Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes "Robert Colgate, the Immigrant: A Genealogy of the New York Colgates" by Truman Abbe, Hubert Abbe Howson (1941), p. 49: "William Colgate, son of Robert and Sarah (Bowles) Colgate, was born at midnight on January 25th, 1783."

Rated C because it is not clear whether it was midnight starting or ending the 25th.
