Notes for Mehitable Briggs
See NEHGS April 1971 and October 1972 for possible information.

Many people associate this Mehitable with the one born in 1689, but that is impossible given the birthdates of the children of Nicholas and Mehitable.
Notes for Nathaniel (Spouse 1)
Nathaniel's children were all minors at the death. Jonathan Cobb, Eliphas Harlow and John Reed were appointed guardian for the oldest four children and Bethiah Knapp and Thomas French were guardians for the rest of the children. Nathaniel lived near Boston at the time of the Rev. War. His sons Jacob, Aaron, Moses and Daniel served in the war.

There is also a Jonathan Knapp, b. 1709, put in this family by some sources, which Patricia Knapp rightly believes could not be possible.579 In my [M.A.H.] opinion, this could be a sibling rather than a son.

It is clear that Patricia Knapp does not have the children in chronological order. 579
