I dunno. On Ancestry, every single record of John is “Ancestry Family Trees.” So, no help there. I don’t know where this person came from. I do remember that he showed up in the 90s as I have him unsourced in my database, so he’s been around awhile. I’m not so sure he ever existed. His son, Erasmus, has a profile on WikiTree. I’m betting that a John showed up here coming from old web genealogies somewhere else.
