    • Notes: 
    • Many sources list the month of Joseph Church's marriage to Deborah Perry as June. This may be due to a transcription error where the "4th month" was taken as June instead of April. Prior to 1752, this interpretation would have been correct, but in 1777 the calendar had changed and April was now considered the 4th month instead of June.
