Thanks H.

They have all been protected, plus DL identified a duplication and that merge has been initiated.  As far as I am concerned, the 'extra tab' on the forefathers spreadsheet can be deleted.

I'll start work on the next batch of 20 or 30.  I believe that I now have at least one solid source for all of the forefathers.  The hardest part is often sorting out what's already on the wiki.

Cool names!

- particularly the Corvhorn brothers. Seeing that they had Finnish background made me think they had originally been Korhonen - and then nicknamed Korvhorn (=sausage horn) by their New Sweden compatriots.

This is, of course, pure speculation.

Simon Johansson-3194  is already PPP.  I have been following his descendants.  It appears that Simon Johannson -3222 is the same individual

I agree. These appear to be the same person. I'll initiate a merge.
