children of John Lapham and Mary Russell:1

i. Elizabeth, b. 29 July (Dartmouth town records) or 29 December 1701 (Dartmouth Monthly Meeting records)
ii. John, b. 2 December (Dtr) or 3 December (DMM) 1703
iii. Thomas, b. 10 December 1705
iv. Rebecca, b. 5 October or 8 July 1707 (from several sources: town record and Dartmouth Monthly Meeting record say 5th of 8th month, which is Oct. on the 18th century Julian calendar; a family Bible says 8th of the 5th month (July). I don't favor one over the other.)
v. Joseph, b. 7 September 1709
vi. Mary, b. 15 September 1711
vii. Frances, b. 10 August 1713
viii. Benjamin b. 24 September 1715
ix. Ruth, b. 26 May 1718
x. Bathsheba b. 21 May 1720
xi. Joshua, b. 9 March 1722 (the Dtr agrees with the DMM record, but the Dtr doesn't have a dual year, showing the Julian/Gregorian calendar year overlap. See Silvia below.)
xii. Hannah, b. 14 October 1723
xiii. Silvia, b. prob. 15 February 1727 (b. 15 February 1725/26 (Dtr), the dual year indicating the overlap of the Julian and Gregorian (which we use now) calendar years; on the Julian, February was the 12th month. 15th of 12th month 1726 (DMM), the latter is in full Julian calendar form, which is 26 February 1727 on the Gregorian calendar, which adds 11 days to the Julian form after 1700. Obviously there's a discrepancy in years between the two sources, prob. a clerical mistake).
xiv. Elizabeth, b. 3 April 1731
