Notes
a. Note:   Town records: Birth: Minerva Clay born to Lydia Clay on Feb. 13, 1800, no father recorded. Marriage: Minerva Read and Zenas Smith, both of Putney, Oct. 18, 1818
  Church Records: Baptism: Minerva Read, Ch. of Wm. C. Read. bapt. July 5, 1817. G.S.: Minerva Read 1800-1833
  Analysis: Minerva was born to parents who were out of wedlock. The only evidence that William C. Read was Minerva Read's father was his acknowledgement on her baptism records. Putney was a frontier town in the late eighteenth century and the church was frequently without a minister. All of William C. Read's children were baptized in 1817 when the town underwent a powerful church revival.
