William Henry Dutton member of the 59th Regiment of Foot

+3 votes
William Henry Dutton is the son of Thomas & Maria Dutton.  I have done a lot of research on this gentleman to ensure he was not my ancestor Thomas Dutton, who I was told was a member of the 59th Regiment of Foot in England but alas they are not the same person

So I'm trying to decide where to put the quite detailed info that I've built up (that is extensively referenced), there is no tree for him on Family Tree and I can't find the couple of Thomas & Maria Dutton to attach him to on WikiTree, he had no children so he may be overlooked when others do research.  It seems a waste to not put it somewhere so that someone can find it in the future.

Any suggestions?

Do put it up. Add as many categories as you can so that he will more likely be found in the future.

Could you give a little more detail, please.
I am trying to find details about Thomas Henry Dutton who according to her daughter's birth certificate in Australia was a member of the 59th Reg of Foot.  The only Dutton I could find in the regiment was a William Thomas Dutton, I was not sure if this was the same person as my Thomas Henry Dutton, so in order to work it out I research him extensively and mapped out his life.  The conclusion in the end that they are not the same person.[sadly]  

Normally I would not add a profile to WikiTree if it did not connect in some way to another profile. Which is why I possed the question about what to do with all the information that I now have on this individual.

I'm not sure if this is what you were asking but I hope it helps to clarify .

I've put his profile up so hopefully, someone will find him.  If you can think of any other categories that might help please add them in.  It would be ironic if he turns out to be my Thomas Dutton's brother wouldn't it.


Thanks for you help.

Cheers Sandra
