George Bowman is squatting on the Ruddell family tree ?

The people who planted Georg Bowman on my Ruddell tree have attempted distortions and half truths (quarter truths) to do it. Although I would love to be heir to this glory-covered Army officer, I cannot allow this farce to proceed.

My grandfather, Jost Hite was not German, but English.  His family were in Colonial America from earliest beginning. While it appears Grandfather Jost Hite was German because he was apparently born there 1685, his brother Charles was born New York 1685 ! All of the Hite family was in the English colonies from the time Symonis Hite, 1590 reach American land in 1633 or on their way here. I see nothing else to do but evict Georg Bowman.

My great-grandfather Hite has always been shrouded in mystery, the mystery deepens as the ages pass.

Is it possible there is a family of Heydt that is not connected to family Hite?
I located research done 20 years ago but never incorporated in my personal family tree which supports a great deal of the data on the Wikitree for Bowman, so I wish to withdraw this accusation (and threat) until I can compare my original data with the current Bowman-801.  Sorry if I ruffled anyone's feathers. I will make amends if required.

Roger, I would tend to agree with the comment on the profile, which is that it appears to have sources connected. What sources do you have to back up the statements you have provided? If so, can you add them to the profile, so as to avoid confusion in the future?

I worked about 15 Bowman/Hite profiles, and Isaac Ruddell history last night back to the 16th century, but it's a very complex issue that can't be organized easily on the fly.  I have tons of data, much of it never examined to any depth.  I'm going to rebuild the tree which will take a matter of weeks. And I have to find my Hite files.
Add valid and verifiable sources to existing profiles to reinforce your case, and proceed from there.
