I cannot add a father to the profile of Mildred (Lewis) Willis

  • Mildred lewis Lewis-3843 needs to be added as the daughter of protected profiles John Lewis Lewis-684 and Warner-685  As John Lewis and Elizabeth Warner have protected profiles, i am unable to add their daughter  Mildred Lewis  Lewis-3843 to the family.

These are the sources I am using:

  • Adventurers of Purse and Person John Fredrick Dorman hello, Fourth edition Volume 2, pg 556 States that this Mildred was the daughter of John Lewis and Elizabeth Warner, that this Mildred Lewis was the widow of John Howell, widow of John Brown, 2nd wife of Henry Willis, and mother to Mildred Howell 1723-1783 John Willis 1728-1749 Eilzabeth Willis 1729-1783 wife of John Clayton, Ann Willis 1731-1804 2nd wife of Duff Green Isabella Willis wife of Howell Lewis

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

Wendy, add Virginia to the tags on the question and someone from the Virginia Project will review and assist.
Adventurers of Purse & Person does indeed describe this Mildred as daughter of Elizabeth Warner: page 556, https://books.google.com/books?id=tcM40zgdAZgC&pg=PA556

I think that the person who posted to Mildred's profile that she is NOT the daughter of Elizabeth Warner needs to provide sources to support that statement.
Liz, I think that comment was made by me, I was wrong, I deleted the comment on Elizabeth's profile, sorry for the confusion.  I just recently found the info in the AP&P.
Ok. I'm working on her profile.

It's always a good idea to collaborate (comments or G2G) before major changes - and detaching parents is major. Adding a Research Notes section to the profiles involved about the change you made & why is also helpful.

I've updated the profile for Mildred & posted to her parents' profiles - if no objections, I'll reattach her.
