The transcriber's comments or editing marks are enclosed [within square brackets].


An apostrophe indicates that the letter or letters following were raised, or written in superscript, in the original text.


This transcript includes paragraph breaks whereas the original text appears as one paragraph without any indentation.


[-] signifies an illegible character.


This might have been an error in transcription, since the name of John Shuter had not been stated previously. The reference was probably to the life of David Shuter, one of the executing parties. The general quality of handwriting in this Memorial is poor.
