    CUTLER - N. S. Cutler, Cutler Memorial and Genealogical History (1889), p. 39, states that Dea. Thomas CUTLER, Jr. (1719-1760) m. a wid. Sarah Fiske, dau. of Samuel Reade of Burlington, Mass. (b. 8 Oct. 1724), with her joined Lexington church 6 Dec. 1741, from there being dismissed 17 May 1752 to Western (later Warren), Mass.; and further that she m. (3) Elisha ALLIS. The CUTLER-FISKE m. is not in Lexington VRs , and “Western,” Worcester Co., Mass. was renamed Warren in 1834. Thomas CUTLER, Jr. m. instead Sarah FISKE (not Reade), b. Lexington 26 Sept., bp. there 24 Nov. 1723, dau. of Lt. Ebenezer & Bethia (MUZZEY) FISKE of Lexington. As Mrs. Sarah CUTLOR, she m. (2) (int. Warren) 10 Nov. 1764 Elisha ALLIS of Hatfield, Mass. Sarah d. Warren 25 March 1807 as “Wid. Sarah Allis, formerly w. Dea. Thomas Cutler;” g. s. (Pine Grove Cem., Warren Centre) gives her as ae. 83 (Warren VRs, 157). See Lt. Ebenezer’s 1768 will (Middlesex Probate #7573): “I give unto my daughter Sarah Alless Eight Pounds for her use During life, & then to go to her Children...” She could not have been a wid. dau.-in-law since Ebenezer had no married sons dying before 1740 (his only son to d. by then was Benjamin, ae. 2; a later Benjamin [b. 1742] was named in Ebenezer’s will). The children of Thomas and Sarah (FISKE) CUTLER include an Amos (named for Sarah FISKE’s uncle Amos MUZZEY); Ebenezer (for her father); Bethia (for her mother); Anna (for sister Anna [FISKE] BARRETT); Sarah (for herself, plus Thomas’s mother Sarah [STONE] CUTLER); Thomas (for the father); and Oliver (prob. honoring two bros.-in-law: Daniel OLIVER of Boston, husband of Sarah’s sister Bethia FISKE, and Oliver BARRETT, husband of sister Anna FISKE).

    HAMMOND - F. S. Hammond, History and Genealogy of the Hammond Families in North America, vol. 1(1902), p. 518-19, item #6: “Daniel Hammond” should be David, acc. to 1820 Rev. War pension application (R-8374) of second father-in-law Lemuel POTTER of Solon, Cortland Co., N.Y., and 1819 Delaware Co., N.Y. surrogate rec. of John PALMER (Liber C, p. 84) which gives admins. as David & Elizabeth HAMMOND. David HAMMOND’s first w., not identified in the printed work, was Susan HINKLEY; David m. (2) Elizabeth (POTTER) PALMER (whose g. s. in Solon Cem., Cortland Co., NY., gives her dates as Aug. 1778-22 Jan. 1852), dau. of Lemuel POTTER, wid. of John PALMER.

    Lemuel HAMMOND, b. 1819 (g. s. and fam. recs.), son of David & Elizabeth, was my great-great grandfather. His only known full sibling was Barton C. HAMMOND (who, appar. acc. to a g. s., was b. Cortland Co. in March 1820, and d. Vermontville, Eaton Co., Mich. 6 March 1891). W.W. Munsell, History of Delaware Co., N.Y. (1880), p. 270 gives 1813 as year of birth for Lemuel’s older half-bro. Burch HAMMOND, farmer. This correction reflects ten years’ work by Betty (Packer) Peasley, Leeta (Packer) Gridley, and Rosalie Hall of Castro Valley, Calif., descendants of David HAMMOND by both wives.

    NEXUS 9(1992):151-52: The husband of Elizabeth Zouche was Devereux Wolseley, not Sir Thomas (as per the cited sources, with thanks to John D. Kilbourne of Washington, D.C. for bringing this slip to my attention). There also seems to be no evidence, despite a contrary statement in F. L. Weis, W. L. Sheppard, Jr., and David Fans, Magna Charta Sureties, 1215, 4th ed. (1991), line 47, that Rev. Daniel Horsmanden or his wife Ursula St. Leger immigrated to Virginia. The immigrant instead was their son, Warham Horsmanden (1628-91) of Charles City Co., also mentioned in the article, maternal grandfather of the diarist William Byrd II of Westover. -GBR
