A profile manager recently transferred a number of profiles to me that are supposed to be connected to McIntoshes in my family line. Many of the names are completely unfamiliar to me, and there appears to be no proof of the connections that have been made (although they may be valid). Many of these are now showing up on my error report for such things as "father too young", etc. Most of them were created by an Ancestry Gedcom import and have no other source information.
Francis Vineyard supposedly was born in 1728 in Dutchess, New York and died in 1831 in Union City, Warren, Ohio, US. This would make him 103 years old when he died, which is technically possible, but doubtful. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Vineyard-263
Francis supposedly has a brother, Francesco Antonius VanEerd who was born 1693 in England. Again, it may be technically possible, but doubtful. Their father, (John) Vineyard-94, and Francis's English "brother", VanEerd-1 are creating one of the "suggestions" (errors) , since they were both born in the same year -- one in Virginia, and the other in England. (I can probably cut the brother loose-- he almost certainly doesn't belong.)
My connection to any of them, if there is one, is through Vineyard-266 at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Vineyard-266 (Elizabeth -- Vineyard or Tollett -- who married John McIntosh) She is currently connected as the daughter of Vineyard-263, Frances Vineyard, who is mentioned above.
Many online trees (also unsourced) give Elizabeth's father's name as Marcus (or Mark) Tollett, possibly born about 1725 in Maryland. (If true, Elizabeth should not be Vineyard-266, but Tollett - ##.)
Can anyone help me get a toe-hold on any of this? I'm hoping I can learn at least one or two facts that are at least somewhat convincing before I can muster the energy to try to sort these profiles out.
My earliest ancestor in this line that I have some confidence in, is https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/McIntosh-884 (Catherine McIntosh, born in 1775 in Virginia)..
I'd appreciate any assistance or advice.
