  4. The 3 sources cited all give 3 different dates. The Gaskill Genealogy is full of mistakes and its data is the odd man out, so probably its date can be eliminated from consideration. If the date was written in numeric form in 1730, month 6 would be August, but after the calendar shift 1753, month 6 would be June. This difference in interpretation probably explains the difference between the other two sources. Not knowing the provenance of the Bible, it is hard to guess if it was written contemporaneously or after-the fact, or if, possibly, it was copied over at some point. Knowing William Richard Cutter, author of Source:Genealogical and family history of western New York : a record of the achievements of her people in the making of a commonwealth and the building of a nation to be an extremely experienced genealogist, it seems reasonable to trust his interpretation until more evidence is forthcoming.
