When you post a query about your ancestor include:
DATES or estimated dates for any (b/m/d) that you might have -
some questions don't include even the century! so it's hard to tell if you are looking in the 1700's or 1950's for your ancestor.
LOCATION - COUNTRY + State/Province/County, City/Town if you know
ex. RUTLAND could be in England and Canada (BC) and US States: IL, OH. PA. VT, and MA and maybe more
Relatives names - parents/ spouse/children etc any that you have
It makes it easier for people to assist you.
