  • Notes 
    • "Francis W. was engaged in business in Medford; but his too generous method of dealing embarrassed his affairs; and having, with Rev. Mr. Stone, purchased a township on the Kennebec, he removed thither with his oldest son, Stephen. He was engaged in shipping masts for the royal navy, an occupation which gave much offense to the squatters on the crown lands." [Record of the Descendants of Francis Whitmore of Cambridge, Massachusetts]
