My 4x great grandfather Francis Upton continued the family tradition of having a
large family; he and Sarah (Bancroft)Upton had twelve children. John Adams Vinton
gives a list of them in The Upton Memorial, but when I double checked the information

in the dates. So I've put my corrections in red ink below:
