I have noticed in various databases a number of references to events taking place in "Kentucky" when I believe the person involved never left Kent, England.
For example I have a Timothy Jennings (1682 - 1729) who married Dorothy Waterman (1689 - 1755) after his death I believe she remarried James Williams "described as a 'Sojourner'" in 22 Sep 1732. All this taking place in High Halden Kent,
However there is a record in MyHeritage.com for a James William Sojourner which states " James William Sojourner married Dorothy Sojourner (born Waterman) on month day 1732, at marriage place, Kentucky. Dorothy was born Before October 22 1689, in High Halden, Kent, England." (the month and day of the marriage are obscured as I don't subscribe)
Sadly this type of error may be present even in WikiTree.
Has anyone else encountered this phenomenon?
