This is one of those Profiles I mentioned before, which lists parents in the Bio, but not in the Heading. Furthermore, James' wife is mentioned in the Bio, but not in the Heading. Margaret, Mary Jane, and Rachel are mentioned in the second paragraph, as if we readers should care who they are. Are they James' daughters? If so, state that clearly. And add them, with their mother and paternal grandparents to the Heading. Also, please remove the remark about James being an Irish son of Robert George. I found the reference to James George in Adina de Zavala's book at: https://books.google.com/books?id=OLlHAAAAIAAJ&q=james+george#v=snippet&q=george&f=false and all it says about him is that he was a Sergeant from Gonzales.

The parents, wife, and children will not appear in the "heading" until those profiles are created. There is no rule that I know of which says that the PM of a profile is under obligation to create those profiles immediately, if at all. She/He or other contributors may add those profiles as they feel they have the time. Personally, I think the PM did a commendable job on this profile.

William, allow me to explain my negative vote. While I normally support and and am heartened by efforts at profile improvement on WikiTree, I cannot understand why anyone would criticize a fellow member's work on G2G. It's a Wiki. That means do the improvements yourself, or post on the profile, or send a private message. That being said, I'm getting out my umbrella and suggest you do the same.
