I need help with validating the profile for "John Newham Mayne" which I adopted when I first started with Wikitree as the father of Archie Mayne. The more I have learned about genealogy the more this profile has bothered me.
I have spent over 48 hours researching John and what should be his parents and can't find anything.
The only thing I have found is on family search which is an International Genealogical Index (IGI). When I looked up what IGI stands for it is made up of sources from individuals! yuck
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, "International Genealogical Index (IGI)," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/2:1:9NRV-5C8 : accessed 2016-01-31), entry for John Newham Mayne or Main.
This link states his birth date is 5 January 1837 (Which matches what the imported profile says born River Philip, Cumberland, NS Canada
Spouse Mary Louise or Mary E. Patton
Child Archie Main
Marriage 7 November Grays Road Wallace
I am unable to find any connection to Henry Mayne & Esther Ripley Mayne who are the parents of John Mayne.
These are for John Main
Birth 5 Jan 1837
"Canada Births and Baptisms, 1661-1959," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FLRN-NJY : accessed 30 January 2016), John Main, 05 Jan 1837; citing River Phillip Township, Cumberland, Nova Scotia, 05 Jan 1837, reference p 283; FHL microfilm 1,376,195.
Birth 4 Jan 1838
"Canada Births and Baptisms, 1661-1959," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FLR8-28M : accessed 30 January 2016), Easter Ripley in entry for John Main, 04 Jan 1838; citing River Phillip Township, Cumberland, Nova Scotia, 04 Jan 1838, reference p 280; FHL microfilm 1,376,195.
If you come to the same conclusion that John Newham Mayne is not my John Mayne, should I remove my information from John Newham Mayne and create a profile for John Main?
Also, why do I have Nova Scotia Births and Baptisms indicating John Mayne was born in 5 Jan 1837 and 4 Jan 1838. Could the later date be his baptism?
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
