Dr. John Stilwell wrote a three-volume series: The History of Lieutenant Nicholas Stillwell-Progenitor of the Stillwell Family in America by John E. Stillwell M.D., NY 1929. Vol 3 may have detailed information that pertains to my ancestry. This book cautions against errors found in Benjamin Marshall Stilwell’s book, but does it point out what these errors are? More specifically, does it mention the descendants of Richard Silva Stillwell b. 1840, son of James Stillwell and Hester Silva m. 24 Sep. 1824? I have reason to believe that Hester (Hetty) Stillwell Lee was his daughter but have no way to prove that. If you have the book, could you please check this? Thank you in advance.

Since asking this question, I have found information from Vol. 3 in the Hay Genealogy web site and I have verified that Hetty Stillwell Lee was Richard Silva Stilwell's daughter.

This book is now documented on a "Source page" in WikiTree, at Space:The History of Captain Nicholas Stillwell, Son of Lieutenant Nicholas Stillwell, and his Descendants. One free source of this book (on archive.org) is identified there. If anyone is aware of other online sources, please add them to the page.

Due to similarity of titles and the fact that the titles and title pages do not identify them as numbered volumes in a series, it can be difficult to distinguish the different books in this series.
