  • Notes 
    • "The wife of Colonel Whiting [...] was ANNA RAYMOND, whose mother, a wealthy widow, with many slaves, had a plantation on Fisher's Island, in Long Island Sound, where she was once visited by the notorious pirate, Captain Kidd, who took from her plantation the supplies he needed, and then, to remunerate her, poured money into her apron, as the family legend tells, until the string broke!" [Memoir of the Life and Character of Mrs. Mary Anna Boardman, citation details below.]
