    Notes 
    • 1800 in Pownal,VT next to his son, Samuel. 1810 living in Marcellus.

    • Albert Wiltsee in 1897 wrote of his grandfather, John Wiltsie that "He went to see a strictly Dutch girl" to get married and therefore be released from bondage of Mr. Buley (marriage was the only way he was told). We assume this is Polly Burns, his wife, d/o Francis Burns. The following is about this Francis' father and uncle, Francis/Franz.

      In June 1746, while Franz Burns and his brother were hoeing in Cohoha cornfield, when they saw their barn on fire. On nearing their cottage door, they beheld a stack of French rifles and in their fright the brothers separated. One ascended the trail over the Kreigger Rocks and hastened up the valley to Fort Massachusetts, and the other turned up the river and met an ambuscade of warriors, who gave chase for his scalp. He plunged into the river and hid beneath piles of driftwood until the Indians retreated down the valley. The next morning, he rose from his hiding place and proceeded to the English fort, where to his surprise he found his brother.
