    Notes 
    • Mercy's gravestone in the Crego family plot has the inscription Mercy, wife of Erastus Ransom Salls, died February 2, 1868 at age 70 years, 3 months that inscription establishes her birth date as November 1797 & her name as Mercy Crego. The gravestone also has the inscription Mother thou art gone. We will not grieve for thee, for thou art gone where thy spirit longed to be. The reference as Mother indicates children, but there is no evidence to support that theory.
