  • Notes 
    • Jehu had the reputation of having extraordinary strength. "It is said of him that he carried an anchor for a wager that weighed nearly 500 pounds 30 feet on a wharf. It was raised to his shoulder, and he walked the 30 feet. Said he did not breath while the anchor was on his shoulder, and his feet burst out from his thin shoes, which were new. This was all the harm done. He gained the bet, and lived until he was 97 years old." (from the Chronological History of the Mosher Family by William Mosher)
