Source Notes

R.H. Oliver writes, "the family Bible, of which I have a photocopy, gives time as "between 12 and 1 with no designation of AM or PM. Corene Cowdery rectified to 1:00 PM."

Atr: The biography "Martha Washington: First Lady of Liberty" by Helen Bryan quotes the family bible with "born between midnight and 1 o'clock on June 2, 1731". If this is a real verbatim quote, it must also mean that the calendar date is Old System (Julian calendar) as nobody in a British colony in 1731 would have written down a date in the Gregorian calendar, which was only introduced 25 years later.
