WikiTree profile: James Ketcheson

Hi, Linda, and welcome to WikiTree.

You can request a merge of the two if you’re sure they’re the same. Go to the bottom of the profile and you’ll see “Pending merges.” You can initiate a merge there. A notice will be sent to the appropriate profile managers. It may not happen right away, so be patient.

I hope your experience on WikiTree will be what you hope for. It was, and is, for me.

These two profiles are showing birth dates 4 years apart. Before considering a merge more research is needed to assess whether the first James may have died and the same name may have been used for a subsequent child. If this is the case then the daughter Emma Harriet would appear to have been attributed to the wrong James.
