  • Notes 
    • Lieutenant John Whittelsey left an Almanac, published in 1690 by John Tully of Cambridge, MA (see page 6) in which he (Mr. W.) kept his accounts and some memoranda. In 1897 this book was in the possession of Mr. John C. Whittelsey1149 of Rockville, CT. Its state of preservation is excellent, writing clear, and of good penmanship; it is bound in leather, evidently done by Lieut. Whittelsey, and in every instance in which the family name is mentioned it is written "Whittelsey." The entries are made on parts of pages, not entirely taken up by the calendar of the months and advertisements. The following is a copy of some of the notes made by Lieut. Whittelsey in this book, under the dates given. Under the date of 1690, there is entered what is evidently a list of his debtors. Among them are the following names:" Nathan Prat, 57; Joseph Prat, 31; Father Whittelsey, 73; Joseph Ingraham, 24:46:"
      "Father Whittelsey in the year 1692 Sept. to 4 pairs mens shoes and one pair womens shoes
