I've tried to confirm the date of the following event from various sources but have been unable to do so:

1631 - In Dorchester, Massachusetts, John Winthrop takes the oath of office and becomes the first Governor of Massachusetts.

Can anyone confirm it (and clarify date as being Julian or Gregorian). If not, in due course I'll delete it. Arcturus 16:49, 7 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Need real birth and death dates for Saurabh Motwani. I couldn't find them by a quick Google search. RttlesnkeWhiskey 07:18, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Austin Martell[edit]

Howard Thompson, Canadian Scholar, b.1988[edit]

On the principle that if they're not notable enough to have a Wikipedia page, they're not notable enough to be in the list, I'm removing. Feel free to reinstate if you know better :) Brickie (talk) 08:52, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
