Beyond "the notes of Edward Doolittle," what is the exact source for the origins of Abraham Doolittle, supposedly born in Kidderminster? And for his parents?
I've seen that his parents were either:
1. Another Abraham Doolittle (spouse unnamed)
2. Edward Doolittle and Elizabeth Baker (I believe this is the origins that are sourced with "the notes of Edward Doolittle".
I searched this forum and found a 2000 post from Ed shortly after his visit to Kidderminster. But I'd sure love to see an actual source citation that can be used reliably, and a great case made for the origins of Abraham Doolittle.
