Although I have been doing genealogy since 1976, I am relatively new to wikitree. I was reviewing my Clark/Tuttle line from Esther Clark-Munson (Clark-24874) and found some issues back to her grandparents.
I added a photo with notation for Samuel Clark Jr. (Clark-9611) and was looking through other information relevant to our tree. I have additional children for him and his wife Hannah Tuttle (Tuttle-70) with a references that includes information for Samuel Jr. and Sr. As I moved between Samuel Jr. and Sr., I noticed a problem:
1) Hanna Tuttle (Tuttle-70) is married to: a.) Samuel Clark Jr. (Clark-9611), which is correct; and b.) Samuel Clark Sr. (Clark-533), which is NOT correct. He is also NOT Samuel Clark Jr.'s father. Clark-2048 is the father of Clark-9611.
So, Clark-533 needs to be disengaged from Tuttle-70. Please be sure to not link Clark-533 with this family as it is a totally different Clark. Samuel Jrs. father in this Tuttle line is correct (Clark-2048) and correctly married to Hannah Fordham (Fordham-97).
I also have more information on Katherine Lane-251 with a list of her 11 children (mother of Tuttle-70). Lane-251 father's name was John Lane (1603-1669). He is listed in another profile (Lane-298) with his two wives: 1) Sarah Barnard-Lane (listed as Barnard-3598 as the mother of Lane-251. Barnard-3598 was married to John Lane in 1640). 2) Mary Canfield-Camp-Lane (Canfield-600). Mary's first husband was Edward Camp (Camp-297) m. 1643, and John was her second husband m. 1662. Edward Camp and Mary Canfield's daughter, Mercy Camp-Baldwin-Briscoe (1646-1702) is my 8th GGM. I am a direct descendant from all these people in various lines.
So, I would like to know if I should make these edits/additions, or if G2G wants to do them. If I do them, I would like someone to check my work, including referencing. Although I am old to genealogy, I am new to wikitree formatting and so forth.
I would also like to know, if in these instances, if connections, like John Lane, are considered 'orphans'. I am supposed to be helping with these
