Does anyone have any info on Goodwin-9725

+2 votes
I have tried to find an accurate birth date, date of death and any other concrete info for Goodwin-9725. His will is online, but it seem the last page is missing that would have his signature and the date written. I have seen the his birth date as being 1861  and 1870. Any info on him  and his father Caleb Goodwin would be greatly appreciated.

Chris, I'm confused.  The linked profile has birth/death dates of 1734 and 1803, respectively, and his father is shown as Richard Goodwin.
That really is my point. I want to add Caleb Goodwin to my tree, however when I started to create the profile, a list of Caleb Goodwins came up. I looked through each on and the Goodwin-9725 had some info that matched the information I have, but then some was way off. In the test of WT gives for adding Ancestors, it said if you are unsure of specific things ask in G2G to see if anyone else had info before creating a possible or even inaccurate profile. Goodwin-9725 is a profile that already exists, I didn't create it. However, before I would even think about changing anything in it as an edit, I wanted to see if anyone had any more info about him.
But this is a profile for Jacob Goodwin and there is no Caleb Goodwin shown as any of his ancestors, plus his profile does not show any children.  Even though this profile is not well sourced, please do not change it to be the profile for someone named Caleb Goodwin who lived about 100 years later.  Unless you accidentally transcribed the wrong profile ID for the Caleb Goodwin you say you found, Goodwin-9725 is very clearly a different person from the Caleb Goodwin you want to add.
You know I understand. I clearly inserted the wrong Caleb Goodwin ID as I was reading several at the same. Please just ignore the question. There is clearly not a Caleb Goodwin that compares to the Caleb Goodwin I have sources for that agrees 100% out of the 20 or so that are out on WT. I'll just create a profile add my sources and address any suggestions for a merges as they arise. I apologize for the the confusion.
No problem, Chris - that's the kind of thing we all do from time to time.  I'm glad everything is now so easily resolved and THANX for asking!
