[16]The Independent Gazeteer and Agricultural Repository (Philadelphia, PA) uses the following alternate names and spellings: Stuart for David Stuart, Ball for Thomas Bull, Hodge for John Hoge, McDowal for James McDowell, Marshal for James Marshall, McLane for James McLene, and R. McClay for Samuel Maclay.
[17]It is difficult to read the reported total votes for Joseph Heister in Cumberland County. It is certainly a three digit number, the first being "1" and the last being "8". A total vote of 168 has been inserted as an estimation.
[18]The nine votes listed here for James Ross were originally attributed to a John Ross in the election returns for Huntingdon County.
[19]The Independent Gazeteer and Agricultural Repository (Philadelphia, PA) reports 569 votes for David Stewart in Philadelphia City.
