    Notes 
    • "A Genealogy of the Ingersoll Family" - Mrs. Hester Jones was captured and taken to Canada as a prisoner. She was obliged by her captors to make the whole journey on foot and suffered many hardships and was treated with much cruelty.
      She eventually died in Canada, after enduring many tortures by the French priests, in their vain endeavors to convert her from the Puritan faith to the Roman Catholic religion.
