is the likely child of this couple yet it is unsourced.  The lack of sources for this profile should be tackled before looking at the generation above it.
I have listed the information on the child of Robert Hackett and Sarah Miller.  Her name is Florida Hackett or A. Florida Hackett.  I hope that this helps.  Thank you for your assistance.

The George Bennett Link in your ancestry sure is an interesting jet-setter of his time (well maybe not a jet-setter but he would have seen a lot of nice cruise ships!)
He is my grandfather's brother.  He was an accountant for the USA government.  I believe that it was appointment by the Secretary of State.  He was essentially self taught.  He attended a public school in Baltimore then attended a private school McDonough (sp).  It was a school for children with only one parent.  His father, William E Link, and mother, Anna Bennett were divorced in 1898-99. George remarried a Russian opera singer.  He had a daughter by his first marriage.  His brother, my grandfather, William Everett Link, was also interesting in a way.  He was AWOL from a ship going abroad.  He received a discharge which slightly better than "dishonorable".  The discharge was signed by Nimitz.  He had a good record and repeated enlistments up until this point.  We believe that his marriage was in trouble and that he was trying to keep it together.
I forgot to mention George Bennett Link was in Russia during the Russian revolution. I think that he commented in correspondence to his mother that he thought that the revolution was a good.  Interesting.
I hope you don't mind that I added that to his profile as a quote from you.  His profile is already looking better.  If it's not OK it can be removed.  You can have a look a see if you think it is OK. http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Link-734
No problem.  I checked and the comments look good.  Thank you for your time.
