  • Notes 
    • "The evidences that Jerusha and Nathaniel were brother and sister are family statements of the descendants taken down around the year 1880 by the late Professor Arnold Doane of Barrington. The chief grounds for making them children of Enos Knowles are that Enos had a son not otherwise accounted for, that Jerusha and Nathaniel could not possibly have been children of Enos's brother Samuel or cousin Cornelius, that Nathaniel named a son Enos -- a name almost unused either in Eastham or Barrington, and that the name Jerusha prevailed among the proved descendants of Enos." [Charles Thornton Libby, citation details below.]

      Her first husband was Simeon Crowell, who was lost at sea in the summer of 1768.
