  • Notes 
    • Date Issue: The only source we have linking Phinehas' parentage and birth, is Guild (1892). If this is true, the problem is that Phinehas was born in 1738, but did not get married until 1795 at the age of 60. Then after Hannah's death, he remarried in 1806 at the age of 68. While possible, this seems improbable.

      There is another candidate, Phenehas Stiles, son of Edmond and Elizabeth Stiles who was born 20 March 1764 in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts. This would put his first marrage at the age of 31. It might also be noted that Shrewsbury is next to Wendell.

      I believe that Guild (1892) was incorrect. Our Phenehas was born in Shrewsbury. Proof still needs to be found. [1, 2, 3]
    • Incorrect Person: There was a Phineas Stiles in Jackson, Maine, however he came to Jackson in 1809 from Manchester, Massachusetts. [15]
