Notes:

Benjamin Buffum (1789-1861) was born in Douglas and lived his entire life there. He married Olive Wheelock in 1810, with whom he fathered at least six children. Olive died in 1848. A year later he married her niece, Sophia.

Sophia gave birth to at least four children out-of-wedlock, according to Douglas town records. Of these four, three are recorded in the town births, wherein the father is not identified, and Sophia is identified as single.[1]

The marriage and death records of these same four children identify Sophia as their mother, and Benjamin Buffum as their father. Yet all were born before Benjamin and Sophia married. The four children of Sophia are listed here with Benjamin Buffum as father. However, this relationship is uncertain, given their out-of-wedlock births, and the potential unreliability of their marriage and death records.

For details, arguments, and comprehensive source citations, see the notes for Sophia Wheelock (1804 - 1901).
