    Notes 
    • She was a woman of strong character and deeply religious; in this respect differing widely from her husband, who was habitually profane, but who in all other respects was a kind and agreeable companion. Rev. Jacob Little says of her:

      "She was eminently pious, left the Episcopal and joined the Congregational Church to find Spirituality, & brought her branch of the Gerrish family within the covenant. The only words of hers which have come down are an expression which in extreme old age daily were uttered in her secret devotion. This was the expression, 'Bless my children to the latest generation.' She was instrumental in turning the current in the family, & her children, early pious, and her hundreds of descendants have generally embraced religion in youth & united with the church of her choice.
