  1. [S106] Howland Delano Perrine, The Wright Family of Oysterbay, L.I. with the ancestry of and descent from Peter Wright and Nicholas Wright, 1423-1923, page 135 - ... fourth sister, Rebecca Frost, or her husband William Frost, did not join therein, and the reason for their not doing so may have been that she had already been provided for by her father at the time of her first marriage, in 1662, to Eleazer Leverich, this is merely surmise, and the facts are unimportant now.
