CORRECTIONS AND ADDITIONS.

Sarah Morton, no doubt the daughter of the Signer, for whom I could not account, married Dec. n, 1773, William Grantum, perhaps of the Ridley family of that name: see p. 145. For all these marriages, see 2 Pa. Archives, 2 series. These dates are those of the licenses not of the marriages. This volume of the Archives is just out, April 7, 1877, which accounts for these additions to the family sketches.
