Cleaning up Presidental lines

I'm going to start working on cleaning up lines to presidents, as I now have have most all of the presidents showing up on 30 generations searches.  The line that most all of them show up on Pruddens (Prudens), then Lyons and then ultimately back to Mowbray-54.then down to a president.  I decided to start with Joaanna Lyon and work boih ways,  The first thing I noticed is that she died in 1761 but is is shown with an United States at the end of her death place.  She has a couple of profile managers who I'll contact, but figured I'd post since she was born before 1700

There are serious problems with the Lyon pedigree, I would not consider any distant connections through them to be valid.

See for example http://dgmweb.net/Resources/GenLin/Gen-Lyon-BogusPedigree.html and all the links connected to it. Or, just search for “bogus Lyon pedigree.”

The Lyon book that was recent published has the same or similar lineage, with no good sources to prove the connection to the Scots Lyon Family.
