Connecting Medal of Honor awardee to Global Tree

+9 votes

Medal of Honor and Notable "MSG Gary Ivan Gordon" (Gordon-7536) was created earlier in the year but there must of been a roadblock in adding his family members. Only his father was added. The profile was on the "orphaned profile list" so I took management of it because of his military connections. He is also on Wikipedia!

But now I find out he is on the "Database Errors" list, Error #568 Wikidata - Unconnected branches to "global tree". . Could someone, (maybe from the "Gordon" surname family, or our connectors project) help us get him connected to the WikiTree Globel tree please. Thanks in advance.

          Thanks, Dorothy! You can also bring this to the attention of the Google Group if you like. I'd be happy to help you with this.

          I took a look and possibly they didn't add the mother because she isn't connected on FAG. She is mentioned in the census posted on the father's page - or at least the wife is. We can probably find more info on FamilySearch.

          Thanks Paula! I added a profile on WikiTree for Betty M (Bonney) Gordon wife of Duane Gordon (connecting them to Gary). Apparently they got married one month before Gary was born. 

          PS: Not sure what google group .. as I belong to quite a few of them at the moment .  Which one would be best??
          I'm sorry. I meant the Military and War Google group.

          Update:  with the help of Sandra Davidson and Francis Sibley we got as far as George Harrison Gordon (Gordon-8239) Born 14 Nov 1883.  However seems far from being connected. 

          Still hoping for someone with a "Gordon" surname interest or connection maybe,  to help contribute some more ancestors.

          Gary Gordon should be connected now. Have connected him to Alford Gordon (Gordon-5911) who is connected. I have done some sources for Alford Gordon. Have not checked the sources beyond him.
