  • Notes 
    • From Ancestors and Descendants of Andrew Lee and Clarinda Knapp Allen:

      "John Waldron's two oldest daus. Sarah and Bridget, ages 9 and 7, were killed by Indians. They were turning out the calves into a pasture near the house, when nine Indians suddenly appeared, seized them and cut off their heads directly before the door, with an axe upon a log, and in sight of their mother in the house, who dared not give any alarm. They carried off the heads with them, but [the heads] were found by their father some weeks afterwards in some bushes, where the Indians had thrown them after taking their scalps; and he buried them with their bodies."

      Mehitable Waldron was John and Mary Waldron's child immediately following Sarah and Bridget.
