To quote John Noyes of Calne "These thinges I receaved by hearsay, for I sawe them not, and therefor, if I have fayled in anything, it is because I have been misinformed myselfe, not because I delight to forge any Lies."
Well, ok. And maybe because I should proofread more carefully.
Surety- What do the blocks of numbers in the endnotes mean? The numbers indicate my estimation of the accuracy of the information presented. There are five potential numbers, ordered 12DPM.
1 Surety that the principal is properly identified
2 Surety that the second principal (if any)is properly identified
D Surety of the event Date
P Surety of the event Place
M Surety of the event Memo
The numbers approximately indicate as follows:
3 Primary source, reliable record contemporary to the event
2 Secondary source, probably reliable, primary source cited or known
1 Hearsay, tradition, memory of distant event, less reliable information
0 Guess, assumption, unreliable or unknown source
- Information known to be erroneous (not printed in these reports)
I've not done much with this for a while, and recently found that the free web provider I used had changed hands, and my website was no more. I expect rootsweb will prove more stable over time. I have more info than is currently in these pages, including some especially exciting information from letters belonging to a woman in the midwest, confirming our Johnson connection to Nathan in Bridgewater. Most likely any serious updates to this info will have to wait for winter. Please note that I no longer have email through att or freei.
Best wishes to all. Bill 6-4-2012
