David Wright (Ahnentafel No:8 )
In one of his Royal Descents, Notable Kin, and Printed Sources articles, Gary Boyd Roberts gave Abigail Whittelsey as the wife of David Wright. This appears to be incorrect as other primary and secondary sources give her name as Hester or Esther. Also the Whittelsey genealogy that Roberts gives as his source gives Hester, not Abigail, as the wife of David Wright.
