Excerpt from Rev. John Moore of Newtown, Long Island, and some of his descendants, James W. Moore, published 1903. This publication is available in several formats from https://archive.org/details/revjohnmooreofne00moor

TCS Note: I have shown footnotes from the text in brackets where their flag is positioned. The excerpt makes for interesting reading, not just because it mentions Sacketts, but also for what it reveals about church and community governance.Newtown today is the Elmhurst neighborhood in Queens Borough, New York City. Jamaica also is today a neighborhood in Queens Borough. The Sacketts mentioned are descendants of Thomas the Elder and Simon the Colonist. . . .

Here is another excerpt from the Rev. John Moore genealogy, pp. 54 & 75-76. Note that the work uses aet. (Latin aetatis = age; aged) throughout and, when someone has multiple wives, uses a line of asterisks ( * * * * * * ) to separate the children of each. The list of children here includes a few additional dates, such as the death date of Jemima Moore, that are not available in Weygant. The work also uses superscript numbers not only for descendants of Rev. John Moore but also for one of the ancestral lines of many spouses.
