In working to get Maria Westfall ready to merge into (PPP NNS) Maria Westfael and her moms profiles to be merged I was sourcing Maria's children when I ran into a couple problems -  current exasperation is due to this mixed up Benjamin thing - only one of these Benjamins served as Captian in the Revolutionary War in the Northampton Militia from April 16 to May 26 1782.

Only one of them was born in Walpeck in 1741 to Niclolas Schoonhoven and Pierternella Westfael (Schoonhoven-37) while the other is born 1750 in Minisink to Thomas Schoonhoven and Maria Westfael (still attached to the soon to be merged Maria Westfall) Schoonover-14

Now it seems there may be a third Benjamin in the mix that got bad merged into these guys - I may need assistance sorting it all out right - as to which is which even though I have the two mentioned birth primary sourced

of course it all began out of a  De Coursey GEDCOM - and yes - y'all warned me about those!
No telling how many people are conflated into that one profile!
It is a stinking mess - but my stubborn butt will eventually peel this onion back and re make the other guys if they are not already here somewhere - have to go visit the kids now - wow in a week and a day I will have a grandson!  The kids will look at all this some day and think it is cool, maybe
Yes, they will, Navarro. And congrats on the grandson!

Yes!  Some of the answers I need are on the old message boards!  So sorting and fixing will commence - still not sure about some - but the 1744 Benjamin has been found!

Now to figure out if Wentje and Sabina are the same person or not - wait more Benjamin fixing to do

Well this project is under way - I have set up a free space page to put all the info in on all these guys and sort out who is who and put them back where they ought to go -

now have a cousin helping too - here the wrong one had a DAR memorial thing on on his grave!  These guys are really being mistaken by folks and we aim to sort it now!

Wish me luck everyone because I will need it

wonder if I can put a link to a spreadsheet on my freespace page like the one for the colonial place names thing
