- In this article, he says the "History of Lynn" (1829) was the first appearance of the "first white child" statement. This may be true, but it also appears in "Vital Records of Lynn" (Vol. 1, Page 297), where Thomas is given as the son of "Thomas and Elizabeth" and the source of the information is given as a "Bible record now in possession of Wilbur F. Newhall of Saugus." This now appears to be wrong.
- In the "History of Lynn" (1829), Page 30 says that the first marriage in Lynn was between John Newhall and Sarah Lewis on 10 Apr 1646. However, in the "Vital Records of Lynn", I didn't find that marriage, but I did find a marriage between John Newhall and Sarah Lewis on 10 Apr 1746 (see Vol. 2, Page 269).
