    • Most sources list Joseph Allen and Mary Baker's marriage date as 11 MAR 1736/1737. The marriage date listed in the Barbour Collection, which also includes the minister's name, is 11 MAR 1730. It appears that the error is with the Barbour Collection, but it's possible that this is the correct date.
