    • (1) Pennsylvania Archives, 2nd Series, vol. 9, "Marriages Authorized by the Middletown Monthly Meeting of Friends, 1685-1810," pp. 217-229 [reproduced at http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/pa/bucks/church/middletownmm01.tx t]:

      9 [mo] 30 [da] 1703 Buckman Mary and Henry Couper.

      [Note by compiler: See Berry, Ellen Thomas and Berry, David Allen, Our Quaker Ancestors?Finding Them in Quaker Records, Baltimore, MD: Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1987, pp. 67-68:

      [Quakers] did not use names for days of the week or months of the year since most of these names were derived from the names of pagan gods. A date such as August 19, 1748 will never be found. Rather it would be written as "19th da 6th mo 1748." Sometimes this will be written as 6mo 19da 1748. Why 6th month since August is the 8th month? The Quakers, along with everyone else in the American Colonies and England, did not begin using the Gregorian calendar until 1752. Under the Julian calendar the year began on March 25th; March was the first month and February was the twelfth month. This is something of a problem when an event occurred in the months of January, February or up to March 25th, for then the date is given as 1748/1749.]
