I tried to get this fixed, but now even worse

+8 votes
This family lineage is a mess.   Even the biography now does not match the wife attached, etc.    I have tried to figure out how to straighten this all out....see my previous question.

But, now, because of merges done, it is even more conflated.   Does someone want to try to figure this out?

Hi Robin.  I'll have a look at it, if you still need someone.

Thanks Amy.....I started removing relationships, then realized just how much was wrong......YOU ROCK!
Pilcher has been shown to be unsourced and unreliable.  Plus it has spawned numerous secondary documents that perpetuate it's myths.  And in this case, Burkes is also unreliable.  

The only way out of this mess is to fall back to what the Clan Campbell Society has published and generally accepts as true regarding this family.  A number of reprints from the CCSNA journal have been attached to the family page (see PDF at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Campbell-2486).  

This line is of interest to a lot of Campbells.  However, if it's not accepted by Clan Campbell Genealogist -- then it shouldn't be considered true here.
Thank you, Kevin.  I agree that this is of interest to many Campbell's.  I will continue to communicate with the Scotland Project's Clan Campbell team  which I lead, and identify as many reliable sources as possible.
