p. 108, #1336: Rebecca6 WHITNEY was born 15 Aug 1773 (not 16 Aug 1772), Willington, CT, according to Willington vital records.

p. 108, #1338, 1340, and 1341: The last two of these children are no doubt the same as the first, since the Barbour Collection of Connecticut, Vital Records does not contain their births, Molly is a common nickname for Mary, and the dates are almost identical. That raises the possibility that #1338 did not die young.
