    Notes 
    • (1) In his will dated 1 May 1858, Joshua FROST listed all of his children in the following order: Rowland C. FROST, Thomas FROST, John C. FROST, Joshua C. FROST, Paul FROST and Sarah WILLIAMS. If Joshua FROST had any children who died before 1 May 1858, those children were not included in this list. According to Hoffman, Evelyn, In Search of the Mountain: Frost Family Stories, 1693-1993, Seattle, WA: E. Hoffman Designs, 1994, p. 5, Joshua FROST reportedly "disowned several children." If Joshua had any such disowned children, they were not included in this list. Although Rachel (FROST) GARNER was living as of 1 May 1858, she was not included in this list, so it is doubtful whether she was a daughter of Joshua FROST.
