Notes
a. Note:   "He had an enviable reputation as an orchardist and planted hundreds of apple trees. He stored for winter 100 bushels of apples of 70 varieties and also raised plums, cherries, pears and grapes in quantity. His seven hives of bees provided sweets for the family. His greatest recorded accomplishment was the development of the famous Wing cranberry bogs (1880) which covered seven acres just across the road. He cleared a wooded swamp, drained it, dug ditches, divided it into beds and set the vines. Production was excellent, considered the best in the state, accomplished by years of hard work which resulted in a yield of more than 600 bushels annually. Silas was known for his remarkable physical endowments. He attended the annual Wing reunions at Boston & Sandwich and his wit and quaint sayings were popular. He and his brother, Samuel B., and his sister, Nancy Whitman, helped organize and start the Phillips Wing Reunion.
b. Note:   Silas Wing [son of Samuel & Mary B. Wing born] 8th December 1827. Mr. Wing was born on the farm adjoining the one where he lived and died. [2]
c. Note:   following an illness of about one year, having been stricken with paralysis on the 16th of March, from which he never recovered the use of his speech, nor of his limbs.
d. Note:   Funeral held Wednesday afternoon from the home. Buril will be in the "Fuels" cemetery. [2]
