    Notes 
    • bAbigail
      /bShe was the daughter of John Taylor of Oyster Bay, who inherited from her father the valuable Estate of Dosoris, where they went to reside after the death of John Taylor in 1715. The dwelling which they occupied stood until 1942 when it was torn down. The name Dosoris is compounded from two Latin names: Dos Uxoris and was considered by Mr. Woolsey as implying it was a gift to his wife

      "Dosoris", the estate which came into the possession of the Woolsey family about 1693 as the dowry of Rev. Benjamin's wife Abigail Taylor. Before this time it had been owned by only two white men since its purchase Nov. 24, 1668, from Agulon, Areming, Gohan, Nothan, Yamalamok and Chogloman, chiefs of the Matinecock Indians.
