Conflict Errors

Pg 7 & 10
On Pg 7, Lapham indicates that Ebenezer Knox is married to Elizabeth Ricker. The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, 5:310, indicates that Elizabeth Ricker was the daughter of John and Hannah (Garland) Ricker.
On Pg 10, the same Ebenezer Knox is married to Abigail Ricker, daughter of John and Dorcas (Garland) Ricker. As of Jan 2014, research indicates that the only Dorcas Garland [3 Apr 1698 - ?] to marry into the Ricker family married Ephraim Ricker [15 Feb 1695/6 - ?], son of George and Eleanor (Evans) Ricker. There is no indication that they had a daughter by the name of Abigail.
Part of the confusion over this family connection most likely derived from the fact that Hannah and Dorcas Garland were sisters. [ NEHGR, 5:309-10 ].
