    Notes 
    • Mass. & Me. Families: Came to Brunswick with Cutting and Thomas Noyes, lived with them in the fort awhile, and then built a two-story house on the corner of Mill and Bow Streets. Two children were baptized in Brunswick, Thomas in 1791 and Charles in 1793, and there were probably others. The three boys credited to Amos in the family genealogy were really his wife's Quinby sons.

      Lunt: He went to Brunswick, Me., soon after the Revolutionary War, and built a grist mill, also a two-story house on the corner of Mill and Bow Streets.
