    Notes 
    • Confusion - the family bible notes show 2 different individuals in the family named John - John, born 5 Sep 1804 and John A, born 12 Jan 1824. The Lupton book shows just one, John Allen, born 1816.
    • And more confusion - family bible shows Sally born 28 Oct 1814 - The Lupton books shows a Sarah (or Sally) with a birth year of 1820. Most likely the same person.
