  • Notes 
    • The gravestones of Col. George Reade and his wife Elizabeth were discovered during street excavations in Yorktown in 1931, and evidently recut with errors. The recut stone for Elizabeth states that she was born in 1625 and died in 1696. Elizabeth's will was written 10 Feb 1686 and proved 24 Jan 1687, and as for her date of birth, a footnote in John Frederick Dorman's Adventurers of Purse and Person (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Company, 2004-07) notes that Nicholas Martiau claimed his daughter Elizabeth as headrights, meaning she must have been born prior to his arrival in Virginia in 1620, probably closer to 1615.
