  • Notes 
    • "He turned out to be meanly and corruptly dispositioned - indolent, dissipated, improvident, a whoremonger. So vilely did he behave, and such was the unconscionableness of his neglect of his family, that his wife sought her greatest good in an effort of dissolve or dissever the nuptial tie that bound her to him - it was dissolved - they were disunited by decree of divorce." What became of him is unknown, "only that he is said to have gone to Vermont."
