    [Note: based on the baptism date, either the birth or baptism is incorrect. Usually church records are more reliable, being recorded at the time of the event, whereas town records are often recorded when convenient. Use of 1745 centers Daniel between the surrounding siblings better and so seems more likely than 1746 (31 and 31 months compared to 43 and 18 months).]
