Biographical Notes

He was a son of Kedar (#1639) and Pegg (#1640). J.W. Case transmitted the oral tradition that only one child of Kedar and Pegg, John, died in infancy, while church registers named two early deaths. One in Mattituck in 1805 (#1652) and one in Southold in 1810. The name John was randomly assigned to this record (#1854).
