Hello Katherine, I hope you are well.

Please see the comments over the last four years, on this profile you created:


Is this is fictional person? What source attests to her existence and currently-connected relationships?

Perhaps you can explain why you created the profile, and then later, removed yourself from it. I worry it's a malingering non-person, or at best a broken profile. It would be great not to have this take another 4+ years to be resolved. Posting here on your profile since you originated the profile here on WikiTree. Perhaps you have a source in your private research?

Hi Katherine! :) I saw that you are profile manager of a lot of Pre-1500 profiles, especially some of my ancestors. I was curious if we were related.... and we are!

Katherine and Greta are 7th cousins Katherine (Alvis) Patterson and Greta Moody are both descendants of Henry (Mayze) Mayes.

We share 788 common ancestors according to the relationship finder.

Katherine, I noticed that you posted on George Bryant Cook's profile. Are you descendant of George or his wife, Nancy? My great grandfather was Albert G. Cook from Barren County, Kentucky. At the same time and place, George Bryant also was there. There were not many people living in the area at that time, so George may have been Albert's father. However, Albert is not listed in any of Nancy's family bibles and Albert has two possible birth dates, 1808 and 1813. If it was 1808, then Nancy was only 11 or 12 and if it was 1813, then he was born the same year as George and Nancy;s marriage. It is possible that George had another partner, who was Albert's mother. It appears from land data that Albert and George's father, Henry Joel Cook owned land adjacent to one another in Barren County and these were land grants. I have looked at hundreds of family trees and Albert's parents in most cases are not listed. Only recently has a few Cook family trees listed George Bryant as Albert's father, but with no sources. Any information that you can give me on this subject would be most appreciated. By the way, Albert's middle name was George, but he never used it, maybe George Bryant did not want it to be known. A real mystery. Thanks, John T. Cook

Hi Katherine,

I notice that you have no sources for Segrave-36 and all of mine have a different first name (which tallies with what you call her on the profiles for her husband and children). I'm going to go ahead and change it, adding sources, and remove my comments from 2018 on.

As one of the co-leaders of the European Aristocrats project, I'm messaging to inform you that we are removing the "House Assignments" from our project structure. You are absolutely still welcome to work on the profiles from the families that you chose, we are simply removing the official House Assignments as, for the most part, people choose to work on whichever profiles interest them. We're glad to have you in the project and we hope that you continue to work with us!

Regards, Amy Utting

Hi Katherine, I can't change anything on Château-du-Loire-7 , because I'm not pre-1500 certified. But if you are, you're welcome to correct it. If not, I would suggest posting the suggestedcorrection and a request to change it in the G2G forum. Thanks!

Hi, Katherine

My maternal great-grandmother was a Wheelhouse from Petersburg, Virginia. Dora was a distant cousin. I'd like to know more about her husband, Henry "Hank" Carl Alvis.

posted by Lois Lane
Sorry for the delay in responding. I just saw your comment today. All I know about Henry Carl Alvis are the dates and parents I have listed. If you follow his ancestry back, you'll find our common ancestor, David (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Alvis-78). I have a lot about David, but it's all posted here too.

Good luck, Kathy

Hello Katherine,

Could you please revisit this profile which you created some time ago?


It has subsequently been merged and I believe the current profile manager is unable to edit it.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Katherine

I am so happy to hear that you have taken a leadership role in the Magna Carta project! I have seen and followed your work all through many of the names listed in the "Royal Ancestry books!"

Welcome! Holland-3338

I've edited the text at Bressey-3#Magna Carta Project to say you've joined the project as the profile's Gateway Guardian. Here's the sticker for your profile (copy the coding from the e-mail; feel free to change how your name displays):

Hi again! For some reason, I thought you were already a member of the project. You now have the Magna Carta Project badge* & I'll get you set up as Gateway Guardian for Thomas Bressey. When you get a chance, head over to https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/wikitreemagnacarta & send a join request (it's the project's Google Group, which is tied to WikiTree-36).

Cheers, Liz

  • "Badge" is used as usual in WikiTree, but the project also refers to badged profiles/badged trails, which is a different thing. See the project's glossary for details.

Sorry Katherine, I think I must have copied the wrong ID it was supposed to be a merge between two people who were the same. Will try again.
