Notes

  • Most accounts say that Samuel married Elizabeth (Betsy) Ruddick, but Clarence Almon Torrey points out: "The will [of Henry Reddick] was lost or destroyed many years ago, but there is a copy of the agreement of his heirs in Oyster Bay Records (printed), vol. 1, pp. 88-89. His heirs were five daughters, three of whom were married. They are named in the order of their births and signed the agreement in the same order: Mary Hauxhurst, Hannah Weekes, Elizabeth Weekes, Jane Readuck, and Sarah Rudick. Christopher Hawxhurst, Samuell Weekes and Joseph Weekes signed in that order, indicating that Samuel signed as the husband of Hannah and Joseph as the husband of Elizabeth Weekes. In all previous accounts which have come to this writer's attention, it is erroneously stated that Samuel married Elizabeth Reddough and that Joseph married her sister Hannah."
