Advice before editing this pre-1700 Unknown profile?

I have information to contribute to the profile of Sarah (Unknown) Evans. This is what I can add: Have birth location from Montgomery County Baptist Church Records, and death date, burial location and birth year from a description of her tombstone.

I also have her migration from Montgomery to Berks county in 1738 via a history of Berks County by Morton Montgomery.

Should I contact one of the pre-1700 projects or know about any style guidelines before proceeding? Thank you!

It looks like you made a good start on that profile, John. smiley

It looks like both of your cited sources probably are about her death and burial. What is the source for her birth in Llanwenarth, Monmouthshire, Wales in about 1686? (Footnotes are needed to show the sources for specific facts.)

The Montgomery Baptist Church source shows her being received into that congregation from the congregation in Llanwenarth in 1722. I used that congregation location as an "uncertain" birth location. The Berks County History source describes  her tombstone in passing during a description of the ruined graveyard at the Tulpohocken Baptist Church site. Serendipity. The stone gave her death date and age for an "uncertain" birth year. I will put that info in the comments.

Thanks for your reply.
