John R. Estes (Estes-1778) needs to be merged into John R. Estes (Estes-1595).  Are his parents Abraham Estes-1779 and Nelly Organ-172  OR are they George Estes-1594 and Mary Younger-463 ?

Thanks and sincerely,

The info I'm sharing is from records on Ancestry.com.  George Estes is listed on a couple of public trees as the father of John R.  I realize that that means little, but the 1790 census (the first U.S.) lists George Estes's household as 4 white souls, no property.  The 1880 census lists John R. as having been born in VA as well as both his parents.  Nothing definitive, but I will continue to be on the lookout.
