.L. Pratt. Another copy of this photo is identified as "Aunt Augusta". However, G. C. Tanner's book says that Sarah Augusta died in 1852 in San Francisco.

The almost unreadable 1850 US Census for Wayne, Stephenson, Illinois includes the household of Augusta Hall (22), Mary (1), and John Tanner (19). This could be our Sarah Augusta Tanner Hall. Possibly George Hall had died or left. I have not identified the John Tanner age 19. It is possible that he is Sarah Augusta's father and his age was illegible or entered incorrectly.  
Tanner, Sarah Augusta (I206)
34 (Research):Assume Benjamin is a son of Theodia Keene by a previous marriage Keene, Benjamin (I484)
35 (Research):Constant and Silence probably moved to Bristol, NY about 1800. There were at least two Constant Simmons in Bristol at that time as shown by the following from the Town of Bristol History, History of Ontario Co, NY., Pub 1878, pg 238 - 241. (Transcribed by Dianne Thomas). Found at: http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ny/county/ontario/bristolhistory.html

"Constant SIMMONS settled on lot 46, about 1803. His son, Henry P. SIMMONS is an owner not only of the original homestead but of considerable additional lands." [Not our Constant, as he had no son Henry.]

"Contant SIMMONS, cousin to him just mentioned, came to Bristol in about 1797, and located on lot 49, where at present day, John JOHNSON resides. He erected a log house, which in its day took precedence as the finest in town. A tavern was opened, and continued for several years. Father and children passed their lives in the town." [Son Jonathan moved to Ohio in1832].

Simmons, Constant Jr. (I162)
36 (Research):Cothren's "History of Ancient Woodbury" lists several Ann Hurds. Two were born at about the right time, but one died young and the other married Jonathan Smith in 1753. Another Ann (b 1706, married Wait Hinman) could not have had children as late as 1765. All other Ann Hurds were too young. Hurd, Ann (I30)
37 (Research):Died single. Brewer, Israel H. (I490)
38 (Research):Died single. Brewer, Jane Ann (I491)
39 (Research):Died single. Brewer, Abigail (I492)
40 (Research):Family records indicate she had one child. Married name unknown. Martin, Norma (I89)
41 (Research):Family records indicate that Blanche married John Russell and had a son John. Identified this John Russell as Blanche's son because his mother's maiden name in the death cert. index was Martin, he was the right age, and he died in Morrison County. Russell, John Kenneth (I160)
42 (Research):Francis - occupation: Clothier - Francis was a clothier by trade and left a sizeable estate. His will asked that he be buried in the parish churchyard of Titchfield. - Francis Littlefield listed 3 siblings (2 brothers and 1 sister) in his will. Littlefield, Francis (I277)
43 (Research):From Early Families of Schoharie County, New York Birth year 1782 in church record and 1781 in family bible. Ottman, George (I629)
44 (Research):Hannah's surname Osborne is in LFM's notes on the family history, and Maud Latham left a note saying that Hannah's sister was Selina Keeler, wife of Hyram Keeler who lived in Detroit (Hiram was actually her son.) This enabled me to locate Hannah's father, Isaac Orsborn.

In the 1900 US Census for Michigan, Wayne Co, Detroit ward 14, district 150: Selina Keeler b. June 1827 in New York. Her father was born in Maine and her mother in Connecticut. Selina is in the 1850 - 1880 censuses, but her husband was named Peter A. Keeler. Selina had a son named Hiram. 
Orsborn (Osborn), Hannah (I306)
45 (Research):Her last name Nichols or Nickols came from her gravestone and from the Hyde Genealogy.
Her name was given as Bateman in History of Afton (see: http://www.anyheart.org/chenango/history/afton.html ) and as Beatman in Maud Latham's transcription of the Afton Enterprise. 
Nichols, Lydia (I588)
46 (Research):I have found Oglevie spelled Oglivee, Oglevee, Ogleve and Oglovee. LFM said it was spelled Oglevie. Tanner, John Oglevie (I159)
47 (Research):In 1910 she was living with her son-in-law Dewitt Ottman and his family in New Haven, Olmsted, Minnesota (US Census).

Birth date and burial information from Minnnesota Cemetery Inscription Index (Ancestry.com). There is a one day discrepancy between the dates of death in the Cemetery Inscription Index and the Minn Death Cert Index. 
Keeler, Laura Jane (I180)
48 (Research):Is this him: Minnesota Death Cert 1914-MN-018731 ?

Minnesota Cemetery Inscription Index
Township: Northfield
County: Rice
Name: Ulysses Tanner
Birth Date: 2 Aug 1832
Death Date: 30 May 1915
Cemetery: Northfield City
Section: D 11

The date of death from the Minnesota Death Certificate Index (30 May 1914) differs by one year from that in the Cemetery Inscription Index (30 May 1915).

Also, his birthdate on p 425 of the Tanner book (20 August 1832) differs from the date on p 451 (2 August 1832).

There is another Ulysses Tanner from Cannon Falls, Goodhue County. 
Tanner, Ulysses (I207)
49 (Research):Levi Greene's age in the 1850 US Census for West Bloomfield, Oakland, Michigan was given as 94. Need to check 1759 birthdate. Greene, Levi (I388)
50 (Research):Marriage date from a family tree in Maud's papers.
North Dakota Death Cert Index says MARTIN, JULIA F died 05/11/1956 in Stark Co., FEMALE 84 Years born 07/17/1871 North Dakota Resident Golden Valley Co. The 1900 US Census for Billings County, ND gives her birth year as 1871.

There was a Julia Farmer in Wilton, Monroe, Wisconsin who was two years old in 1870 and eleven years old in 1880 Censuses. This may be her. If so, what is her birth date? 
Farmer, Julia (I303)
