  1. Frost 1914,170. He is #191 in her Register numbering. (The numbers in brackets [ ] following a named individual is the number assigned by Frost to that individual in the Haviland family genealogy; the bracketed numbers (and comments) were added by the present researcher to help clarify some of Frost's information.)
  2. Frost 1914, 170. Frost cites the "Oblong Records [not verified], 20 of 10 mo. [December if old-style.], 1746".
  3. Dutchess County, New York, Quaker Records
  4. Genealogical Record of the Saint Nicholas Society: Advance Sheets, First Series. Saint Nicholas Society of the City of New York.
  5. Frost 1914, 170. Oblong records[?--not verified], "19 of 9 mo., 1828".

  8. Frost 1914, 170. "Resided at Southeast, N. Y. and Haviland Hollow, N. Y." This statement can result in some confusion if the history of local jurisdictions is not understood. In the US Census of 1790, New York, Dutchess Co., Southeastown, Daniel Haviland's family is #102, p. 36; 3 2 6 - -. In the Census of 1800 his family is #6008 in Franklin, NY, (not in Southeast); 1 - 1 - 1//- 3 1 - 1//- - . In the Census of 1810, p. 6 his family is in Patterson, NY; - 1 1 - 1//-1 - 1// - - . Judging by the neighbors listed around him in these Censuses, he resided in the same locale--Haviland Hollow--on Brimstone Rd during these years; he did not live in what would become the Town of Southeast, NY, rather in what would become the Town of Patterson, NY. In 1790 Southeastown was part of the Oblong, which was not jurisdictionally part of the Dutchess County towns adjoining on the west, later this southeastern part would be divided into two pieces which were merged into the towns to their west, Franklin (later Patterson) for the northern part and Southeast for the southern; additionally these and other towns in the southern part of Dutchess would be separated from Dutchess County in 1812 as Putnam County. --Ron Taylor

  9. Frost 1914, 170. Source not cited. She was "daughter of John Lawrence of Rye, b. 25 of 6 mo., 1745; d. before 1778." But, 'in a letter, written Dec. 22, 1847, by Anna, wife of William [220] Haviland, she says: "Daniel, son of Benjamin, m. a Stedwell of King St. and had Timothy, Daniel, John and Esther."'
  10. Frost 1914, 170. Source, Purchase Meeting Records [not verified]. 'He m., second, at Chappaqua Meeting House, 11 of 12 mo. [December], 1778, Sarah daughter of Jacob and Amy (Hallock) Underhill, b. 29 of 7 mo., 1751; d., according to Chappaqua Records, Dec. 31, 1828. Their first intentions of marriage was dated 12 of 11 mo., 1778, according to Purchase Records, and the second 10 of 12 mo., 1778, when Daniel requested a meeting to be held purposely, which was granted "to be to-morrow at Chappaqua." Among the witnesses to the marriage were: Benjamin, Roger and Isaac Haviland [Daniel's brothers?]; John [husband of Hannah-91; or father of another Hannah who was Solomon's--another of Daniel's brothers-- 2nd wife?] and Joseph Griffen.'

    "In his Bible (which was, in 1894, in the possession of Phebe Hallock [1670], who was the daughter of David [885] Haviland and grand­daughter of Samuel [400] Haviland, and she said it belonged to her grand­father [423], probably on her mother's [976] side), the date of the birth of the second wife of Daniel is given as 10 of 4 mo. [June if o.s.], 1751, and Daniel, who is named below as the eldest child, is not mentioned. Mrs. Hallock lived in Amawalk, N. Y."
