Jarvis Churchill Entry

+2 votes
Hi I see you have an entry for Jarvis Churchill, of James & Francis Churchill.  I'm curious if this is a Newfoundland entry.  The entry for Jarvis Churchill b 1979 to James and Francis Churchill of Carbonear, Newfoundland is for a boy, not a girl.


WikiTree profile: Jarvis Churchill

Bit of a head-scratcher, isn't it? An unsourced profile, child of unknown and sibling of unknown. Did you try contacting the profile manager? You can send a private message through the orange line beneath Jarvis's death date. If this is the same person, she might appreciate your help!
Thanks.  I'm new to Wikitree and was trying to contact the profile manager when i instead posted this question.
Welcome to Wikitree Stephen! I sure bumbled around my first few weeks, but I also found out that most folks here want to collaborate, and will lend a hand if they can. I'm hoping the profile manager will respond to you right away.  

I also sent you a message with a couple of thoughts, it should be in your email.

Since there is almost no information on that profile - unnamed parents, one unnamed sister, and no locations for any of them - it is difficult to tell if these are the same people.  There are dates, though, and the profile for Jarvis states born about 1800 and died 1870, which is almost two centuries before your Jarvis Churchill. Though the accuracy of the dates on Churchill-2230 may be in doubt because of the lack of data and sources, that person's niece, Mary Earle Brown was born in 1839 and died in 1917 in Bay Roberts, Newfoundland.  I'm not familiar with Newfoundland, but that location may help you determine if this is the family you seek. If they are not the same person, perhaps it is the same family and your Jarvis was named in honor of this one?

My question contains a typo. The date of birth is 1797.
