Notes:
   1The following surnames have been modified to bring them in line with current spelling: Bowden (from Bowdon), Branscomb (Branscom), Clark (Clerk), Dawes (Daws), Durgin (Durgen), Farrell (Farrill, Ferrell), Fernald (Furnald), Flye (Fly), Gardner (Gardnier), Gilpatrick (Gillpatrick), Gordon (Gordan), Hamblen (Hamley), Hutchins (Hutchings), Kenison (Kennison), Lopaus (Lopus), Manley (Manly), Milliken (Miliken), Mitchell (Mitchill), Murphy (Murphey), Rafanel (Rufnell), Reed (Read), Rumill (Rummell), Smallidge (Smelledge), Southard (Southwood), Stanley (Standley), and Thom (Thoms).
   2Eben and Ebenezer may have been used interchangeably by a census taker. This possibility needs to be examined in each case.
   3This is likely the Joseph Wormal in the 1820 census of Mount Desert, but it is uncertain which spelling, if either, is correct.
   4This is likely the Thomas Summers of the 1800 and 1810 censuses of Mount Desert, but it is uncertain which spelling, if either, is correct.
   5Some of the spelling variations for this name—Kellay, Kelley, and Kelly—can likely be attributed to census takers. Further study is required to determine if there were any spelling changes within a particular lineage.
   6There was a William Bray in Mount Desert in 1810 and a John Bray in Mount Desert in 1820. In 1830 and 1840, there was at least one John Bracy plus a John Bracy Jr. Research is needed to determine if there was a name change, from Bray to Bracy, or if Bray was an errant spelling in two censuses.
   7Smith Robertson is likely the same person as Smith Robinson in the 1820 and 1840 censuses of Mount Desert.
   8Research is needed to sort out the Pierce and Peirce lineages.
   9Research is needed to determine of Whittemore or Whitmore is the correct name.
