    Numbering Error for OSA4039 Samuel St. John:
    Page 511 probably the son of Job(2), No. 80

    Job is OSA0081
    Daniel is OSA0080

    It is unclear how to resolve this issue as there seems no supportive evidence at this time to place this Samuel with either Daniel (80) or Job (81).

    13 Oct 2016 Update: DNA evidence for his descendant confirms this Unclassified Individual is a descendant of Captain Samuel St. John and Rebecca Olmstead but unfortunately it does not isolate one son from the other as the father.
