  1. The names Thomas and Cynthia used for their eleven sons include family names and those of famous ministers.  Cloyd, Bryson, Houston, Stephenson, and Cunningham are known family names.  David Brainard, Robert Newton and Charles Hodge were famous ministers.  
  2. The first section includes births of Thomas McAdams siblings, parents and at least one sister-in-law.  Ann Duncan married Thomas' brother Samuel B. McAdams, Sr. 
  3. The second section includes births of David B(rainard)'s wife and two daughters and of Robert N(ewton)'s wife and children.
  4. The third section mirrors the information on page 1 about the McAdams sons, but adds middle names.  John C(loyd)'s birthdate is transcribed December 20, 1836 here as opposed to December 30, 1836 on page 1.  
  5. The last section includes the births of Cynthia Stephenson's family.  In addition to her parents and siblings, an uncle (Matthew) is included, as are the spouses of her sisters.  Polly Nelson was her father's first wife.
