Notes for Seth (perhaps) Wetherell:
[Seth with a perhaps is placed as one of the 10 children of Samuel III. Hanover is where the family originated and there were three brothers there having children, but the age coincides best with Samuel III.... that is what the perhaps means.... at the worst he would be the son of one of the other brothers.... he just fits best where they put him.... beyond him, the data is fairly well documented.]
