Research Notes:

Albert Lee Chipman wrote, [5]

Calnek wrote, "John (4th child and eldest surviving son of Handley) and Eunice (Dixon) Chipman had ch. ... 10, Daniel Chipman, b. April 21, 1782, m. Sarah Bishop (7 ch.)" [6]

Eaton reported in his sketch of the Bishop family [7] that the children of Capt. William Bishop were ... "Sarah, b. October 17, 1782, m. (1) to Daniel, son of John Chipman, (2) to Deacon Silas Morse, of Granville, Annapolis County, son of Abner and Anna (Church) Morse. Sarah d. Aug. 10, 1826." The death year is incorrect and should be 1856. The Tuesday preceding the newspaper death notices was the 12th of August, not August 10.

Chute reported that Deacon Silas Morse [8] married, "3rd, Sarah Bishop, widow of Daniel Chipman, and d. April 30, 1849. She d. Aug. 10, 1826, aged 53." (The death date of Sarah should be August 12, 1856.)
