Leavitt, Morse Genealogy (1903, repr. 1979), p. 287: Lemuel Green MORSE & Azubah GAGE m. 5 Dec. 1808, not 4 Dec. 1804, as per 1985 abstract from marriage rec. of Upton, Mass. Their dau. Caroline G.

PATCH - E.B. Crane, Genealogical and Personal Memoirs of Worcester County, Mass., vol. 4 (1907), p. 22: Jonathan PATCH, b. 19 June 1707, is erroneously given as son of Isaac PATCH & Edith EDWARDS. Probate papers of Isaac PATCH (Middlesex Co. Probate #16776), the will of Benjamin PATCH (Essex Co. Probate #20690), and Littleton VRs, pp. 534-35, citing a “Note-book in the possession of Frank A. PATCH” show that Jonathan was instead a son of Benjamin PATCH (1673-1763) & Sarah (1673-1725). Submitted 3 Jan. 1991 by Miss Doris M. Amsbury, 320 Jones St., Mt. Clemens, MI 48043
PRATT/HAYDEN/BATES - G. W. Chamberlain, Genealogies of the Early Families of Weymouth, Mass., vols. 3 & 4 (1923; 1 vol. repr. 1984), p. 534; Weymouth [Mass.] VRs (1910), 2:149: Both sources note the marriage 3 May 1835 of Hannah Wade PRATT & Harvey HAYDEN of Quincy, yet both Chamberlain (p. 50) and Weymouth VRs (2:149) show her marriage 10 May 1840 to Jacob 20 Norton BATES. Chamberlain himself suggests (p. 546) that Hannah W. LEWIS, wife of Ephraim PRATT (III) (1807-1830) “probably married (2) at Weymouth, 3 May 1835, Harvey HAYDEN of Quincy,” a conclusion also reached by Waldo C. Sprague in Genealogies of the Families of Braintree, Massachusetts, 1640-1850 (microfilm, NEHGS, 1984), card 2291. Submitted 28 July 1991 by Frederic R.
