    • * Note that the date of birth in the Quaker Meeting Minutes is the JULIAN date (as opposed to the "Gregorian" dates we use today). Quakers also referred to the months as numbered months rather than their names, and their calendar started on March 24th rather than January 1st. It gets even more complicated, so a date converter must be used to determine the Gregorian date ("INT" means "interpreted".) The Gregorian date appears first, followed by the Julian date in parenthesis.
