Notes:
   1The following surnames have been modified to bring them in line with current spelling: Cousins (from Cousens or Couzens), Kief (Keafe), Liscomb (Lithcomb), Lynam (Lynum), Peach (Peachy), Rodick (Rodicks or Radicks), Smallidge (Smelledge), and Wasgatt (Wasgat). From some of these variant spellings we might get a hint at how they were (mis)pronounced (e.g., Lithcomb vs. Liscomb).
   2Enoch Hunting is likely the same person as Enoch Huntling in the 1830 census of Eden, but it is uncertain which spelling, if either, is correct. No record has been found for a gravestone or other marker for a Hunting or a Huntling in any cemetery of Cranberry Isles or the towns of Mount Desert Island.
   3This surname was variously reported as Massy (Mount Desert 1790), Masser (Eden 1800), Morris (Eden 1810), Mercer (Eden 1820), and Marcyes (Eden 1830). Marcyes is probably the correct name.
   4There was an Andrew Monach in the 1800 census of Eden. It is likely that Monarch and Monach are variations of the same name, but it is uncertain which spelling, if either, is correct.
   5John Somerby is likely the same person as John Summerby in the 1810 census of Eden, but it is uncertain which spelling, if either, is correct. It may be that the correct name is Suminsby.
