A lot of inaccurate information

Warning: Check the data.
  1. A child's birth date (Whitaker-208 born 26 Sep 1755) should not be before a parent is six years old (Donahue-73 born 6 Jan 1832) .
  2. A child's death date (Whitaker-208 died 9 Dec 1799) should not be before a parent is seven years old (Donahue-73 born 6 Jan 1832) .
  3. A parent's death date (Donahue-73 died 31 Mar 1917) should not be more than 110 years after the birth of one of their children (Whitaker-208 born 26 Sep 1755) . This would mean the parent lived to be well over 110.
  4. A parent's death date (Donahue-73 died 31 Mar 1917) should not be more than 110 years after the death of one of their children (Whitaker-208 died 9 Dec 1799) . This would mean the parent lived to be well over 110.
  • This family needs to be researched and adjusted. Her first seven children were born 1755-1769. Her eighth child was born in 1873. As Martha is said to be born in 1832 she can not be the mother of these children. I thought it might be a typo, but her line progresses logically if just looking at her and her direct ancestors. I think Martha should be disconnected and the youngest child either removed as siblings to the others, or his birth adjusted.

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Donahue-73 is clearly not the mother of the children listed.

A quick look at the changes tab reveals the wrong mother on the whitaker children. It should be Aprilla Donohue, if the numerous pedigree resource files on Familysearch are correct. I'm thinking there may have been a bad merge of Martha.

 All of the children with Whitaker as the surname should probably have Baker-1725 as their mother (I've not done a rigorous search for sources but they clearly don't belong with this mother). The youngest child, Millard Moses Allison is the only one who should not be changed.

I've made a new Martha Bird and reverted Abigail Donahue back to her original state as gedcommed in.
