bullet  General Notes:

GIVEN NAME: Was her name Mary Dezire or Dezire Mary? (see below for info from FIND A GRAVE.)

PARENTAGE: According to the Early History of the Town of Milford and other parts of Otsego Co. From 1773 to 1903 by Ezra Stevens - Section II.
Mrs. Farrington's father, Old Mr. Wickham, as he was generally called, was a remarkable man for longevity. Mr. Wickham lived to the age of 102 years. He died very suddenly, was very smart and retained his faculties until he dropped dead. The day he was one hundred years old, he married his second wife, and his appearance was like a man at sixty. The woman he married was in her eighties.
(Note: "Old Mr. Wickham" is assumed to be John Wickham,1734-1835, since there could not have been too many Wickhams who lived to be over 100 and married at age 100.)
