 Notes:   Year of the voyage was uncertain. I have made a guess based on other material in the folder. Brig Betty & Molly, Thomas Morong, master. I have guessed at his rank from his monthly wage and because he was listed lower than second in the portledge bill. His surname was spelled Spri in the portledge bill.
