Hello. Searching the DePriest tree, we found that William married Judith Bolling in your and other trees, but some have Judith Austin and stating Judith Bolling is Naomi's step-mother.

Can you clarify which is right.

Kind Regards

Citing and quoting sources is the best way to help determine which claims are more valid than other claims.

What evidence supports Bolling? What evidence supports Austin?

I just did some quick skimming of various sites related to William DePriest. Apparently there is no hard evidence of Judith's surname. I.e., it hasn't been proven one way or another what her maiden name was.
Hello Jillain.

Many thanks for your time and reply, is it possible that Judith Bolling and Judith Austin are one of the same.

Regards

I'd need to look again but my initial sense is that there is simply disagreement about WHICH Judith married DePriest.  Ie two separate women.  Ideally what would happen on the profile page is a summary of what evidence supports Bolling and what evidence supports Austin. It looks like serious researchers have concluded there is insufficient evidence for either.
Thank you very much again, it would appear we may never know.

Thanks
