This genealogy is not intended to be comprehensive.  (Previously omitted branches may nonetheless be added in response to expressions of interest.)   Therefore the generation indicator mark (e.g.  (A), (i)  or whatever) does not necessarily indicate the chronological position of a child's birth date in relation to those of siblings.

Most of these data come from notes taken from the family bible of Cater Rand 1749 - 1825, which appears to have been inscribed during the first two decades of the nineteenth century. The compiler suspects that they were copied thither from an earlier family bible.  Relatively little corroboration to other sources has been performed at the time of writing, and these data should accordingly be viewed with caution..
