      NOTES:

      From "The Greening of West Branch" by Brett Nelson:

      ". . . William Agnew was born in Ireland in 1734 and may have been related to the renowned Agnew family of Scotland whose lineage can be traced back to the 5th century. He apparently came to the United States during the revolution as an impressed seaman because he was taken prisoner on the ocean and would have been killed by his British captors had it not been for his musical ability. After the war, he remained in this country and settled in Bergen Co., NJ, just west of New York City. ( . . . first two sons born in Bergen Co., 1786 and 1787) . . . with those two boys in hand the Agnews moved to the Symnes Purchase in Ohio in 1791. . . , but William Agnew was an older man and he died in 1805, leaving a widow and seven children behind. . . ."

      Although the above excerpt gives 1734 as William's birth year, Ms. Taunton maintains that he was born about 1765; she does not cite the source for that belief.
