Notes and references

  1. Not PLGN as shown in HER entry
  2. Despite extensive research we have been unable to place Philippe and Elizabeth in any of the Jerripedia family trees
  3. This stone is dated 23 years after the couple's marriage but, although it was previously believed to have been erected six years after Daniel's death, it is now known that he lived until 1846, and not 1815, as previously shown in a submitted farmily tree
