[2]The American Citizen (New York, NY) and Otsego Herald use the spelling Foot for Ebenezer Foote.
[3]Henry Lowther, who was from Tompkins, received votes in Tompkins for every office but was probably not an announced candidate in any of those elections.
[4]The American Citizen (New York, NY), May 21, omits returns from Worcester from its Otsego County listings, so its totals are incorrect.
[5]The Otsego Herald (Cooperstown, NY) reports 486 votes for Ebenezer Foote in Otsego County.
[6]Francis Henry received 1 vote as Francis A. Henry.
