  • Notes 
    • Error alert: There is a lot of confusion about this person. At least one reference says he died young. Some say he married Sarah Jane Harrison and others say Sarah Jane married another person named John Monroe. Some references say he was the son of his father and his second wife, Margaret Washington.
