Can someone help me on this, please? I am working on a 15 generation chart, and want to be accurate. The chart, when completed, will be published as a wall chart. Thank you!

It is likely there are some similarities, I believe more research is needed to confirm that they are indeed a match might be a fit for a Unmerged Match.


Unmerged Matches

Sometimes profiles appear to be duplicates but you're not ready to merge them.

This could be because one of the profiles is private and you can't see the full information. Or it could be because there is so much conflicting information you're not sure whether the profiles represent the same person or not.

Setting the two profiles as Unmerged Matches will remind you and others that there is information to be worked out.

You'll want to use the text space and comment board on the profiles to describe any disputed information.

An Unmerged Match is a temporary state. You should work with others to resolve the open questions and either complete the merge or reject it.


Thank you, Steven!
I've initiated an unmerged match, as I want the other profile manager to be aware of the issues.  My recommendation for the merge is that the later date of birth is closer to the truth (1758) and the proper parents should be the younger Joseph Tryon and Abigail Benton.

Seems very likely that several of the kids of Joseph senior do in fact belong to Joseph junior.

At any rate, nobody is claiming there were two Honors, two Ephraims, two Georges etc.  So even if their placement is uncertain or disputed, duplicating them isn't really an improvement.

We may be able to understand the situation better if someone can obtain a copy of this:


  • Lynn B. McManus, "New Research Regarding the Family of Joseph Tryon and Sarah Treat of Glastonbury, Connecticut," The Connecticut Nutmegger, Vol. 44, No. 3 (December 2011), pp. 267-274.
(If someone does get a copy -I'd love access to it!)
I would expect that that article will direct us to specific sources for this family.
The summary I have seen indicates misattribution of several of the children of  Joseph Tryon who married Abigail Benton to his father Joseph who married Sarah Treat.   I also noticed the headstone dates were misinterpreted for the wife of David Nye, giving her an earlier birth, which would lead a casual reader to think that she certainly could not have been daughter of the younger Joseph.   My inclination -subject to close review of that article - would be to merge away in favor of the younger Joseph's daughter.  Minimally, unless another Nye/Tryon linkage can be found, I'd remove Nye as married name for the earlier Honor (if we are not ready to remove that record).

Thank you, Michael! I am very interested in the publication you have mentioned. Could you please initiate a merge for the two profiles in question? You are
familiar with Tryon-188, and I am not. Thank you!
I have set an unmerged match so Kay can take a look.
Thank you, Michael!
