1 Rev. Ormiston was a highly regarded minister and close friend of Dr. Calvin McQuesten. He was not the officiant at the wedding of Isaac to Mary-Jane Baker (later McQuesten), probably as a result of discontent over Isaac's handling of the financial transactions with his stepmother Elizabeth Fuller.

2 The McKeand family was related to Dr. Calvin McQuesten's third wife, Elizabeth Fuller. When she and Calvin's son Isaac were arguing over finances, she brought some of the McKeand family to live with her. Elizabeth also had a sister named Mrs. Currier who was insane. See W2436.
