[1]The United States Gazette lists B. Newcombe with 3888 votes, however the names of the candidates are listed in order by vote total and it appears, therefore, that this is an error. B. Newcombe likely received 2888 votes.
[2]The United States Gazette and the American Daily Advertiser list William Boyd, Charles Massey, Alexander Cooke, James H. Cole, Hugh Colhonn, John Meany, William Delany, William Davis, William Thackara, George Slesman, Charles Barrington, John Horner, Jacob Keigler, John Patterson, Thomas Wallace, William MacFaden, S.E. Fotterall, Peter Lyle, John Maitland, and William Greble as "Independent Republicans."
