    • "… It has never been settled whether 'brother-in-law' in this case meant that William1 Salmon's wife Katharine was a sister of Thomas Curtis, or whether Curtis's wife Elizabeth (family name unrecorded) was a sister of William Salmon, or whether the two woman were sisters. In any case, Thomas1 Curtis of Wethersfield was an uncle by blood or marriage of at least the elder four Salmon children, including the witness Sarah Salmon.* …
    • For example, [Charles H.] Cory thought that William Salmon's wife Katharine was probably a sister of Thomas Curtis of Wethersfield ('The Salmon Lineage,' in [Charles H. Cory Jr.], Lineal Ancestors of Captain James Cory and of his Descendants: Genealogical, Historical, and Biographical, 4 vols. In 8 parts [n.p. 1937], vol. III [Lineal Ancestors of Susan (Mulford) Cory], pt. 1, 176-200, at 176]), but Harlow Dunham Curtis states, also without specific proof, that Thomas1 Curtis m. Elizabeth, sister of William Salmon of Southold (A Genealogy of the Curtiss-Curtis Family of Stratford, Connecticut: A Supplement to the 1903 Edition [Stratford, 1953], 1, correcting the earlier volume, p. xxviii)."
