    Notes 
    • From: Joe Travis
      W. L.'s entry on the family is a bit confusing, as he does not assign reference numbers in his usual fashion. But he does indicates that he married 3 times.

      1st. to Lydia Chase; "The 1810 Census shows they [Asa & Lydia] had 2 sons also" [besides daughter Sarah].

      2nd. to Mary Akin; "He had two daughters, Lydia and Martha by his 2nd marriage"

      3rd. to Sarah Wood; "and no children by his 3rd marriage".
