  • Notes 
    • On Page 9 of the Carmen Family Collection:
      "Birdsall, John, Sr. - born 1696; died 1764. He was a son of Benjamin Birdsall Sr. (c.1646-c.1730) and Mercy Forman (1659-?). He resided in Jerusalem, N.Y., where he was a farmer. He also served as a captain in the loyalist militia company."
      It is said that Capt. John Birdsall Sr. and Elizabeth Langdon had 7 children and lists the seven without naming a daughter Deborah: "Birdsall, Elizabeth (Langdon)- born c.1702; date of death unknown. She was the daughter of Thomas Langdon (c.1673-1734) and Mary (Dusenbury) Alburtis (?-c.1727). She was the 1st wife of Capt. John Birdsall Sr. (1696-1764) of Jerusalem, N.Y.; they had seven children: Thomas (1728-?),
      Elizabeth (1731-1777),
      John (?-alive as of 1790),
      Joshua (?-1780),
      Benjamin (1736-1798),
      Joseph (1739-1824),
      and Samuel.

      And on Page 8 the same record says that "the Deborah Birdsall who was born c.1740 (date of death unknown) and who was a daughter of Capt. John Birdsall Sr. (1696-1764) and Elizabeth Langdon (c.1702-?)."
      So at first, it appears Elizabeth and John had at least 8 children but under the record of Capt. John Birdsall, Sr. on page 9, the record says that Deborah was dau of Capt. John and his second wife, Elizabeth (Coe) Pierce, widow.
