Mr. Jacobus' Introductory and Closing Notes

"While working on the Hale, House, Hills and related families of Glastonbury, Conn., for Edgar F. Waterman, Esq., of Hartford, Conn., it was necessary to give considerable attention to the Risley family because of the numerous intermarriages. Mr. Waterman has kindly permitted publication of the Risley data thus collected. While the data are far from complete, they correct and greatly amplify the unsatisfactory account of the early generations which was given in The Risley Family History (1909) by Edwin H. Risley."

"Note: Research on some branches has been far from thorough, and the account given could be considerably amplified by further "digging" in record sources; nevertheless, it serves to rectify some of the defects and deficiencies of the printed genealogy of the family."
