I have information to contribute to the profile of Daniel Applegate. This is what I can add:

  • Linage Of Bartholomew Applegate. 

These are the sources I am using:

  • These are already showing as direct relationships. 

Should I contact one of the pre-1700 projects or know about any style guidelines before proceeding? Thank you! Sandena Lee Applegate-2116

Please indicate what information you would like to add and what  source(s) you have for that information.

WikiTree profiles are not valid sources for other WikiTree profiles, and the fact that certain people are connected to this profile as direct relations does not mean that there are sources for those relationships. Most of the profiles for Daniel and immediate family members range from unsourced to minimally sourced. These profiles were created before WikiTree instituted its current requirements for sourcing of pre-1700 profiles.

If you describe your plans for editing the profiles, the five profile managers and other Wikitree members familiar with this family or New Jersey may be able to advise on the suitability of your information and sources.

Evidently there has been confusion among the various Daniel Applegate or Appleget men who lived in NJ in that time period.

 I found this source that has other sources listed.  These researchers left a note of the version they prefer but did not say why.  http://www.ccsnyder.com/clan/snyder/family/report/ps45/ps45_491.htm  this appears to be the lead in to the project page above.  When I clicked on Daniel it took me to his project page.  

http://freepages.rootsweb.com/~applegate/genealogy/genealogy.html  this kind of source can be full of clues and be perfectly correct but without sources how knows...  but if you want to spend the time to verify what it has it has enough details that it might be a good reference that needs sourcing to add more folks to the tree.  

https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/195295468/daniel-patrick-applegate does not have a photo of the tombstone so may or may not be accurate.  Needs verfication.

http://www.aroundnorthernkentucky.com/familytree/notes/n0000139.htm  you will need to scroll down to find some really good info on Daniel including land and church records quoted.  So if you can find the land and the church records specified you are golden!
