  2. Hist. of Sutton, NH, p.931 (Samuel Roby m. Hannah Merrill).

  3. Roby Genealogy, N.H. Hist. Society #929.2 R668, p.3 (There seems to be two Hannahs, 1st. Hannah Ordway and then Hannah Merrill, but not Hannah Shed. A study of the Ordways disclosed a Merrill-Ordway marriage, but did not prove that Hannah Ordway was Hannah Merrill). [Recheck this source, writing in pencil at bottom of page did not copy entirely]
