Understanding the Harrison family of Wisconsin

+2 votes

Ignore the current state of this profile, I'm trying to clean it up from a GEDcom import from 2014. 

Would I be right in assuming that this Richard E Harrison is actually the son in LAW of George Fulton Sr., based on their labels in the 1910 census? Would this then make Ellen Unknown into Ellen Fulton? https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MPKT-2BB

Also, would I be correct in assuming that this Richard Harrison is also the one who was born 06 Feb 1849 in Green Bay as the son of "Capt Harrison"? https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XRF7-QV4

Would this also be his find a grave? Especially as the sister is named Sarah Luette, and his daughter Sarah Louette, I am inclined to believe this. However, I would love a second opinion before I jump into this, as it is not my family. https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/84575553/richard-e_-harrison Would this also be the find a grave of his wife? https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/84575546/ellen-s_-harrison

This would also make the following census records Richard:

1860 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MWML-T4F 

1870 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MN9S-CQW

Well, Richard Harrison definitely would NOT be the son of George Fulton Sr if he is the son-in-law. This would definitely lead one to believe that is the wife's maiden name. The the grandchildren of George Fulton line up well with the children of this Richard Harrison and wife Ellen S Unknown, I'd say it is now known.

One thing I did notice is PLEASE put citations preferably with links for sources. 

United States Census, 1910 is not an acceptable source.

"United States Census, 1910," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MPKT-2BB : accessed 18 December 2018), Richard E Harrison in household of George Fulton Sr., Kossuth, Manitowoc, Wisconsin, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) ED 21, sheet 13A, family 137, NARA microfilm publication T624 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 1982), roll 1719; FHL microfilm 1,375,732. 

NOW THAT is a source.

Definitely!! I was cleaning up the profile (it was full of broken ancestry links before) so I wanted to check here before I made the sources official!
no worries. I didn't want someone to catch you during transition and think that was normal sourcing.
