Grrrrr. I’ve got to start working on my already existing profiles to tighten them up and drop my Patterson research for a while.
Taking in all the great advice given to me here the last couple of days, I have decided to detach Gabriel Patterson from John and Sarah Keith Patterson with notes in Gabriel’s bio explaining my reasoning. I just want to slap Gabriel for not having any... and I mean any.... conclusive documentary evidence for his existence, not to mention being a son of John and Sarah. I really, really hated to do this, as it was a very good line to have, going back to Scotland and beyond, but I would be false to claim a descent just because I like having it.
Beyond that, even in the midst of my frustration, I want to thank all of you for doing your best to help me out. It wasn’t for naught. It did make me face up to the seriousness of documented sources here in WT. I may have to do this very thing with my Finley ancestry, too.
Back to it.....
