[1]"Whole number of votes 2999." Concord Gazette (Concord, NH). March 9, 1816.
[2]"In this district (No. 12) the federal candidate lost his election by a blunder of the town clerk of Hebron, who returned the votes of Moses P. Payson, Esq. William P. Payson; it will be seen that if this error had not occurred Mr. Payson, would have had an excess of 29 votes over all the other candidates." The Portsmouth Oracle (Portsmouth, NH). May 25, 1816.
[3]"After determining in the Senate, that the proof of the legality of the votes of Hebron, should not entitle Mr. Payson to a seat (altho' had the town Clerk made a proper return, he would have been declared elected) and the 12th district would not be 'safe' without the voice of the Legislature, both branches went into Convention, and made choice of . . . Elder DAN YOUNG, in the room of Mr. Payson, elected by the people!" New-hampshire Sentinel (Keene, NH). June 15, 1816.
[4]Dan Young received 45 votes as Daniel Young.
