  1. [S181] William Salmon, The Salmon Records, a Private Registar of Marriages & Deaths of the Residents of the Town of Southold, Suffolk County, N.Y., and of persons more or less closely associated with that place, 1696-1811., page 128 - 16 December 1731 Benamin Vail & Mary Pain; a few pages earlier - 7 December 1721 John Salmon & Lidiah Pain.
  2. [S464] Henry Hobart Vail, Genealogy of some of the Vail family descended from Jeremiah Vail at Salem, Mass., 1639, pages 40-41 - A church record at Southold reads, "Sent to the wife of Benjamin Vail at Goshen, sister of the late widow Salmon as a legacie £6." This is evidence of the action of the executors of the will of Mrs. Lydia Salmon, who was Lydia Paine. It establishes the identity of the Benjamin Vail of Goshen with the one born at Southold who married Mary Paine.
