I know a lot of this profile was generated automatically. It seems unlikely that Elizabeth Moore, the daughter of Henry and Priscilla Moore, was the wife of Andrew Bankson. She married Joseph Fussell, right? Marriage: 14 Jun 1814, Gwyndd Meeting, Montgomery Co., Pa. And she died a Fussell. The Elizabeth Moore who married Andrew Bankson in Illinois in 1808 lived until 1857 and died at the home of her daughter in Highland, Wisconsin. Happy to share more information AND to discuss.

Hi, Ellen. Let me see if I can assist you. First, please edit your question to include in the Surnames/Tags field: Quakers and Pennsylvania.  Those will help the right people see your question.

Yes, without question, the Elizabeth daughter of Henry and Priscilla married Joseph Fussell (son of Batholomew and Rebecca) on 14 Jun 1814. All the names including her parents are given in Source: Swarthmore College; Swarthmore, Pennsylvania; Marriages 1780-1917; Collection: Quaker Meeting Records; Call Number: MR-PH 222 (Gwynedd MM)

Is there another Elizabeth Moore who married an Andrew Bankson being conflated with the daughter of Henry and Priscilla? Have you contacted the PMs on the profile? Neither has been on WikiTree since June. Is there any potential she was married before Joseph? (I think not as there is no indication of this at all in the meeting minutes.)

None of the involved profiles are properly sourced for pre-1700 profiles. Let me know if you would like some assistance in untangling things. But, you are correct she is presently attached to the wrong husband.

I find a 30 Oct 1792 entry in the Gwynedd minutes concerning Priscilla's application to join the meeting along with that of five children. (Swarthmore College; Swarthmore, Pennsylvania; Women's Minutes, 1792-1794; Collection: Quaker Meeting Records; Call Number: MR-PH 230)


Her birth is recorded in Green Street MM minutes as 19 Feb 1790. (Swarthmore College; Swarthmore, Pennsylvania; Record of Births 1807; Collection: Quaker Meeting Records; Call Number: MR-PH 218) Family lived in Montgomery.

I have determined through primary source documentation that Elizabeth Moore is attached to the wrong husband. Since she has the correct parents attached I will detach her from the incorrect husband, detach the incorrect children, and connect her with the new profile for her correct husband Joseph Fussell. Ellen, since you have documentation on the Elizabeth Moore that did marry Andrew Bankson, please create a new profile for that Elizabeth Moore as wife of Andrew Bankson and attach the children to her.
