Wallace Hale, Published by Heritage Books, Inc. 1540E Pointer Ridge Place, Bowie, MD 20716 (1989) and the references to newspaper sources are from VITAL STATISTICS FROM NEW BRUNSWICK (CANADA) NEWSPAPERS, by Daniel F.

1st Gen.

Peter GAYNOR; m. to Bridget [Ford](?); (Peter's Will dated 1 Jun 1798 not probated, witnessed by Jane Bean, Catherine Oliver & Bridget James; Settlement Agreement dated 13 Feb 1800 signed by James Gaynor & Bridget James as heirs gives interest in Mansion House & Lot & furnishings, etc. to Ruth Gaynor upon d. of widow "Bridget GAYNOR".)
(Various sources give the name of Peter's wife as either Bridget, Margaret or Martha, we are favoring Bridget at the moment because of the reference in the Settlement Agreement to the widow, Bridget Gaynor, however it is possible that she was *not* Peter's widow.)
