    Notes 

    • (1) The compiler has seen no proof of the ancestry of Hannah (FROST), the wife of William FROST, Sr. of Frederick County, VA.

      (2) According to a hypothesis of Mrs. Irene S. Donohoe, 9414 Woodland Drive, Silver Spring, Maryland, the maiden name of Hannah (FROST), the wife of William FROST, Sr. of Frederick County, VA, was "possibly Dawson." Mrs. Donohoe did not specify her reason for her hypothesis.

      As far as the compiler can determine, Mrs. Donohoe's hypothesis is based on (1) the first name of Dawson McCORMICK (born October 19, 1786), the second son of John McCORMICK and Ann/Anna FROST (a daughter of William FROST, Sr. and Hannah FROST); and (2) the then current naming pattern of naming a couples' second son for the mother's father.

      ENGLISH NAMING PATTERNS 1700-1875

      From approximately 1700 to 1875, the naming convention for children born to English speaking families often followed a pattern. Although the naming convention does not always work, many children's first names originated from their ancestors. For example, the 1st son was usually named after the father's father.

      ENGLISH NAMING PATTERNS 1700-1875:

      1st son............father's father
      2nd son...........mother's father
      3rd son............father
      4th son............father's eldest brother
      1st dau............mother's mother
      2nd dau...........father's mother
      3rd dau............mother
      4th dau............mother's eldest sister

      (3) Some sources claim that the maiden name of Hannah (FROST), the wife of William FROST, Sr. of Frederick County, VA, was TAYLOR. The compiler has seen no proof of that claim, which appears to be based on family lore.

      (4) Some sources assert that Hannah's name was Hannah DAWSON TAYLOR, without specifying whether (a) her middle name was DAWSON and her maiden name was TAYLOR, or (b) her maiden name was DAWSON and her prior married name was TAYLOR. The compiler has seen no proof of that assertion.
