Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

CONFLICTS

Cemetery: This database uses Friends' Burial Grounds. The article "Samuel Levis, Quaker Immigrant" uses Quaker's Burial Ground. While these two terms are often used interchangably, the former appears to be the correct name. [periodical-samuel-levis-quaker-immigrant-1999]

FOLLOWUP

In The Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, Volume 37.1, on page 86, Humphrey is noted as a "Constable of Arnold." Is this a distinct position, or is his role as a churchwarden being miscast? [periodical-genealogical-gleanings-in-gb-1913, book-plantagenet-ancestry-2004]
