Abercrombie profile needs massive help

+9 votes
172 views
General James Abercrombie was active, and not too successful, in the Seven Years War (French and Indian War in the Colonies). After a very decisive loss in 1758 he was recalled to England where he later served as a member of Parliament and eventually died there.

Combined in this profile is the information for another James Abercrombie who settled in Laurens, South Carolina about 1734, had several children and died there about 1782.

Could someone with more knowledge than I have about this time period and locale, please do some work and sort out who's who and separate the profiles?

If no one comes in to fix it, I'll make the attempt. But fair warning, I think some drastic changes are called for.

Perhaps, begin a new profile for the James Abercrombie not belonging to the linked parents, Abercrombie of Birkenbog.

Load the new profile with duplications of all the information not belonging to the child of Abercrombie of Birkenbog - once this second profile hangs together nicely, its own connections can be made and the incorrect information deleted from the first existing profile.

I’m sure you’ve checked Wicopedia for the Abercromby baronets in 1600s? My Abercrombie’s branched off there so I’m not familiar with the James s. Quite a lot of them were politicians and quite a lot of others went to America/Canada.
