    Notes 
    • Edward moved his family from Flushing to White Plains near his brother, Jonathan. He then migrated northward and settled at Nine Partners, Dutchess County shortly before the Revolutionary War, saying, "There will be war & the British will land here, so we will remove." There he raised his family and was a prominent member of the Society of Friends in that place.

      In the war of the American Revolution three of the seven sons of Edward were loyalists, viz., Richard, Thomas and Obadiah. The latter two of the sons took an active part in the British service, and two of the sons of Richard are said to have served in loyal colonial regiments. The remainder of Edward's family apparently were non-partisan, being Quakers.

      Nine Partners is now called Washington Precinct.
