[1]Supporters of DeWitt Clinton were known under several labels. While the older Clintonian / Federalist was still used, many were listed and ran as candidates of the People's Party with others favoring the term of Anti-Caucus. Those in opposition to DeWitt Clinton, although mainly Republicans were in this election also being referred to as King Caucus candidates and often called Bucktails.
[2]"On the 16th instant, a meeting was held at the house of B. Kelsey in Herkimer, composed of abut twenty discontented Republican, and the like number of Federalist and Clintonians; which nominated Mr. John Herkimer for Congress, and Messrs. Jacob Wire, Warner Folts and Samuel Dexter Jr. for Assembly; and concurred in the nomination of George Brayton, a Clintonian of Oneida County for Senator; thus ended this affair."
