Unconnected; Ambrose Rucker

+5 votes
I adopted this profile. There IS a line of Ambrose Rucker's......and the entire line seems to be correct and accounted for; I have no clue where this profile could have been sourced from. I was thinking he simply would need to be merged with a duplicate somewhere but, he's not even born in the general time frame for a possible merge.

I KNOW this doesn't really answer your question!  It's hard to be specifically exact, but I added a _Williamsburg Gazette" article on the "Images" page.   In 1774, might he have been part of what we would call the "county court" today??  In the comments for the image, I suggested this in the "I hopes this helps" category.

For what it's worth.

This whole line is a bit of a mess. There is another Ambrose listed with Ambrose and Mary Tinsley as parents, born in the 1760's married to Elizabeth Lucas. There is a brother Reuben, married to Margaret McDaniel. Along with another brother named Reuben........

His parents are correct; they are my 7th great grandparents. But between Reuben and Ambrose, theres some mix ups :/
