Note about line numbering: Since this chronological line number was originally established, research has resulted in two changes from the initial numbering scheme based on assumed birthdates. The first change involved George IV, whose June 1815 deposition was located wherein he stated that he was 26 years of age. This meant that he was born in 1788 or 1790 and resulted in his order of birth being changed to the tenth child. Second, until 1995, it was assumed that Nancy (Ann Stanton Tarvin Cowgill, buried in Greencastle, Indiana) was the fourth child and Richard the fifth. But a closer investigation of her gravestone determined that her birthdate was 4 December 1777, about three years later than earlier estimated. As a result, the birth order of these two children was changed. Richard's descendants are now considered "Line 4" and Nancy's are now "Line 5." The numbering of the descendants of these children was also changed to match their respective ancestor.
