Of great historical interest, this account ties together other families of the time. Jonathan Edward's 17-year-old daughter Jerusha nursed David Brainerd (age 27) when he was ill and dying at the Edward's house. A description of this is given in the diary of another of Edward's daughters, Esther Edwards, who was the mother of Aaron Burr. That these works are available online is one of the marvels of the age!
